About the Video: age 37.

Newly unearthed recording of pre-fame Susan Boyle singing the eighties hit 'Fame' (originally sung by Irene Cara), on April 10. 1998. The then 37 year old sings the song at a talent contest in the Wishaw & District Ex-Servicemen's Institute, Lanarkshire. Andrea Mains realised the lady she'd filmed competing alongside her daughter Charlene was now a superstar.

Absolutely this has to be a "10+" Susan really being herself and note at the end of the song it says "remember my name" and then the compere says "thank you SUSAN"!

I agree with caye, looking back at her photographs she has always been lovely, and guess what, SHE STILL IS. 10

Boy these words are almost prophetic for what was to come ten years later.

There you were, hidden all those years in a tiny village in Scotland. Now, the world can hear your voice and rejoice.

To hear Susan's album is to fill her love and spirit in each song or maybe we all fill THE spirit within us that Susan brings out. I have 4 of her cd's so I would be sure she is every where I am. I have never joined a 'fan club' but will be a fan of Susan's 1st album always. I get completely lost in her voice and the arrangement of the songs. You did good Susan. It is your time to fly, open arms and ready to stand. The world needs more of those songs! Fly!
