Susan Boyle: I dreamed a dream

OK, I rarely post stuff like this but I grew up obsessed with Les Miserables. And I do have a hopelessly sappy side.

Now Susan Boyle, a 47-year-old unemployed, unmarried Scottish woman has become an overnight sensation with her performance of “I Dreamed a Dream,” a classic Les Miz tune. What makes this so remarkable to me is the relationship between Susan’s story and the song’s lyrics.

Here’s the clip of Susan’s life changing forever (one can only assume) on Britain’s Got Talent. Way to go, Susan!

It’s also fascinating to see how many You Tube posters are writing “Copy this if **Susan Boyle** got you here” under several YouTube videos of professional Les Miz performances. Viral indeed.

Here’s an example.
