Susan Boyle’s Story
In April 2009, Susan Boyle appeared on Britain’s Got Talent and blew everyone away with her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream.” Even though she did not “look” the part, her voice led her to become an international star!
The truth is, we may not have been blessed with Susan’s phenomenal voice, if her mother had followed her doctors’ advice to abort her child due to possible complications. Susan’s mother stood her ground and refused an abortion. Even after Susan’s birth, her doctors persisted that, “Susan will never come to anything so don’t expect too much from her.” (Susan Boyle: Doc Told Mum to Abort Me)
Susan now says this about the doctors who advised her mother to abort, “I am a bit of a fighter, and I’ve been trying all my life to prove them wrong.” She did and continues to do so. After releasing her first album in November of 2009, 9 million copies sold in just six weeks.
Here is Susan’s first debut on Britain’s Got Talent back in 2009:
