Susan Boyle – WTF

You’ve probably already seen this and, if not, it’s worth seven minutes of your time.

Susan Boyle was a recent 47-year-old contestant on “Britain’s Got Talent,” the British pre-cursor to “American Idol.” We don’t even let people that old sing over here. It looked like a disaster waiting to happen once she got in front of Simon Cowell and the others.

What happened next was simply amazing, not to mention incredibly cute. And we Americans love cute – which is why Obama’s new dog has gotten more press in two days than entire wars.  I know, I know – it’s a syrupy feel-good story that has no place in this blog. Still – I can’t even think of anything mean or sarcastic to say. That’s saying something. Though I will say I was frankly frightened at how white Simon’s teeth have become. When he smiled, I fell back in my chair and screeched loudly, covering my eyes. I wouldn’t wish that kind of pain on anyone …

    You are unbelievable, I have watched it over and over and it brings tears to my eyes each time……you are so beautiful with a voice to match

    This proves that beauty is but skin deep and in the eyes of the beholder. Susan has a beautiful voice and she has a presence about her. This short clip showcasing her talent is a tremendous performance.

    Thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with the world.

    God Bless you Susan!

    This gracious woman has an extraordinary gift. Her obvious focus and drive to develop her gift is another tribute to her. (She mentioned she has been singing since she was 12 years old.)
    Everyone should watch this clip. There are many, many lessons to be learned about life.
    I am thrilled and honored I had the opportunity to “meet” Ms. Boyle.
