This singer took my breath away! - Susan Boyle

Susan Boyle from Scotland performed in this season's Britain's Got Talent. What an unlikely lady, but what an awesome voice. She brought me to tears.

Listen to her She's amazing!!!!

I heard about her this morning on my radio station's morning show (Kidd Kraddick in the Morning.)

They were politely trying to describe her. I heard her voice and was like WOW!

This evening, when I got home from work I looked her up. She has such a flawless voice. I hope she goes far...

words cannot describe what I felt when she started singing. Just so flawless. What a very very sweet person. Hope no one digs up some kind of cruel gossip about her. She wouldn't deserve it. for her to walk on that stage, took all the courage she ever had. I am just thankful you shared this with us. goes to show can't judge book by the cover.

Absolutely, Scotch. The perfect example of "let's not judge a book by its cover." Susan Boyle is a treasure and, if she doesn't win, the judges have grossly underjudged a real talent. Go, Susan!

For those of you who haven't viewed her "Cry Me A River" segment, do so. You'll be blown away.
