Susan Boyle

What comes to mind when you see this?
Susan Boyle, a Britain's Got Talent hopeful that just might surprise you.

Susan Boyle a 47 year old from West Lothian, UK defied the odds and overcame the judgment of her looks and her age with her amazing voice!
Susan wowed the crowd and the judges including Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan during the auditions for Britain's Got Talent. Susan Boyle sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical Les Miserables

If you haven't heard this already, you need to hear this song. A great lesson to learn here: Judge people by what they bring to the table, not how they look.
If you have any pulse left in you this song and Susan's story will insipre you to reach for your dreams, no matter how old you are or what you look like.

If life has killed your dream, perhaps this is a spark you can use to reignite it.

The lyrics have great meaning too.

 

"I Dream a Dream" - Lyrics

There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
And they turn your dream to shame

He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came

And still I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

Susan Boyle, 48, from West Lothian stunned the judges on Britain's Got Talent singing 'I Dream A Dream' from Les Miserables.

    Hi,
    You MUST listen to Susan's Dream: a song about Susan Boyle.
    It is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb6MR8Bs1jY
    Included are the beautiful lyrics of 'Susan's Dream'.
    Susan’s Dream
    1.
    In spring of ’61 God made a deal,
    That Susan’s star will remain concealed,
    When sun and moon eclipsed on April 1st,
    He told Aries “fame is a curse”

    2.
    Let her live her life until forty-seven,
    Let her care for her folks ‘till they go to heaven,
    She’s an evening star, she will show her hand,
    In the fall of her life she’ll become a brand,

    Chorus
    ‘cause she
    Dreamed a dream of times to come,
    She’s our Cinderella-girl

    Never judge a book by its cover,
    Never kissed a boy, now the world’s her lover

    She’s the queen of kind, she’s so divine
    She’s our Cinderella-girl

    3.
    In the spring of ’09 God made a deal,
    That Susan’s star may be revealed,
    When sun and moon eclipsed on April 11,
    Susan dreamed a dream at forty-seven,

    4.
    The girl from the village is the “real deal”,
    Her secret talent is now revealed,
    She’s the queen of kind, she won us completely
    Who cares for make-up, she’s got inner beauty,

    Chorus
    ‘cause she
    Dreamed a dream of times to come,
    She’s our Cinderella-girl

    Never judge a book by its cover,
    Never kissed a boy, now the world’s her lover

    She’s the queen of kind, she’s so divine
    She’s our Cinderella-girl

    5.
    In Spring of ’09 God made a plea,
    to stop our prejudice, to make us free,
    when sun and moon eclipsed on April 11,
    The world created Susan’s heaven
