Susan Boyle is a 48-year-old woman with a different appearance from what you still imagine a music star: chubby, messy hair, chin and ability to use limited language. Being the youngest child in a family of 9 siblings, Boyle was born in suffocation, lack of oxygen so her later learning ability was affected.

At school, Boyle was always laughed at by friends. She did not have many friends, never kissed anyone, and did not think she would date anyone in the future.

Boyle loves to sing and always dreamed of performing on a big stage, but she gave up her job to have time to take care of her sick mother. Two years ago, her mother died and sadness made Boyle think he could never sing.

Until the competition, the day that her rehearsal performance was broadcast on television, Susan Boyle had nothing. But all has changed, and thanks to the power of the Internet, her name has now become an inspiration for millions of people around the world.

According to Visible Measures, over 200 video clips of Boyle’s performances have been uploaded to YouTube so far. Together, they generated traffic of up to 47.7 million, plus 125,000 comments.

The name Susan Boyle also dominates the face of the Twitter site, the ultra-small mini-blogging service today. Her performance received praise from the couple actors Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. So far, at least two of Susan’s website addresses have been created on the Internet.

It can be said that the Internet has helped many beautiful dreams come true, but the story of Susan Boyle is one of them, though somewhat late. In the virtual world, where the superficial elements become ever more fuzzy, fuzzy, Boyle’s vocals and talents have the opportunity to reach far, beyond the social boundaries, culture and tradition.

The Los Angeles Times even called Boyle’s story “an American dream” that everyone needs, a belief in real magic to overcome the dark period – the current crisis. And the Internet, as always, is the place to light up, convey that faith everywhere.
