In this time of trouble, fear, the bad economy, cutbacks and lay-offs and just a general feeling of doom as we try to struggle out of this recession, comes a ray of sunshine the likes of which we haven't seen in a very long time.
I'm not a huge fan of reality shows, I'm not a huge fan of television for that matter. Seems like the only things I do watch are sitcoms like 2 1/2 men, reruns of comedies from the 80's and 90's, Judge Judy and what not to wear lol
I never watch reality shows cos I find them the lamest tv I've ever seen.
Reality sucks all on its own. We sure don't need to see people being publicly humiliated, having their dreams smashed, or being screamed at by nasty little Prima Donna chefs. Do we really need to see people's lives being torn apart by the press as in Jon and Kate? Is it like a train crash we just can't look away from?? It must be cos the ratings are high.
I've never watched American Idol or You Think You Can Dance. Being on this side of the Atlantic, I've never seen an episode of Britain's Got Talent show. However, I, like everyone else has heard about the sensation that is Susan Boyle.
I read about her and decided to go to you tube to see for myself what the hoopla was all about.
O. M. G. I was completely blown away by this woman's voice!!!!
This frumpy , middle aged, downright hideous looking woman made me cry listening to I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables. I couldn't breathe listening to her, tears pouring down my face and my heart just pounding as I listened.
Yesterday, again , it was on the news that she made it to the finals. I immediately went to You Tube to hear her do Memory from Cats.
Again, totally blown away!! Again with the tears. I've listened to it over and over and I can't seem to get enough of her voice. Even if god forbid, she doesn't win, in my mind, she is a winner and will go on to do great things. She is an inspiration for every middle aged, less than attractive, frumpy women in their 40's.
Appearances SHOULDN'T matter. The people who laughed at her claim that she'd like to be like Elaine Page, should be ASHAMED of themselves!! As they say, no ones laughing now.
In a world filled with trouble and trials and tribulations, this woman's voice is like a balm for the soul, and a reminder that we CANNOT judge a book by its cover.
If you haven't heard the sensation that is Susan Boyle, I strongly urge you to go to You Tube and listen to her sing. I guarantee you will walk away from the computer a little lighter in your soul.
For every woman who has been made to feel less than attractive, for every woman who's been made to feel inferior, for every woman who has felt the sting of nasty laughter and snide remarks, for every woman for whom the ideal will never be possible, Susan Boyle redeems us all. BRAVO Susan! You deserve every accolade that comes your way!!!!!
P.S. Since I am new to this blogging and I still don't know how to add a link for a website, I will simply say, go to You Tube, type in Susan Boyle and sit back and enjoy, you wont regret it!!!
