A Star Is Born...

Last night a new series of Britain's got Talent started on TV, I sometimes like watching it for a laugh as many freaks try to convince the judges of their non existent talents although occasionally you get the odd talented person that really wows everyone.
Last night there was one audition that everyone including the judges thought it was going to be a joke and a big laugh, Susan Boyle is a lets just say very average 47 years old woman who's ambition is to become a singer, we all laughed at her at first, I mean how can she be a singer with those looks and funny sense of humour, the judges were prepared for yet another awful performance and a laugh, when asked what she was going to sing, Susan replied: I am going to sing " I dreamed a dream" from Les Miserables. this is one hell of a beautiful song, surely she was going to make a mess of it!!
Well, please listen to her singing:

The judges and audience could not believe their ears, she wowed everyone with her beautiful voice, I think here is a lesson for everyone, it is true that we should not judge a book by its cover, looks like a Star was Born in Britain yesterday.


Today is Easter Sunday, I would like to wish all of our Christian brothers and sisters in Palestine and all over the a world a Happy & Peaceful Easter.

Nothing beats to wake up at 5:00 AM that someone in other world makes an effort and time to share his knowledge with me and others.

Beautiful song indeed and the tittle was the right choice.

What goes on the web stays on the web? Well technically true unless you are fully aware of the things that go around the Internet and its impact on the mankind.

and somebody was saved by the bell :-) and I give Anglo credit fot that.

WOOOOOOOOOOOW! What an incredible range she has. Reminds me of the former Britian's Got Talent winner Paul Potts. So unassuming and yet so very talented.

Nasim Libya, glad you liked it, a very beautiful surprise indeed :o)

Music Lover, I always aprreciate your support and links

as for the last link, the 10 quirky places in London, wow amazing, I knew some of these places but never the little secrets they have, my favourite has to be St. Pauls catherdral replica by Vauxhall bridge, a bridge that I use a lot but never new about this little gem, I sent the video to some of my English friends, they too never knew about these secrets, simply wonderful :o)

lol thanks Lolitta that was so English, lovely :o)

ibeebarbie, spot on, she did remind me too of Paul Potts, I wonder though if she is going to win!!

Nuna, you are welcome :o)

Hi Al !

A great post and I knew shed surprise us all !
This teaches us something :
"all that glitters is not gold "
what a beautiful voice.-

I had a similar experience when playing and singing a song for a friends school , for a charity thing - all looked at me as if I came from the moon. I wear hejab and to be singing and playing the piano was something certain people just cant get through their thick skulls and accept lol
Thanks for sharing
