BRITIAN'S GOT TALENT WINNER SUSAN BOYLE MAKES A PERSONAL APPEARANCE AT BROWARD CENTER:
Over the past many years, after the loss of her mother, father and sister, Susan Boyle was devastated. She took the losses hard and turned to music for solace. For nearly two years, Susan refused to sing. Instead, she devoted her time to her church and rarely sang. In 2008, a singing coach urged her to tryout for the TV talent show, “Britain’s Got Talent.” She was convinced that the performance would be a tribute to her mother Bridget Boyle, with whom she was very close and was her inspiration. She was the one who urged her to try out her talent in all singing competitions. Boyle auditioned in Glascow, Scotland On April 11, 2009. She sang “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables. This first part of the show was watched by more than 10 million viewers.
From her humble appearance, one would certainly not expect such a beautiful fine quality voice. Her performance shocked the audience and judges, as well as Simon Cowell, the producer. After the show, she became known as the contestant who stunned Simon Cowell.
