Here’s a current update on Lin Yu Chun:

Young singer Lin Yu Chun wowed audiences around the world this week with his rendition of “I Will Always Love You.” Already, he’s being called “the next Susan Boyle” because, like the Britain’s Got Talent sensation, his decidedly un-rock star appearance belies an impressive set of pipes.

The 24-year-old blew the judges away during his audition for the Taiwanese, American Idol-esque talent show Super Star Avenue . The show’s grand prize is 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.”

And to those of us watching and criticizing, this latest YouTube viral hit serves as a further reminder to not judge a book by its cover — or its weight, bow tie and bowl haircut.
