Today's discoveries

Today, so far, I have been sewing and discovered Akon's BEAUTIFUL, FREEDOM and SUNNY DAY.  I never paid much attention to his music in the past.  Beautiful caught my attention and so I have been jamming to it while sewing.  I love my mornings!  He was born in St. Louis, Missouri, where I was raised!  His father is a famous musician from Senegal!  

I was 'educating' the kids last night on the brilliance of Michael Jackson's uniqueness and raw talent showered to him by GOD!  How else is it to be explained?  I downloaded my all time fav song of his which is 'Don't Stop' and the kids saw his history making dance moves on the Motown 25 show of his performance of Billy Jean.  Wow.  Then Ali told me about the unit they are working on at school and how his lovely teacher showed the class a video on the amazing Susan Boyle from Britain's Got Talent 2009.  I hadn't heard about it so as I was downloading the video on You Tube, he was telling me that he cried inside (he was at school, don't ya know) and how one should never, NEVER ever judge a book by it's cover.  She floored me and I was a babbling idiot.  That, with little Connie Talbot and Andrew Johnston BGT 2008.  OMG!  I was exhausted by the time they went to bed and I had viewed these videos several times.  Even my hubby got teary eyed at the talent!  Go check them out.  First I have to find the videos!  Found them and linked them and am a mess again!  Let me know what you think!

Susan Boyle floored me too, she has an amazing voice and I hope her dream comes true for her. We loved the father and son act too, we laughed so much I had tears running down my cheeks.

Oh, I missed them! I will have to do a You Tube search. We don't have whatever channel shows this show so I have to get it from YT. I hope her dreams come true as well. I thought she would have had her own family but I think I heard that she never married. All the best to her!
