After the recession, the unemployment, the probable bankruptcies of GM/Chrysler and other depressing economic news, it was refreshing to hear Susan Boyle's rendition of "I dream a dream". She put so much feeling into the song that it brought me to tears.
Again, this demonstrates that we shouldn't judge others by their appearance. This also demonstrates the power of the internet to connect us to "talented plain Janes" like Susan.
We've come through a time when overrated incompetent CEOs received incredible bonuses. It's great that an underdog like Susan is getting recognition after years of karaoke singing.
The above tune "Cry Me A River" was taken from Susan's charity CD. I look forward to hearing her sing more great songs.
