The Newest Voice on the airwaves

is really not a new voice! And yet, we've never heard of her before last weekend. How can this be! This is the voice of an angel. She's a 48 year old angel and good gracious this gal has pipes!

Susan Boyle, a lovely Scottish gal who recently sang on the Britain's Got Talent show is clearly gifted. This woman should have long ago been featured on recordings being sold for millions across the world. Her voice is pure, melodious, on pitch, soulful and so full of heart!

When we first saw Ms. Boyle, she was presenting herself as single and saucy as she spoke with the judges on the show. They, as were the entire audience, certain she was joking about wanting to realize her dream of being a professional singer. They laughed, made faces and yet, Ms. Boyle was unshaken.

Once she opened her mouth, I personally think the Good Lord should have reached down and plucked the heads of each and every naysayer in the audience and the world over. This woman is amazing.

Today I was directed to her second recording which I understand is actually her first! This was recorded in 1999 for a charity album. Honestly, her voice is breathtaking! I can't wait to hear more from this Scottish Gal. She's won my heart!

Sign this gal! She'll be wealthy and so will you, Mr. Record Producer, in no time!

I was watching The View as they discussed this angel's talent. Everyone was in awe of her and her gorgeous voice. Leave it to the crass and outspoken words of Joy Behar to say, "Let's give her a makeover. She shouldn't look like that to see the Queen."

What's wrong with the way she looks? She looks like herself. No falsehoods, no fake hair, fake boobs, borrowed clothes, make up from tail to tea-cup. Susan Boyle is Susan Boyle. She's lovely just as she is. As Amanda Holden put it,
" "She needs to stay exactly as she is because that's the reason we love her. She just looks like anybody who could live on your street.

The minute we turn her into a glamour-puss is when it's spoilt. That can perhaps come later when she's signed the album deal and conquered America.

"For now we'll keep her exactly as she is because that's why we've all fallen in love with her. I think it's the underdog thing. It's somebody who's looked after her mother all her life."

Thank you Amanda. (And by the way, did you see the heavy sigh with his face in his hands Simon let out? I think he may have fallen in love with Ms. Boyle's voice. Who knows - maybe he'll actually fall in love with someone his own age!) Perhaps she's won his heart too!) *wink*

Peace and blessings,

I heard this girl sing the other day and she sounds so different from her appearance! I think everyone should dress and wear hair like they like it, but I think if she would like to be taken seriously she may need to change her hair into a more updated style. Sill, I say be who you want to be :)
