“My name is Susan Boyle”, were her first words when she introduced herself to the judges and audience at Britain’s got talent audition in 2009.
“And how old are you Susan ?” – asks Simon (one of the judges)
“I am 47 “, she said
The reaction from the judges and the audience after she said that could have shattered anyone’s hope of making it, but not Susan Boyle’s.
“And what’s your dream” – asks Simon
“I dream to be a professional singer” – she says
The reaction from the judges and the audience was very similar, there were giggles and not so friendly expressions. The boo’s from the crowd were louder than cheers for Susan Boyle.

That was how Susan Boyle was greeted by the judges and audience when she auditioned for Britains Got Talent.
Here’s what happens when she recites her first note.
The audience is completely mesmerized by her powerful voice, the judges have a shocked look on their faces, the BOO’s from the crowd change into WOW’s.
In less than a few seconds, the negative energy around her turns into positive energy, the crowd is in awe during her performance giving her a standing ovation. The judges give her 3 Yes’s.

Susan became an overnight sensation. In less than a week after the audition Susan’s video was watched several 100 million times, she finished second in the show but Boyle’s debut album, I Dreamed a Dream (2009) remains as the UK best-selling debut album of all time.
There is something about the video clip that makes me feel extremely happy after I watch it every time, I am sure you’ll feel the same way once you see it.
A very inspiring story about how one underdog scores over and wins the battle. It does not matter who we are or how we look, all of us deserve a chance to prove ourselves.
Dream the dream you want.
Have a Happy Sunday and a Great Weekend Ahead 🙂
