Susan Boyle, a 47-year old woman from Scotland, shook the foundations of the program Britain’s Got Talent. As she appeared on stage the judges and the audience had their scathing judgment, which was simply based on her appearance, ready. When she opened her mouth and sang I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserable everyone went wild. Susan’s clip has had 50 million views on YouTube. She has appeared on the CNN’s Larry King, The Early Show (CBS), and has been invited to Oprah Winfrey’s talk show. She has proved that your talent does not have to be related to your appearance.
Susan Boyle can start a training on how to become an immediate star. She has shown that one should not be judged by the outside, but by the talent. As Lisa Schwarzbauw said: “She (Susan) ordered the measure of beauty”. Susan showed not only Britain, but the whole world that she has got talent. Being young, slim, sexy and glamorous are items that are not on her list. Her beauty is within her voice. Though she already has been invited here and there I do hope that she will not change and still be the person she is right now. A humble, loving and caring woman.
