Susan Boyle Overnight International Singing Sensation

An amazing video of 47 Year old Susan Boyle's performance on Britain's Got Talent has gone viral with over 15 million hits on YouTube. Never married, unemployed (but still looking) Miss Boyle's life has been instantly transformed by her appearance on the hit British TV show that was taped before a live audience last January.

Susan Boyle appeared on the CBS Early Show which gave the world a glimpse into the life of the onetime kareoke singer turned superstar.

And after her sensational performance on Britain's Got Talent, Susan Boyle now has a Fan Site up on the web. Audio from the only previously known CD featuring the singing talent of Susan Boyle was uncovered by the Daily Record and posted on her Fan Site. The recording was done in 1999 according to the Daily Record and produced as a fund raiser for a local charity. Only 1000 copies of the CD were published according to the Record. Here you can listen to Susan crooning the ballad, Cry Me A River. -- Another flawless performance.

When you first see Miss Boyle in the YouTube video she seems very ordinary and unremarkable but within this woman are the makings of a star. She has such raw talent, that she amazes sardonic hosts Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden who initially greet her appearance with a combination of scoffing and patronage, a reaction shared by the in-studio audience. Those initial reactions are soon put to flight as Susan gives a flawless rendition of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables. In one breath Susan Boyle from West Lothian in Scotland transformed a theatre filled with world-weary cynics into a standing, cheering, clapping gathering of true believers.

The amazing video of Miss Boyle's appearance on Britain's got Talent is available here.

The world dismissed her entirely, but God had other plans for Susan Boyle from West Lothian, Scotland. As written over three thousand years ago, the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7b)
