Beautiful and Inspiring

This clip always makes me cry as she sings so exquisitely. I get chills because it was one of my Mom’s favorite songs and became mine as well (after my Mom almost wore out the CD playing it over and over and over lol). When I was in high school, I was lucky enough to see Le Mis twice years on Broadway.

I think my favorite part, besides the beautiful performance itself, is the reaction from the audience and the judges. I laugh at Piers Morgan, Simon Cowell and the blonde chick getting knocked on their asses after they were all rolling their eyes and laughing at her. I think it’s the only time I’ve ever seen Simon shocked lol.

This teaches all of us to never judge a book by its cover or risk missing out on something truly beautiful and awe-inspiring.  Watching this lifts my spirit and reminds me that anything is possible in life, no matter what age you are. Never give up on your dreams!

Falling Slowly from Once
By GLEN HANSARD
(with Markéta Irglová)

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that

Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react

And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice

You’ve made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing it loud
