Do not neglect your gift. Susan Boyle, age 48, of Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland. REMEMBER HER? She thrilled England and the world when she stood on that stage competing in the Britain’s Got Talent contest on April 11, 2009, and sang, “I Dreamed A Dream.” That was the most watched youtube clip for 2009. In only 9 days it had been watched over 100 million times. Susan Boyle, backward as she may seem to be, has a gift. She is a very talented singer. However, I don’t think she started out singing to make money. I think she did it because she loved to sing. She kept improving. She took voice lessons and constantly improved throughout the 90’s and the new millenia before her appearance on the show.
