I agree completely, Veruka. And count me among those who were misty-eyed by the end of the video clip...Originally Posted by Veruka;3415656;It seems like in the news coverage that this woman is getting, the "don't judge a book by its cover" them seems to be the talk. But to me, that doesn't tell the story of why its so special. To me, the reason why I sit there watching it with a huge smile on my face is that its one of those moments when you're witnessing a dream coming true. It's the same kind of emotion that you feel when you see someone achieve at the Olympics or something like that. She's this simple, basic woman who had a dream to sing in front of a large audience. It's a basic dream, but one that is totally outlandish for a simple woman like her. But in that clip, that dream is realized. Anything that happens to her from this point forward is icing on the cake that goes far beyond anything she ever dreamed of - but in that moment, she got to experience what she'd imagined in her mind as a silly outlandish idea that would never happen. That's why it's special ... not the superficial "look how ugly she is, oh look she can sing" that many are labelling it as.
