My mom(!) sent me a link to a Youtube vid showing then-unemployed 47-year old Susan Boyle coming onstage on the talent show Britain's Got Talent. It was thoroughly satisfying to see this seemingly ordinary, out-of-place lady stand in front of a very demanding audience, quite a few nutters jeering at her age and appearance, and then totally, absolutely BLOW THEM AWAY with a crystal clear voice seemingly piped in from Heaven. Let me say, seeing this for the first time brought tears to my eyes. Simply amazing and thoroughly uplifting. Bravo, indeed. Bravo.
