I have been battling a virus which keeps receding and then reminding me it has not gone! So I decided to wrap some Christmas presents this morning whilst listening to Susan Boyle. What a remarkable talent! She is not the greatest singer in the world, but there is something very special about her. Frank Sinatra was reckoned to be a great singer because of his "phrasing" ( I suppose it's akin to timing in a comedian or pace and pausing in an actor or reader of poetry).
Susan has an ability to "phrase" her songs, and this, in my opinion, is what makes her, potentially, of great note.
I am not advertising her CD, merely sharing my appreciation of a natural talent. She says that she wants to help others with the money she has made. A shopping spree is not on the cards apparently. She says she is happy she can now buy her family home. I just hope she is not spoilt by all the usual celebrity garbage!
