“Family Historian” Susan Boyle wows them on UK “Idol” TV Show!
Susan Boyle is the woman with a dream that lives in Blackburn, in West Lothian near Edinburgh – a short distance from East Lothian, Scotland where my Kemp family hails from. Now 47, she lives at home with her cat Pebbles.
All her life, since she was twelve, she has had the dream of being a professional singer as successful as Elaine Paige and signing, performing before a large audience.
Saturday night in Glasgow she got her chance on UK’s version of the American Idol TV show – Britains Got Talent.
Her performance was stunning, overwhelming and deeply emotional.
A triumph for her and for us. She sings of the dreams, the dreams in all of us – and no doubt the dreams of our ancestors, both realized and unfulfilled. Her moving presentation has been viewed live by millions and by well over 10 million more people in just the last few days via the Internet. She captivated her audience with this haunting anthem of dreams, seemingly almost lost and for her now realized at this time in her life.
Is Susan Boyle a genealogist?
I don’t know – but she made history for her family Saturday night.
In the words of Susan Boyle herself, this presentation was “just so emotional; unbelievable and emotional; fantastic.”
