Susan Boyle, a 48-year-old woman who lives near Glasgow, Scotland, with her cat, Pebbles, wowed the judges on Britain’s Got Talent with her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables. The reason the judges fell over themselves in praise is: 1) she sings beautifully; 2) she’s older than most contestants; 3) she’s a real plain Jane. The Daily Mail puts it this way: “Middle-aged, dowdy, with thick eyebrows and an unfortunate gait, she couldn’t have looked less like a star.” First, Paul Potts, and now Susan Boyle. Watch Susan Boyle perform. Watch out; you might cry.
She now has a chance at a second career in musical theater. I hope it happens for her and much more!
See what happens when I get behind in my blog reading? I've just seen this post on Dan's, Eric's, and probably other blogs I haven't made it to yet.
