I got goosebumps and ‘happy tears’ when I watched the YouTube clip that’s gone viral of Susan Boyle’s performance on Britain’s Got Talent.
But I take issue with the moral of the story that has been attached to the great viral video of her performance â€“ that is to say, “Don’t judge a book by the cover.”
What’s wrong with the cover? Susan Boyle looks like a happy, jovial, wonderfully warm and loving Grandma-type. (BTW, what is a great singer supposed to look like?) I just makes me a little sad when people say to/about her: “Wow, you’re a phenomenal singer even if you’re not much to look at.”
That said, what a fascinating voice and performance. It gives me inspiration and goosebumps every time I watch it and listen to Susan Boyle sing with such passion.
