She is a phenomenon

A 48-year-old woman, Susan Boyle was suddenly known all over the world through the Internet and the media. On April 29 she enchanted the world with her lovely voice after singing “I Dream a Dream” from Les Miserables, in the British television reality show “Britain’s Got Talent”. Boyle, who was briefly deprived of oxygen when she was born, was diagnosed as having learning difficulties. She is unemployed and an active volunteer with “Our Lady of Lourdes”, a Roman Catholic Parish. She has never married and declared never to have been kissed as well. She has been singing in church since she was 12 years old. She lives alone with her pussy cat. Her mother, who died in 2007 at the age of 91, had always encouraged her to enter local singing competitions, and tried to persuade her to enter Britain’s Got the Talent. Only after her mother’s death, did Susan feel ready to do so in tribute to her mother. Although she did not win the first place, many would say she is a big star.
