Why you can’t judge a book by its cover

susanboyle3

Susan Boyle had a childhood dream since she was 12 years that she had always wanted to sing in front of a large audience.  She finally got her opportunity in this years  ‘ Britain’s Got Talent.’

The crowd could not help to react cynically when Susan announced to Simon Cowell that it has been her dream to be a professional singer – in fact to be as successful as Elaine Paige no less.

When asked by Simon Cowell “why hasn’t it worked out for you dear”  she replied ” because no-one has ever given me a chance before – so here’s hoping it will change”.

Too often we are judgemental and too assuming of ones capabilities or talents because of their appearances or the ‘package’ is not quite right and especially in the recording industry  ‘image is everything’.  This is what sells records – according to the recording label companies. 

However the truth is that surprises come in the most unexpected packages, and this is one case where one should not judge a book by its cover.  Susan sings from Les Miserables ‘ I dreamed a dream’ – a song that is quite befitting to her own personal story , her  dream,  to become as successful as Elaine Paige – and she will at that!
