I got hooked on this talent show gal (apparently like millions of others) and this Scottish paper dug up what is supposedly a 1999 charity recording by Susan Boyle. I'm no expert but this is no fluke, imho.

Check this song out by the lady from Britain. She was amazing in 1999, too!

Excellent, I see what all the fuss is about. Even though I have to say I prefer the sultry Julie London version of this particular song better.

Good GOSH!!! I don’t care what she looks like, that gal can sing!!

If you just heard that song, you would think tall blonde gal in a slinky dress on a piano.

Wow is all I can say and I want to buy her album because she can SING!

No kidding! I mean this is a dowdy girl from Scotland who took care of her mother and has never been kissed! Talent, just sheer born talent.

Amazing voice. Amazing woman. She has pleasing facial features — she’s just chosen to remain natural. I rather like it.

Funny how both Boyle and Potts won on good old classic tunes. The music that will never be out of date. I enjoy both their talent and perserverance and would love to see more of this music come back.

I just listened and think Susan Boyle has a very lovely voice. Thank you for this link. I saw the UTUBE of Susan Boyle and thought she was great there as well.

...”Susan suffered a mild form of brain damage at birth and she admitted to Sawyer that she was bullied when she was younger. “They did a bit,” she said, “but they always do that with someone who is quiet and I tended to be quiet at school” ...

:(

What a joy to hear a beautiful voice of someone who can sing. Such a relief from the drivel of rap and rock. This woman has more talent in her little finger than all the bodies of all the rapsters in the world. I can't wait to hear her first solo album. I will buy it for sure.

The woman has a stunning voice. I am not at all ashamed to admit that her performance on Britain's Got Talent brought a tear to my eye, if only because of the look of wonder on Simon Cowell's face. Her performance of Cry Me A River is even better; soulful, longing, and emotionally mature in a way that reveals the shallowness of most modern artists. God bless her.

andy I agree with you. This song is done better than the one she sang last week.

As I understand it, she is planning to sing a different song in her next appearance.

I saw it in one of the newspaper interviews. I'll see if I can find it.

Thanks - I would love to hear more. Her appearance brings to mind that of Paul Potts a couple of years ago. I still go back to YouTube and listen to his audition for the same reasons: it is comforting to see how true artistry can move even the most cynical among us and remind them that our culture is capable of so much more than what we have become accustomed to.

I think her personal story of sacrifice for her mum is so touching! She has the voice of an angel, a true gift from God.

Just a tear? You must be pretty stoic. I was blubbering like a fool! I was never so proud of anyone in my life than to see that unassuming woman put every one of those sneering folks back on their heels! And it was thrilling to hear that one sustained part, where the power of Susan's voice brought that chick in the green dress to her feet!
