Susan!...

Today's view looks far to the east, to Great Britain.

Too often we judge a book by its cover. It's human nature, I guess. But this is one huge lesson to never do that. Just ask those judges! As of yesterday Susan's YouTube clip had been viewed 33 million times. Would you care to guess how many views as of this morning?

I know I've watched it several times and am not ashamed to admit that I get a tear in my eye doing so. Give it a look... I know I join so many people who will be buying her cd as soon as one is on the market! What a voice!

I saw this on television--and was boggled. She was such a darling lady--and the judges were so astonished...no, you cannot judge a book by its cover.

Sometimes a totally wonderful, beautiful outside covers ugliness, selfishness and other undesireable charactaristics.

How lovely to be reminded that true beauty lies within.

Isn't such an amazing woman? I check every morning and listen every evening before I call it quits for the day! Have a nice weekend.

she is amazing - I hope she has tremendous success and helps to break down this barrier that someone has to be beautiful to be talented.

I love this video!! I saw her on the Today show, and several people have sent me the video to view.
She is soooo talented, and I wish her much success!

I saw this on Thursday. It was so touching to see her make the the judges realize that they were judging her by her appearance and assuming based on that appearance that she had no talent. I love it when a common, average person shocks you with their amazing talents.

I know exactly what you mean! She is amazing and I sew where they want her to stay just as she is. Amazing! Jean

I agree, it is a wonderful reminder that beauty comes from within, and how unwise it is to judge a book by it's cover. What a fantastic story!

She gives me such hope that my outside won't mask my inside. I hate to have my picture taken and she's brave enough to go on tv! And with STYLE! What a woman. What an inspiration!!!!!!!!! And WHAT a VOICE!

I've watched this video several times this week. Talk about going after your dream. I love her confidence.

Wonderful how many people have been touched by this.

I was so shocked by the sounds and jeers of the audience before they heard her song it broke my heart, as well as astonished me! Her cover looks just fine to me!

I agree with Melissa Weisbard's comment.

Thanks for sharing this!
