I'm sure by now most of you have heard of Susan Boyle. She is a 47 year old lady who is unemployed, nothing special to look at, has never had a boyfriend or even been kissed. She lives alone with her cat. She seems like a nice lady.
Yet, when she walked out on the stage, of Britain's Got Talent, most people in the audience, including the three judges, rolled their eyes and chuckled when she said it has been her life long dream to be a professional singer.
They clearly didn't expect this woman to provide them with anything more then a few laughs and witty words, as they bid her farewell and watched her walk off the stage feeling nothing more then rejection.
Sarcastically, Ms. Boyle was asked why she never became a professional singer. Her reply was "I've never been given the chance."
The judges then told her "Go ahead then, here is your chance" and gave her the nod to start singing. The music played and she started to sing. The cameras were watching the people in the audience as well as the judges. There were no more eye rolls or giggles taking place.
Instead there were mouths that dropped, eyes opened wide and looks of disbelief upon the faces who heard her sing.
You see, this lady whom everyone expected was going to sing off key and make a fool of herself, had a voice from Heaven. There was no one in the room who could take that away from her. It was lovely and brought many to tears as they listened.
The judges were blown away and said she was the best they had heard in three years that the show was on. They were humbled and admitted they didn't expect that voice to come out of her body.
Ms. Boyle has quickly turned into an over night star. Showing up on YouTube and every news station here and abroad.
I am absolutely thrilled for her. She alone proved to the world that we should never judge a person by the way they look. Everyone should be given a fair chance at life, as you never know what gifts a person has inside them.
