You may have seen this YouTube video, but watch it again. Susan Boyle, frumpy, unemployed, 47-year old church worker is the new media darling from Britain’s version of American Idol, called Britain’s Got Talent.
Unfortunately, YouTube has deactivated the embed feature for all of these videos, but click on the link here and watch it for the first time, or again. Susan gives a stunning, surprising, and heartfelt performance. Even Simon loved her. What a wonderful story in this age of media cynicism.
