Why Does This Make Me Cry?

Everyone probably already knows by now I love to watch American Idol. I'm also sure everyone has seen the Britain's Got Talent version on the news over the last few days of the contestant Susan Boyle. If you haven't you really should go to and watch it. It is an amazing video and every time I watch, I cry.

Why does watching this video immediately bring tears to my eyes?

Did it bring tears to your eyes?
