I adore this recording of 'Cry Me a River' by Susan Boyle for so many reasons. For a start, you would never in a million years put this sexy sultry voice to the face of the singer. I think this amazing recording also shows how clever Simon Cowell is. For years Susan, with this very angelic voice, was a loser in talent contests and was was overlooked time and time again. Why? Well, clearly the image was not right. Simon saw her and saw pound signs... and the world agreed with him, clearly…
Susan Boyle's appeal lies much in the fact that she looks like an ordinary woman, and is not a young, fit, fashionable stunner like most successful singers today.
