The Last Susan Boyle Post, I Promise–But It Turns Out She Can Cry a Digital River


The Internet sensation that is Susan Boyle just keeps getting better.

The Daily Record in Scotland uncovered a 10-year-old recording that the 47-year-old woman made for a charity CD.

She has since become a viral hit on the Internet for her performance, with the online video of it now hitting 30 million views (doubled last week).

Here is the video of Boyle singing “Cry Me a River”:
