Fantine in Her Forties?

I think I've mentioned a couple of times that I'm a huge Les Miz nut. One of the songs from the musical I really love listening to (one of many) is "I Dreamed a Dream". If I'm not mistaken, this is Husband's favorite (yes, he spent months watching the TAC with me while I was absolutely rabid about it, still love it to death, but the obsession has been toned down a smidge). Anyway, I've been seeing Susan Boyle's rendition of the song on CNN and Fox (If you must know, I prefer Fox), but didn't do anything except to text a couple of co-Les Miz lovers if they'd seen it. But now, as a true Les Miz fan, I feel compelled to post about it. I've heard versions of Ruthie Henshall, Patti Lupone, Randy Graff, Lea Salonga (although she was Eponine instead of Fantine really, but she sang it in concert) and a slew of others who star in their YouTube channels lol, but I say Susan Boyle is at par with the great ones. Anyway, Susan is saved from having to wear the blond cornrows wig that Fantines wear (this is better than the mullet wig that Mariuses wear at least, lol). I was going to embed a video here, but embedding has been disabled for most of the videos available on YouTube. Oh well.
