She’s Got Talent – Susan Boyle
Do your only fans consist of your Mom and your cat? Have you felt like life has passed you by? Take a lesson from Susan Boyle. Just last week she was an unknown woman living in a quiet village. Today she is an internet sensation – for all the best reasons.
When Susan Boyle took the stage on Britain’s Got Talent, no one expected much. But when she opened her mouth to sing, something magical happened. Take a look at her performance from YouTube that has everyone talking.
It can seem like only the young and the beautiful are deemed worthy to experience the opportunities of a lifetime, but Boyle challenges that. There is something beautiful inside every person. There is something beautiful inside of you, waiting to be revealed to those around you.
Isn’t inner beauty more to be desired than the outward appearance? There is a verse in the Bible that says, “your beauty should consist of your true inner self, the ageless beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of the greatest value in God’s sight.” I Peter 3:4.
Watch the video clip first, and then read the comments below of some of the people who have responded to Susan Boyle’s inner beauty. Determine to reveal your own inner beauty as a way to bless others. Who knows – maybe your inner beauty will bring a tear to our eyes, just like Susan did.
In our pop-minded culture so slavishly obsessed with packaging — the right face, the right clothes, the right attitudes, the right Facebook posts — the unpackaged artistic power of the unstyled, un-hip, un-kissed Ms. Boyle let me feel, for the duration of one blazing show-stopping ballad, the meaning of human grace. She pierced my defenses. She reordered the measure of beauty. And I had no idea until tears sprang how desperately I need that corrective from time to time. – yooooo2b
I watched this many times now since first watching the video this morning. It brings tears to my eyes as well. The song was so moving and beautifully performed. In my opinion, this is more proof of how we shouldn’t be judging “books by their covers”. God sees our hearts. How wonderful that Susan felt she possessed a talent and was willing to boldly put it to the test. I would love to hear her perform! When can I buy tickets!!! :) – skimncereal7

God wraps many of the most beautiful gifts in packages we never open – notiltforme
Get the lady a record and let me know where I can buy it. She is the best I’ve ever seen. I cry every time I watch this. I am a 47 year old woman, too, still hoping to fulfill my dream. I guess I can relate. – KathleenKarlsen
