Five months ago we were swept up by the Susan Boyle drama; chronicling the surprise, the controversy, and the pure musical pleasure. My last words regarding Miss Boyle were, “I am sure the world will hear much more from the Scottish songbird.”
And so we have. Tuesday night she stole the show on America’s Got Talent Final with her powerful rendering of the Stone’s classic Wild Horses. Not being a fan of the Rolling Stones or Andrew Lloyd Weber, I was once again won over by the voice and not the melody.
As for the ongoing A Star Is Born melodrama – I’ll leave that to the tabloids – her music is quite enough for me.
