Susan Boyle – Britain’s Got Talent 2009

This is probably the first time I post something like this. I am not normally a fan of shows like this but this video definitely caught my attention.

Bah~~! The video cant be embedded. Click HERE  instead

This is her story :

On April 11, on the “American Idol”-like show, “Britain’s Got Talent,” a frumpy woman walked onto the stage and conquered the greatest moment of her life by wowing the show’s judges, audience members and viewers. And now, thanks to technology, she is taking hold of hearts and minds the world over via video footage of her performance.

On its base level, we’re fascinated by this story because it’s heroine has an appearance as bewildering as her personality, yet a voice that seems able to call angels. There’s more to why we love this story, though, and why Susan Boyle will not escape the presence of our hearts anytime soon.
Before Boyle sang, “Britain’s Got Talent” judge Simon Cowell asked Boyle what her dream was.
“I’m trying to be a professional singer,” she said.
“And why hasn’t it worked out so far?” Cowell asked.
“I’ve never been given the chance before,” she said. “But here’s hoping it’ll change.”
In Susan Boyle’s life, we see our failed dreams and unfortunate luck.
Susan Boyle once pursued a singing career, but instead ended up caring for her sick mother who died in 2007, and to whom Susan dedicated her TV show performance. Susan, the youngest of nine children, was born with slight brain damage and never left her childhood home, always living with her parents.
She is unemployed and lives only with her 10-year-old cat Pebbles, but when Susan Boyle sang “I Dreamed a Dream” from “Les Miserables,” none of this mattered anymore. Suddenly Susan Boyle went from being our worse fears, to our biggest hopes.
In her success, we see a phoenix rising from the ashes of disappointment, sadness and heartbreak. We see prosperity after recession. We see good trumping evil and we see a restoration, albeit ever so slightly, to the belief that dedication and perseverance can pay off in the end.
Boyle has become an Internet sensation. She reportedly has already spoken with Sony (SNE 25.00 ↓1.57%) BMG about a contract and is expected to eventually be named the winner of the TV show that gave her a worldwide audience.
A Facebook Fan Page dedicated to Boyle has over 22,000 fans, and, as of this writing, has been increasing at a rate of 1,000 fans per hour. You can expect to hear about a Boyle record sometime soon, because this kind of support proves she already has a fan base, even after only singing one song.
In any other year, at any other time, it’s possible that Susan Boyle’s story would just be a nice Cinderella type of tale that reminds us you can’t judge a book by its cover. However, this year, in the midst of a global recession, with so many hard-working people unemployed and out of luck, Susan’s story transcends the cynically colored glasses by which we now view humanity’s successes.
When she was asked what was her dream and when she said she wanted to be a  professional singer, most of the crowd  laughed. But when she started singing, everybody was shocked~~!!
Bam! A pie to the face! LOL.
And by the way, the video has generated over 11million views!!
Lesson of the day : Never ever laugh at someone’s dream no matter how ridiculous or how impossible one may sound. Nothing is unreachable! And for those who have a dream, be proud of yourself and say it out loud! You never know when along the path you will meet someone who will help you achieve your dream. And its one of the best things in life to have a dream! It makes life all the more sweet!
And coincidentally when I am writing this, I am listening to R Kelly – The World’s Greatest! ^^,
