When she sang on the talent show, it blew me away.
Such a clear and strong voice. I just listened to Cry
Me a River and again I'm amazed. I'm pretty sure I
was supposed to get that voice when I was born,
I wonder what happened.......:-)

maybe you didn't look like her! (just kidding) You must admit everyone was judging her by her appearance. This is true inspiration. Someone said she took care of her mother all her life. This time life seems to definitely treat her fair. I just love to hear her and reaction she gets when she starts singing.

Even though I am absolutely thrilled with her performance...(and I like Cry me a River even better)...I am kind of saddened that people are so surprised by it. There are countless "older women" across this great nation that sing in church choirs, etc that have wonderful voices! I wonder if this same voice had come from someone we consider "beautiful"...if the voice would have seemed so amazing? But having said that...I say...GO SUSAN GO!

I think we all got a lesson on judging people by how pretty they are. What a woman, what a voice. And discipline, not the wailing and whining that passes for vocals these days. Beautiful.

I was sent her YouTube performance from my cousin..........I just cried the first time that i saw it and I've cried ever since i've watched it.......whether Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges were hamming it up for the cameras it was satisfying to see them actually smile at a performance.... you could tell they weren't expecting much...it's so rare that a person can have such a stunning effect on so many people...........I think that YouTube has had over 5 million hits......go Susan Boyle!!
