Susan Boyle’s Rendition Of Christmas Classic Is Like None Other, Covers Internet In Goosebumps
Susan Boyle stunned the world when she sang “I Dreamed a Dream” on Britain’s Got Talent eight long years ago. It was the performance that catapulted her into international fame.
For those who are unfamiliar, Boyle was an unemployed charity worker living at home with her cat, Pebbles. When she walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage for her audition and told the judges she wanted to be as famous as singer-actress Elaine Page, Simon Cowell threw her smirk of mockery and condescension.
In a world where the appearance of celebrities is attractive, sexy, and often fake, Boyle’s “somewhat unkempt appearance” (as described by ABC News) didn’t exactly impress the crowd. With only one song, however, she became a living reminder to never judge a book by its cover.
Boyle’s performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” ultimately stunned the audience and judges alike. One of the YouTube videos showcasing the event currently boasts more than 219 MILLION views.
Boyle begins to sing the lyrics of the song, her melodic, traditionally beautiful voice taking center stage, both literally and figuratively.
“O holy night, the stars are brightly shining, it is the night of our dear Savior’s birth; long lay the world in sin and error and pining till He appeared and the soul felt its worth…”
Somewhere in the third verse, the children’s choir joins, harmonizing with Boyle’s strong voice, their high-pitched notes providing a beautiful contrast to her depth and strength. Watch it for yourself below.
