The music of Les Miserables continues to coax huge talent from unassuming characters. Case in point: 47 Year old Susan Boyle who recently walked onto the stage of Britain’s Got Talent amidst sneers and snickers from an already prejudiced audience.
Boyle said in her pre-performance interview that she had never been kissed, lives alone with her cat, Pebbles, and is teased in the streets by the children of her village of Blackburn, West Lothian.
At first Boyle’s audience appeared no more compassionate than the children of her village, as they laughed and rolled their eyes when Ms. Boyle gyrated her hips and announced she’d always wanted to be a famous singer like Elaine Paige.
The harsh welcome didn’t seem to faze Boyle who confidently raised her microphone and sang “I dreamed a dream.”
How did the audience react after her performance? See for yourself.
