“It’s becoming clear that you can’t stop Susan Boyle, you can only hope to contain her. Actually, nobody has even been able to do that yet. The “Britain’s Got Talent” star will hold on to the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart for an amazing sixth week in a row, thanks to another 137,000 units shifted, according to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan. And while her sales over the New Year’s week dipped by more than 70 percent, Boyle still managed to steam past the 3 million mark in just six weeks.”

My wife got me the CD. The beauty of Boyal’s note rendering brings me to tears even tough I tend to be the stoic type.

Her voice is a wonderful gift from Boyal to all of us and from my wife to me. I hope this bit of noteriaty leaves her in good finsncial shape for the rest of her life.

I bought her album on the day that it came out because I felt so strongly about supporting her....
It’s wonderful to see somebody so deserving being rewarded for a change!

I’ve tried to listen to her a few times. I don’t see what the big deal is.

Is it because people thought she was too unattractive to sing? I can think of a few rockers less attractive than she.

i’d suggest not trying to analyze it too much.

if it’s not for you, then that’s ok.

it has a lot to do with the eardrums, eh?

I also bought Susan’s cd for my mom. She loved it.

Here is a link to the track “Wings to Fly”, which was only included on the japanese release due to copyright concerns.

It’s excellent.

Enjoy.

I love her too. I listened online to her earlier version of “Cry Me a River.” Wow, it was magical! Maybe people love her music because it bubbles up from her own past pain and sacrifices.

she surely knows what she is singing about.

it comes thru in every syllable.

i think the backup singers and orchestration are extraordinary.

Yes, I would love to have a cd quality version of it.

Apparently it is a traditional japanese song, and releasing it elsewhere was not doable.

Her voice is perfect for it, what a wonderful melody.

You are missing the point.

As the article stated, which is true, “Every word, every tone, every expression is on the mark.” “On the mark” are the three key words. In all seriousness, you must be tone deaf...

“Tone deafness is the lack of relative pitch, or the inability to discriminate between musical notes. Being tone deaf is the difficulty or being unable to correctly hear relative differences between notes that is not due to the lack of musical training or education.”

It’s not your fault. you were born that way.

Thank you for both videos. I live in Panama, and don’t know when I will be able to purchase her CD…but I will.

I can’t listen to her without tearing up, and I’m not a “tearing up” person.

I suppose when I get my hands on her CD, I’ll be in tears all day.

In the meantime, I will be tearing up with your kind links.

Thank you.

Was that...awe inspiring or what? Brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it. Here’s this somewhat frumpy older lady and you can just see the bored/are you serious expressions on the faces of the audience and judges, and then she opens her mouth.

Talk about shock and awe! LOL

i am sitting here watching from her site the susan boyle special in various parts on tv recently.

sometimes i can’t see to type because of the tears of joy.

it’s about time.

i have not had tears in a long long time—too long a time.

the tears are joy for her. she deserves every gift now coming her way.

“if you have difficulty in getting that cd, i will be glad to mail it to you.”

You are very kind to offer. I need to take a strole over to a CD store, which is not far, and see what they have. If not, I’ll order it. And if I am going to do that, I might as well make a list of all those things I want but have been putting off. Again, thank you for your kind offer.

Also, thank you for the link on the “Susan Boyle Story - Part 3.”

Yes, I feel the gods are looking after me since I live in Panama. You have no idea how lucky I feel seeing what is happening in our United States.

Panama finally has a very smart, honest president. His entire salary is divided up between three charities. Also, all past and present crooks that were/are in politics are going jail in spite of their political affiliation. He is another Palin.

Thank you again.
