    Thumbs up This is realy off topic :)

    My second love (besides my wife and family) is "music" (I won't go into that), but yesterday, the below YouTube video was brought to my attention. It brought an blubbering old sentimental fool to tears. I'm a sucker for the underdog winning.... And... this is a FABULOUS story with an incredible outcome.

    Please watch the whole video, this woman stepped on stage without expectations, except the opportunity to sing in front of a large audience, and then surprised herself and everyone in the world.

    She literally became an overnight star, with over 10 million viewers watching the YouTube video.

    Congratulations Susan Boyle

    UNBELIEVABLE ! What a voice...It brought about a sense of emotions in me when I heard it. I do hope Susan goes all the way and proves those non-believers to not judge a book by its cover.....

    ALL THE WAY SUSAN BOYLE !!
