Let’s go back in 1984 when disco and synth pop were still ruling the charts. Susan Boyle performed Barbara Streisand’s classic song “The Way We Were” in Motherwell, North Lanarkshire. The young Britan’s Got Talent winner was just as shy and timid as she is these days. You wouldn’t know this young woman would become a global superstar.
It features a 22-year-old Susan Boyle participating in a singing contest. The moment she sings, everyone in the noisy club stopped talking. They are in awe of her incredible talent. A man who works for a newspaper in Scotland found this rare footage and decided to share it on the internet.
This vintage video has been viewed over two million times. Susan Boyle’s fans are captivated by her life and her humble upbringing. Her debut album reportedly sold over nine million copies. Her lead single “I Dream a Dream” sold 3.7 million copies in America, according to Billboard. She even beat pop star Taylor Swift in record sales but it’s easy to see why. Talent always wins.
