This woman, Susan Boyle, a 47-year-old virgin living from Scotland who lives with her cat, sang "I Dreamed A Dream" from Les Miserables on Britain's Got Talent. She had me on the edge of my seat, my body just filling with joy. One theater producer said, "Vocally it is one of the best versions of the song I've ever heard."
This YouTube clip is a little bit longer, showing more of a lead-in before she takes the stage. I loved seeing the audience and their reaction and then the judges, and how their faces spoke volumes. Of course, as usual, I just LOVE Simon. I love all kinds of music and I love to feel something when I hear a song or watch a performance.
This is one of those performances. It moved me.
If Paul Potts, the first winner of Britain's Got Talent is any example, then it looks like Susan Boyle may be destined for the same fate.
