Susan Boyle's dream

Another of God's angels has descended on stage via "Britain's Got Talent," and showed 'em what she's really got, despite initial smirks from the judges and catcalls from the audience. Susan's video on YouTube, 20 million-plus hits as of this time, brings me to tears each time I watch it. And I've been watching it since yesterday. Especially that "I've Dreamed a Dream," which Susan sang, bringing her audience to an ovation, is one of my all-time favorite songs. The link to Susan's YouTube of that song is below (embedding has been turned off by YouTube), and the actual video from Yahoo Video (thanks for the posters) (the YouTube video has a better audio than the Yahoo Video version). Below that link is another link to her re-discovered version of "Cry Me a River," which she recorded in 1999 for a charity CD that also featured other singers (thanks, too, to the poster in YouTube). Only 1,000 copies of that CD have been pressed. I'm sure Susan will have more songs and CDs to delight audiences worldwide who will make all her dreams come true. Hurray, Susan!

Judge 1 couldn't help but clap with amazement. Judge 2's jaw dropped the minute Susan started her song. Judge 3 (famous for his
acerbic comments for contestant's performances) couldn't repress his pleased smile duringSusan's song.
