UPDATE 4/20/09; 12:30pm: YouTube views rocket past 33.6 million since Saturday, 4/11. Profile of Susan Boyle HERE.

West Lothian, an obscure village in Scotland, a rather dowdy forty seven year old, Susan Boyle, decided to try and make her dream come true on Simon Cowell’s Britain’s Got Talent.

The audience laughed and snickered when she said she wanted to be as successful as Elaine Paige, the First Lady of British Musical Theater. Singing I Dream a Dream from Les Miserables, Susan proved you can never, ever tell a book by its cover. Hope springs eternal.

Enough said. Take a seven minute break and watch the video. It just might bring tears to your eyes.

A friend forwarded this link to me earlier today. It made me feel as if anything is possible ... regardless of what the critics may say :)

Oh dear, you are in deep shit with the "Bravehearts" now... West Lothian is not in England, it's in Scotland. The Scots are very adamant about that kind of stuff... No Haggis for you today!

I stand corrected, George, with apologies to the "Braavehearts" and the Forbes family.
