Things are not always as they appear

There are some things in life that surprise us in their incongruity. From an unassuming caterpillar's cacoon springs a butterfly, from a brown shriveled bulb springs a beautiful flower, and from a 47 year old Brittish woman, comes this:

We are often quick to judge based upon appearances. The woman in the video that I linked to, appears ordinary, perhaps even frumpy, but her voice is anything but ordinary.

I am not one to watch reality TV, and this was aired in Great Britain, so I would not have seen it anyway, but in this case, I believe that a reality show did a great service for society by reminding us that many times, our first impressions are far from accurate.
