Producer Mackintosh "Gob-Smacked" By Boyle's "I Dreamed a Dream"; Song Is YouTube Hit
By Mark Shenton
The rendition of Les Misérables' "I Dreamed a Dream," performed on the U.K. weekly ITV Channel TV show "Britain's Got Talent" by unemployed singer Susan Boyle, has turned the song into a hit tune all over again.
In a press statement, producer Cameron Mackintosh has echoed the comments of judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden, saying, "Just like the judges and audience I was gob-smacked by the emotional powerhouse performance of Susan Boyle's show stopping rendition of 'I Dreamed a Dream.' Vocally it is one of the best versions of the song I've ever heard. Touching, thrilling and uplifting. I do hope she gets to sing it for the Queen."
