Just thought I would share this video with all of you out there.

Normally I don't watch this kind of TV-Shows, so wasn't aware of it, until
my sister told me there was a video I just had to see about a gifted song-
talent singing "I dreamed a Dream" from the "Le Miserables" on the show
"Great Britains got Talent" Not my kind of show, not my kind of music, but
my sister persisted that this one I had to see and hear.

So here it is. I got surprised, overwhelmed with goosebumps and was truly
affected by this woman, singing so beautifully. :woot:

Judge for yourself.

Extraordinary. Certainly a huge wake-up for those who would make decisions upon appearance and pre-conceptions. She is not a "refined" or attractive show person in her mannerisms, but what a talent! Thanks and thank your Sister.

Yes, I can see why. She is so awkward and under-refined socially. I was reminded of a TV character named Gomer Pyle He was so ridiculously silly in his role as Gomer Pyle US Marine Corps. '60s and early '70s Everyone delighted in making fun of him. He would say dumb stuff when he was amazed or overwhelmed, like: "Shazam!", "Gaaw-aawl-ly" and "Surprise, surprise, surprise! Later in his professional career he was Jim Nabors Jim Nabors was one of the exceptional and successful male singers of his time. He also received additional acting roles as voice-over in the Muppet Show programs. When he opened his mouth to sing, he was an entirely different person from his "Gomer Pyle" character.

12 year old boy gets a second chance, and maybe changes his life on stage.

Seems someones is getting a run for their money B) Very talented, and fortunate, that he is only 12 years of age when discovered. He got a much better chance of getting his song carrier dreams come true, no matter if he wins or not.

This reminded me of the time Paul Potts got on the show.



Also a prime example that one should never judge a book by it's cover.
I must admit that my softer side came out on both videos.
Just amazing talents and they seem like very humble people.

Something new, certainly something unexpected, re-establishes and brings new meaning to inner beauty.
Listen and watch her semi-final performance.

I can't stand these shows as a rule, but I am forced to endure them as the wife does lol, anyway she was definitely something that not a single person on earth would expect from her, every single thing said watch out here comes another screecher, but as much as I hate that type of music, I have to give her credit for being very good at it, and one can only wonder why it is only this late in life she comes out, her life would of been sooooo much different if she started when she first realised she had such talent, the problem now is everyone wants a piece of her, and thats what I have issues with, as an individual no one would look at her twice, but she sings 1 song and suddenly the demand for her sky rockets. I don't have a link, but if you actually saw what they turned her into so she would be more "presentable" to the world it would sicken you, they are making her jump through hoops like a trained dog just to please what they think the world wants, why they can't just let her have her own look I don't know, and IIRC she has even had tea with president Obama, but I hate to admit it, the judges summed it up perfectly, and said a performer needs the whole package, and with her looks as she appeared she would just not make it, it's a sad world when a persons talent\success is dictated by their looks, not everyone is fortunate to of hard a good life with all the best things like food and clothes etc. But she is through to the final, they just added 2 acts to it last night, and IMHO the dance crew that got through totally deserved to get there, every single thing they did was worked for, and I mean really worked hard, provably 12 hours a day, and that I have absolute respect for, I think they have a show every night this week with the grand final being on the 30th (this Saturday coming). but TBH it makes no difference if some win or not, you can guarantee that quite a few will be poached by talent scouts straight off the stage, and Simon Cowell will be one of them, but with the state of this country being what it is, you have to wonder when the act called DJ Talent can get as far as he has with the noise he calls music, they even predict a #1 hit in the charts for him, I seriously hope not is all I can say.
