Wow! What an inspiration.

Kennedy is on spring break so things are pretty busy around here.

Someone sent me this link of Susan Boyle from Britains Got Talent. If you haven’t seen it take a second to watch. Wow.

  1. I saw that a few days ago!

    I get the point and I totally agree. However, I was a bit offended (but then, this is TV where there is lots offensive, and I don’t really watch TV so I am not used to it…) that they were making a huge deal out of the fact that an average-looking person could sing.

    I mean, come on. We all know, or should know, that looks have nothing to do with a singing voice.

    Also, many of the “beautiful people” are just the “fake people”; take away their hair, makeup, and plastic surgery and they’d look very “average,” and even if not completely so, there are many people in the world – most of us, in fact – who look “OK” and ordinary. That’s the way it always has been and will be. Average people, unite and take over! :oD

    Of course, last word should be that her voice is phenomenal. I’m not a musician but my husband is, and that’s his diagnosis. He’s worked with enough people to know how widespread it is and how unfair it is that the people with talent are often overlooked because people can’t get past the outer packaging.

  2. I saw this as inspiring in many ways. Never did I think about her “looks”. The things that struck me was that 1) she was so unassuming. I don’t think she ever thought she would make it past the judges -she was just happy to sing. 2) It was her dream to sing in front of people and she “DID IT”.

  3. I read a bunch of articles mainly from the U.K. press and was going on what I read there in my above comment.

    I hope she finds success and it’s amazing that she had no path to it before this TV show. That reinforces what I already knew: that some of the best talent in the world never leaves home basements or maybe local churches or community theaters.

  4. She is amazing. I’m glad she got the chance to share it with us.
