Susan Boyle is about to become the winner of the third season of “Britain’s Got Talent.” The final is tomorrow night and it’s just about a sure thing that she’ll win. She has an amazing voice, and a large part of the television watching world has seen her sing on youtube. She’s got over 100 million hits of her debut on the show, and is working on that many of her performance during the semi-finals a few days ago.
She’s touched many hearts since she first burst onto the international scene, including mine. How could I watch her sing the song “Dreams” from Les Miserables and not weep–partly because of her talent but mostly because she was singing it as if it were her song. “Life kills the dream, still, I dream.”
NOTE: Susan didn’t win, the winners were a hip hop group named Destiny. Ah, well, such can be the way of the world.
