Susan Boyle - the hope and courage that the world needs now.

Susan Boyle - one of the 'Britian's Got Talent' contestants (a spinoff from 'America's Got Talent') - is making headline news around the world with her singing; and she's also one of the hottest topics buzzing in the internet space lately. Just what is Susan Boyle about? Why is this frumpy and granny looking woman causing such a big sensation in the world? I mean how did she even get herself on the contest??

After seeing her interview reports in the newspapers and on cable TV a few times, I decided to check it out online. So I caught her video and boy I was blown away! I know why she's causing such a big hoo-ha now, simply put she is someone who can melt away every hardness in people and cause them to reflect on themselves.

I can't believe how this video is so brillantly captured, everything from the audience's reactions and judges' comments, to Susan's image, the way she talks, her chosen song, singing and the lyrics, it all fall in place perfectly. It speaks loud of our superficial world and how shallow we are. But it also captures many facade of a human being - from the good, the bad, the ugly to the hopeful, the courageous and the inspirational - the latter are just what the world needs now.

If you not have seen this, you really ought to, check it out below:
