The web is on fire with this snippet from Britain's Got Talent in the UK. A somewhat dowdy and decidedly plump, 47 year old lady by the name of Susan Boyle took to the stage in a recent episode. Amidst the usual sniggers and rolling of eyes, she proceeded perform the vocal equivalent of Babe Ruth knocking a homer out of the park. The crowd went wild, they practically did the wave. I've never seen Simon Cowell so happy or engaged.
Unfortunately, all of the videos I could find have the embed disabled. Please click on the link above to see Ms. Boyle singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables. It's magic.
