How Susan Boyle Won Over The World

with one comment

Susan Boyle
Last weekend, Susan Boyle was just a face in the crowd.

This weekend, clips of her singing on Britain’s Got Talent have notched up almost 50 million views on YouTube.

Her face appears on the front pages of papers in Britain and beyond, she been offered a seat on Oprah’s sofa and has been told she is as good as guaranteed a worldwide number one album.

The rise of the 47-year-old woman from Scotland has been a true global phenomenon.

Last Saturday, viewers saw Boyle, with double chin, unkempt hair, frumpy appearance and eccentric demeanour, step onto the talent show stage and proclaim her dream of being a professional singer.

The judges rolled their eyes and the audience pulled incredulous faces. Onlookers, on set and at home, were rubbing their hands at the prospect of another hopeless, deluded loser being crushed by a withering Simon Cowell insult.

Then she opened her mouth and sang I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables.

Her voice confounded all expectations – the judges’ eyes bulged, the crowd went wild and Boyle became an instant star.

Ever since, the “fairytale” has travelled the globe and interest in the church volunteer has snowballed.
