Susan Boyle is a somewhat frumpy, 47 year old, never-married British lady who lives alone with her cat Pebbles. When interviewed she seems a bit...eccentric. Susan appeared on the Simon Cowell produced TV show "Britain's Got Talent" a few days ago, where she said her dream was to be a professional singer. Judges eyes rolled. The audience sniggered. Susan sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables - due to copyright restrictions I cannot embed this video, so click here to see what happened. The judges stunned reactions are wonderful. You cannot watch this video and not come away feeling good. There are shorter, edited versions of the video out there, but it's worth it to watch the full seven minute clip I've linked to, which includes the introductory interview and the judges follow-up comments.
