I don’t know if you’ve already seen this piece (more than 7 Million viewers have done that already), or not, but nevertheless – it’s worth doing it again.
Susan Boyle (a participant in “Britain’s got talent 2009”) indeed touches the hearts of the people, who initially laughed at her dreams to be a successful singer as Elaine Paige.

Times Online writes (and that says it all):
At the pre-recorded audition, broadcast four days ago, audience members laughed at the frizzy-haired, church-going Catholic who lives alone with her cat in a rundown council estate, when she said she wanted to follow in the footsteps of the West End star Elaine Paige.[ ]
Minutes later the audience were on their feet, applauding wildly after her soaring rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream”, from “Les Miserables”.
She got a standing ovation throughout her performance, and the complete “yes” of the jury.
It is good to read the stories about her, and her life. See for example here.
The moral of the story: never give up. Never!
Amazing true story.
