Susan Boyle - Wow! Wow!

My mother sent this link. (For some reason Youtube won't let people embed the video.)

Susan Boyle is a contestant on Britian's version of "American Idol." She's 47, lives along with a cat. She's unemployed. At the start of the video she comes across as an average person, maybe even lower class.

Then she sings!


According to this web site, Susan put off chasing a music career to take care of her sick mother, who died at the age of 91 in 2007.

Well it looks like her music career will be doing just fine. A single Youtube video of her singing has had over 3.5 million views, in just three days.

This is a good reminder not to judge a book by its cover.

Now go watch the video.

Update I - 14 Apr 09
In just the seven hours since this post when up the Youtube video has had another million hits!

Here's a nice article with insight into who is Susan Boyle. Just amazing.

Technorati tags: Susan, Boyle
