More from the now infamous Susan Boyle

Link to Susan Boyle singing Cry Me A River on youtube. (I removed the embedded youtube since it was wider than my posting column.


This is a recording that was made by her in 1999~~ Isn't she fantastic??

She's wonderful! I hope everything got well for her.

She makes me feel proud to be British.

I hope so, too. She's really gifted.

Amazing. What a story!

Collin Kelley said...

She's simply amazing. She was on Larry King last night and sang "My Heart Will Go On" a cappella and her voice is stunning.

Simply the best

Pris said...

I'm still reeling. She has that sweet Ella Fitzgerald quality to her voice, one of my favorite all time singers. Collin, wish I could've heard her on Larry King.

Pris said...

At this point, millions have heard that youtube of Britain's Got Talent and she's been on a number of shows. I hope she makes it and all of this attention isn't just her 15 minutes of fame. She deserves to make it with that voice. Again , wow!

Pris, She's so real. It's not just her voice, which is actually enough; it's that she represents the dreams of the common person and reminds us there is talent around us that may never be brought into the light. She reminds us to open our eyes to possibility and hope.

I know. I felt the same way, H. When I was suck an ugly duckling in my teens (braces, glasses, zits, waaay too skinny) I used to draw girls who looked like me, then erase the ugly parts and 'make them over' to be pretty. Here she comes, cocky and strutting her stuff while Jason and the crowd smirks and likes herself just as she is. A real lesson there. Yes, possibility and hope is everywhere.
