A short 30-minute journey from Edinburgh’s Bathgate railway station brings you to the small Scottish village of Blackburn, where resides Susan Boyle, who became, only six months ago, following her performance at “Britain’s Got Talent” TV show in London, a worldwide acclaimed star.
It’s been a while now that folks at the local Happy Valley Hotel Pub have seen Susan sitting at her favorite table, sipping lemonade while awaiting the next karioke session.
Upon coming back from school, where she suffered from other people unkind remarks and harassments, she would go up to her bedroom to play her albums and would sing aloud, using her hair brush as a microphone, pretending she was entertaining an audience.
That is exactly what she magnificiently did, many years down the road, surprising everyone when on TV stage , she sang ” I Dreamed a Dream ” from Les Miserables.
On that memorable night, April 11th 2009, her harmonious voice provoked a tsunami of it’s own…with more than 1,000,000 views of her performance on You Tube in the following 36 hours!
Michelle-Coudé Lord, who’s interview with Susan Boyle was published in the Week-End section of Le Journal de Montreal last saturday, asked her to explain the choice behind the songs for her first album.
About “Daydream Believer” a 1967 song by the Monkees, she answered:
I have an advice: if you have a dream, continue believing in it and you will see what comes out of it. There is happiness for whom give itself the effort to dream.
The album is dedicated to her mother, who died at the age of 91, and to whom Susan had promised that she would do something with her life.
