Early this morning while I was checking my email, I came across an article on the next great performer on “Britain’s Got Talent” television show.
The article pictured a sweet faced woman, 47 years old, from a little village in Scotland.
I was intrigued.
Anyone courageous enough to stand in front of Simon Cowell and sing would get a vote for bravery from me.
I read on.
I watched the video.
Since when did a person’s physical appearance become an indicator of how well they can sing? Is it necessary for a person to wear the most expensive makeup, have the latest hair style and most costly designer fashions to capture our attention?
There is SO much I would like to comment on…in regards to the audience…but I am holding back…otherwise I would unleash a sermon they have not likely heard before. I thought that the events of the past few years would have made people realize that the outside shell of a person does not give you a true picture of their heart & soul.
Apparently I was wrong to think that human beings have ‘evolved’ beyond being so shallow and petty.
Miss Boyle carried on despite the rudeness of her listening audience. What a beautiful and gracious woman!
She has a voice that we should be hearing (soon) at the Metropolitan Opera.
To quote a Sunday school song, she and her voice are like the line “hide it under a bushel? NO! I’m gonna let it shine!”
It is my prayer that she will be shining among us for years to come.
What a honor it is write about this lady. An American phrase comes to mind…”You Go Girl!!” You were fabulous.
I am blessed to have heard you sing.
