The Next ‘Susan Boyle’

The song, “I Will Always Love You.” The voice, 24-year old Lin Yu Chun.

He’s already being called “the next Susan Boyle” because, like the Britain’s Got Talent sensation, his non-traditional rock star appearance  is overlooked when he opens his mouth and starts singing.

Taiwan has their own American Idol style talent show called Super Star Avenue. Young Chun wowed the judges and looks to be a contender for the show’s grand prize of a record deal and $1 million.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Chun revealed that his appearance is what drove him to pursue music. “Being fat draws a lot of mockery in our society,” Chun said, who suffered from low self-esteem and would spend hours alone in his room, listening to pop divas such as Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. After his performance, Chun said he’d gained more confidence as a vocalist. “You don’t have to be a good-looking man or woman to succeed,” he said. “Just be yourself and try your best.”

Check him out. He got a little bit of the Whitney Houston tone in his voice – that’s not a knock, that’s a compliment !!
