GOD must be most kind to Susan Boyle who has made waves over the worldwide broadband via YouTube over the past week or so. (Please click on YouTube screen — embedding disabled by request — to watch her perform… )
When one of my office-mates showed me her class-act performance on YouTube a fortnight ago, I didn’t really bother to take too much notice of it. I was too pre-occupied with work pressures to even watch Susan Boyle’s debut performance on the popular UK TV programme, “Britain’s Got Talent 2009”. Somehow today (albeit workloads) I felt the urge to see for myself what’s so special about this ‘jobless to STARdom’ worldwide fame phenomenon that’s been reported all over the media globally.
And I have to agree with Simon Cowell, her singing was simply and exquisitely “extraordinary”! Without my realising it, tears rolled down my right eye watching the whole episode of natural confidence and exuberance of Susan Boyle backstage, onstage and her offstage emotions at the end of it all… and so had millions all over the Internet world, too, I believe… :) The unassuming 47-year-old Scottish lass has truly mesmerised her ‘initially cynical’ audience. MAGIC!
