Susan Boyle - A star is born at 47 (?)

I hate all reality shows from Ideal star singer to Dance India Dance to Indian Idol to American Idol. But Susan Boyle- She was someone so different but yet so refreshing, that too at the age of 47.

Have you heard bout Susan Boyle? If not , then it in high time to take a break from your hectic schedule when you are busy converting oxygen to carbon di oxide every second.

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high,
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
When dreams were made and used,
And wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung,
No wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hopes apart
As they turn your dreams to shame.

And still I dream he'll come to me
And we will live our lives together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms
We cannot weather...

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seems
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.

As CNN writes - "But there's something else Susan Boyle awakens in us as we watch her come out of her shell: our own selves. Who among us does not move through life with the hidden sense, maybe even quiet desperation, that we are destined for more? That underneath our ordinary exterior lays an extraordinary soul? That given the right opportunity, the right stage, the right audience, we would shine as the stars we truly are?"

Susan Boyle epitomises hope.. in a world filled with dispair.. Add to that a wonderful voice as well.. I would have seen this video a 100 times... every time you watch this video, you feel as if something special is happening... She is not just a star.. she is a superstar.. a superstar that is an indicator of what someone can achieve if he/she pursues the dream!!!
