Well, never let it be said that we don't pamper our readers.

Prepare to be privileged.

Prepare yourself for a large lump in your throat.

Prepare, perhaps, even for a tear or two.

Prepare for proof positive that this old Britain's Got Talent.

Sorry, this is really O/T (as well as OTT):

Wow! What a woman. What a talent. What a voice. And what a shame it's taken her all these years to be "discovered".

Thanks for sharing this, Richard. It's like a fairy tale. Let's hope everyone lives happily ever after, eh?

Watching that video shows how prejudice and judgmental humans are in general!

Just because she doesn't look young, hip and beautiful, most assume she must have a voice of a horse and will mock herself in front of millions....

It was difficult to miss the sneering looks, the joking facial gestures and over all arrogance of the people watching.... well that showed them, didn't it....

Incredibly I actually saw just this bit at the weekend.

Usually I can't help but be a little cynical about how these kinds of shows seem to be put together, but it's an incredible piece of TV actually, and an incredible performance.

A very moving and transcending performance. I suppose this lady for one reason or another didn't pursue that directly as a career, but I'm sure she would have trained to get to that good.

Never judge a book by its cover!

Richard, Susan was on the news in Australia, but I missed it. My husband was so impressed that he quickly 'Youtubed' the impressive lady, as he was so adamant that I watch her.

My husband played the song about 4 times each with tears in his eyes.

I wonder if Susan ever received formal training because she is just extraordinary.

The best of luck to her and I hope her dream comes true.

Susan is absolutely wonderful! I hope her life will be the very best from here on in. It's clear after reading some of what she has said during an interview, that she hasn't had much of a life. People can be very mean and cruel. And dammit "they" (whoever those future theys are) better not hurt her !!!!! She deserves the very best treatment anyone can get.
