For years ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ has attracted TV audiences of millions. The little office girl would appear onstage alongside compare Matthew Kelly who would ask her who she was about to impersonate. ‘Tonight Maffue’ she’d say ‘I’m gonna be Madonna' Lights dimmed -lights up, and there she stood in a pointy bra and a corset singing, though not acting, Like a Virgin!
And so they came and went – lorry driver Michael Jackson and postman John Travolta!
A few weeks ago, a young man named Simon came on in a wheelchair. He explained to Matthew that a year ago he had been in a serious car accident. He was travelling with his uncle John who was unfortunately killed. Simon lost both his legs. He went on to say that thanks to the miracle of medical science he had been able to have his deceased uncles legs grafted on himself and soon he hoped to walk again.
The lights went down, there was a roll on the drums, and Matthew asked him who he was going to be. ‘Tonight Matthew’ he said ‘I’m going to be Simon and Half-uncle’!
And if you believe that you’ll believe anything . Anyway here's an example of what we have to endure

do you see?
do you feel?
do you savour?
do you hear?
do you live?
