Susan Boyle Sings Better Than Whitney Houston

SuBo is back and she’s better than ever. The recent runner-up on Britain’s Got Talent was an instant sensation after her premiere song, “I Dreamed A Dream,” and has returned from her crazy stint after her over exposure in the limelight. The quirky, sheltered Scot was a tad overwhelmed by her instant fame, and needed to take a step back for a while. However, Boyle’s debut single has hit top seller status on; and the SuBo song isn’t even available until November 24th of this year.

Yikes, that’s over-popularity at its finest. She didn’t even win Britain’s Got Talent and she doesn’t actually have that crazy good of a voice, but she is topping charts and beating out fames like Whitney Houston. At this point, pre-orders for “I Dreamed A Dream” have topped Houston’s much-anticipated comeback album, “I Look To You.” Proof that the media can turn heads however they wish, and make gullible audiences love the sweet grandmother look and personality of SuBo.

Okay, I’ll admit it, I teared up when I saw her first performance on YouTube and showed it to everyone I know. I guess that makes me one of the gullible masses. Nonetheless, I will not be purchasing her album. She makes for a good, heart-warming story but that is about as far as I’m willing to take SuBo.
