    Default Feel in love last night

    On one of the sailing forum boards that I go to there was a post about an ugly duckling. So I clicked on the link to youtube thinking it was some sort of joke.

    I watched this 47 year old lady walk out on the stage. People were laughing and making strange faces at her. Then she gave a thumbs up to someone off stage. The music started and she started to sing.

    The voice that came out of her was unbelievable. As the tears ran down my face I just sat there and listened. Now I can't get enough of her.

    If you have not heard Susan Boyle do a goggle search and a ton of sites will turn up. Over 26 million hit on her youtube. I can't wait until an album comes out.

    Hey David,

    If you like that, there's another person you should check out. Two years ago on that same TV show, a young man named Paul Potts had an audition. He's a rather plain looking fellow, not someone who would stand out as being "a star". People were jeering him too, and when he said he was there to sing opera, the judges, including Simon Cowell, all rolled their eyes.

    Then, he started singing. Literally everyones jaw dropped, and people were speechless. Paul sang a song made famous by Pavarotti called "Nessum Dorma". This unknown young man who was a cellphone salesman, also happened to be one of the worlds finest tenors. Today, after two successful albums, he is ranked up there with the worlds finest tenors. Men like Andrea Bocelli and the late Luciano Pavarotti. It is one of the most amazing, inspiring things I've ever seen. Even if you don't like Opera music, Paul Potts will make you a fan. He's that good.

    Susan Boyle is the same sort of person, and story. A shy, basically unknown person, who has a voice that is pure perfection. She is an amazing singer. If you want to see Paul sing, just go to Youtube and type in the search box "Paul Potts sings Nessum Dorma", you will not be disappointed.

    I agree David, a VERY beautiful voice. Good for her, it just goes to show, you dont have to look "perfect" to have a PERFECT voice. Take that idol!
    We Live in a MORTAL, FRAIL, IMPERFECT world in which the word "FAIR" doesn't always apply.Make EVERY MOMENT COUNT with the ones you LOVE because it can end in the blink of an eye. Love, Jeannette

    Never judge a book by its cover!!! Susan Boyle is testimony to that.

    Angel, What song are you going to sing!!!

    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

    Take Care,
    Becky

    Bigger Question here is why are we preconditioned to expect that someone
    "unattractive" has no gifts to offer. Why are we surprised that she has a beautiful voice?

    I think she is absolutely adorable. She brought me to tears and I saw my husbands jaw hit the floor (he is never taken back by anything) Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I firmly believe there are a LOT of people in this world who really need to get their eyes checked!!!!
