Exactly one year ago, we were introduced to a middle-aged Scottish woman with a powerful voice. The instance when Susan Boyle walked onto the stage for Britain’s Got Talent was a moment destined for YouTube history. She proved countless people (namely Simon Cowell) wrong and has gone on to win the hearts of many fans. The road to success surely hasn’t been easy for Boyle, but her story – as a reality show contestant, as a viral sensation, as a tabloid fixture – will stand the test of time.
Her performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” still gives me chills. Lin Yu Chan, you have nothing on SuBo.
