Singer Susan Boyle won her audience from appearing on Britian‘s Got Talent. Although she did not win during her season, this runner-up did make her life long dream of becoming a singer a reality.

10-year-old opera phenom Jackie Evancho is also proving 2nd is the BEST! As Jackie was also runner-up in her season of America’s Got Talent.

1970s songstress Debby Boone also appears on the show. Oprah stated on the show, “Debbie still holds the record for most weeks at number one by a first-time primary female artist.”  The song is You Light Up My Life.

On the show they show a clip of Ms. Rowling’s Harvard commencement speech from 2008. If you have a some time to spare it is worth watching!

 

I found this interview to one of the best this season and I admit to never reading any of the Potter books. I found the conversation delightful and intelligent.  Thank you Oprah and JK Rowling!
