It's refreshing to discover that a woman can be successful at musical entertainment without being young, sexy or scantily clad.
I saw "The Susan Boyle Story" for the first time tonight and I was impressed and moved to tears several times. "Cry Me A River" did just that to me. It was an old standard from the 1940s, but it seemed like it was was written with Susan in mind.
I find it great that someone could express themselves with superb music rather than formula MTV rock songs of the 21st century. Susan's first album went platinum faster than any other first album without the help of a"Big Sexy MTV Music Video".
Susan Boyle's story shows that artisic and personal success can come at any time or any age if a person follows his/her dreams.
In some ways, she is similar to Canada's Rita MacNeil.
