    She’s a wow!

    Thanks, NL!

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    How lovely thanks Norman. What a novelty to see a genuine human being for once. A very difficult song. And a very quiet audience allowing the performer to hold the stage.

    • V.Lind says:

      Very sweet. But when I consider the malice thrown at Susan Boyle on this site, when she had as much “genuineness” as this lady and had had a much harder life yet had hung on to a dream because she had a voice — untrained but rather remarkable — I wonder yet again at prejudices. Is it because this one sang Sondheim (approved) and the other sang ALW (despised)?

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    Come off it. I loved Susan Boyle. Cowell and his gang were disgusting. Don’t make stupid assumptions.I wasn’t even reading this site when Ms Boyle won.

    • V.Lind says:

      It was not you I was alluding to – it was the enthusiasm of the blog. Susan Boyle’s first audition, which I saw on You Tube, is one of the most touching things I have ever seen. But she has been the subject of considerable malice on this site.
