The Woman I Was Born to Be by Susan Boyle

Everybody knows her story.  A couple of years ago, if you weren't from Blackburn, a village in West Lothian, Scotland, you would never have heard of her.  In April, 2009, she was catapulted to global fame when the YouTube video of her audition for Britain's Got Talent touched the hearts of millions all over the world.

To this day, when I watch that video, it makes me cry.  That audience and those judges had prejudged Susan before she even opened her mouth...based solely on her looks.  But she wasn't there to be a model.  She was there to sing.  And when she opened her mouth and sang, she blew them all out of the water.  She showed them exactly what she was made of, and in the process held a mirror up to their snide judgmental attitude that showed them just how "ugly" they were.

This book tells the story of her life, how she was born to sing, the challenges she has struggled to overcome, and the astonishing transformation from humble village woman to international superstar.
