I dreamed a dream

This YouTube video is inspiring, not only for Susan Boyle’s talent as a singer, but watching the awed expressions of the very young women and girls in the audience! But here’s a comment on perspective — it seems as if a big piece of Susan Boyle getting rave reviews is that she is an aging singer (47 years old!) with enormous talent competing with those much her junior, whereas she strikes me as a generation younger than some older singers like Joan Baez, Cher, Bette Midler, Tina Turner, Maureen Forrester, Kiri Takanawa, and let’s not forget 70-year old Buffy Sainte Marie, who just won the 2009 Juno in the indigenous music award.
