Susan Boyle - Wake Up Call

By now, if you're not one of the 12 million plus who have viewed Susan Boyle's performance on YouTube, it's still not too late to be part of the ever growing number! I have forwarded the link to my friends and thought that I should put it up here too. Susan Boyle suddenly became an overnight sensation when she auditioned on Britain's Got Talent. Why is that?

Because of the way she looked? Because of the fact that she's 47 years old? Because no one believed in her? Because people didn't take her seriously when she said she wanted to emulate Elaine Page? It makes us all think about how we treat or judge others .... a wake up call indeed.

Well, when Susan Boyle started to sing....Boy! Did she SING!!!!!!!!! I put together some screen capture of her video here...capturing especially the change in the judges' expresssion (only Amanda was not shown being skeptical at first, but pleasantly surprised when Susan started singing). The guilty judges were Piers Morgan and Simon Cowell!

To enjoy the actual video (sorry, embedding is disabled by YouTube), click HERE and be part of millions who have gotten the Susan Boyle Experience!

UPDATED! A 1999 recording of Cry Me A River performed by Susan Boyle has been unearthed (apparently discovered by the Scottish newspaper, The Daily Record). Click on it for a listen (AUDIO only).

ENJOY! It's Friday!

Nope, haven't seen this yet though it's all over Facebook. I thought it was another William Hung type phenomenon and wanted to avoid it.

Good thing you clarified matters here on your blog. Now I can go watch with an easy heart. :)
