Susan Boyle took the world by storm when she first tried out for Britain’s Got Talent. I will never forget the look on Simon Cowell’s face when she let loose with song. A quiet, sheltered Scottish woman with the voice of an angel.
She wasn’t just a songstress; she had an unwitting charm about her and an adorable sense of humor. These were the traits that surprised the judges more. She looked and sounded like a normal housewife. I remember she was wearing a long-flowered dress. She told the judges that there was another side of her that they didn’t know, which surprised Simon, to say the least. The judges gave her the green light to start the song, and she did.
She chose a classic song to perform, and it showcased her great singing voice. The judges and the audience were so blown away that they gave her a standing ovation. After that performance, everyone’s hopes were very high, and she managed to deliver every single time. She went on to the finals and took home the 1st prize and her chance to perform in front of the Queen.
The following video shows Susan Boyle putting her mark on the classic ‘Unchained Melody’ – and she absolutely nails it. This single shows you just how much she has improved her already-great voice. This courageous woman has come a long way and proven to us that age is just a number and that if you persevere long enough, you will reach your dreams no matter the circumstances.
