"Wild Horses" song, amazing...

To me this is amazing. Rarely does a singer outperform the original (Rolling Stones '71). If you've never heard of Susan Boyle, listen to this first...
Watch "Britain's Got Talent - 47yr old lady shocks everyone in amazement" on YouTube

Having Aspergers Syndrome Susan should give hope to anyone. Here's her version of Wild Horses...

Watch "Susan Boyle sings Wild Horses on America's Got Talent 2009" on YouTube

Ahem, please don't go there. I'm glad that this lady can sing a song well, but she's not an inspiration because she has a disability.

Saying stuff like that is uh... A BIG no-no in the disability community. It's something that drives the lot of us completely crazy.

And yes, I am disabled. I'm on the Spectrum ((Aspergers Syndrome is no longer used as a diagnosis, it's all just Autism Spectrum Disorder now)).

Perhaps this link will explain it better:- https://www.self.com/story/i-am-not-...e-a-disability

or maybe this one:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inspiration_porn

I grew up on a farm, grandparents lived next door with their son (mom's brother) who had Downs Syndrome.
My intention was certainly not to offend but Susan Boyle was also bullied as a youngster.
My point is, and I hope you'll agree, is there are plenty of people who have everything going for them but they wasted their life. Over the years I've lost family members and friends, one recently to drugs and alcohol.
I'm sorry if you were offended, not my intention. Anyone can succeed at anything.
If you disregard disability...what do you think of this version of the song?

I remember when she swiped the smirk off the faces of the judges as beautiful noise spilled from her...
She is indeed gifted.

She has been a favorite of mine since...
I have several of her CD's...the very first ones were not done in a quality studio...
Her latest are done professional quality and sound....
She has indeed made it as was her dream...and made it big.

Fuddy... words from the heart shared..
Anyone classified as "different" is still a human being, has a heart, a soul, feelings...a mind.

For some, having a "label" opens many doors otherwise would of been closed...
I too have family "labeled" and work parts of my life with the disabled as my choice.
When one door closes another opens and often a window with a breeze too...
Today there are many many services world-wide offered to those who are labeled...
Diverse and varied fitting the needs of many...
...

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

I'm always inspired when people beat the odds, disability or not, or whatever it may be.

Susan Boyle's voice is amazing. I like what she did with the song.

And @aubie I'd never even heard of that group. I like their version, too.

A little music trivia. The original was recorded by the Stone on a trip to Alabama @ the famed Muscle Shoals Studio.

Good lord, it's a word. You don't have to use another term for it, just say it as it is.

It's Disability, not "different".

Again, you act like it's something to be censored. We don't need cutesy alternate terms, just use the actual words.

It's Diagnosis, not "label".

Clearly the point I was trying to make is lost on this forum. I don't even know why I'm surprised.
