Overview

Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle was plucked from obscurity when she sang "I Dreamed A Dream" from the musical Les Miserables on TV's Britain's Got Talent earlier this year. The clip of her performance is one of YouTube's most watched videos, viewed by more than 300 million people.

The 48-year-old church volunteer was born and raised in Blackburn, Scotland and lives at home with her cat Pebbles. Susan has been singing since she was 12 years old and, before her appearance on Britain's Got Talent, regularly attended her local church to help out however she could. Needless to say, Susan's life has changed dramatically since the famed performance seen and heard around the world!

Her debut album, I Dreamed a Dream, features the stirring Les Miserables song that launched her meteoric career, as well as other pop favorites. From the Label

Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Stephen Holden
In the most striking cut Ms. Boyle turns the Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses” into a starkly beautiful declaration of tenacity and resolution. Her “Cry Me a River,” the least vengeful version I’ve heard, makes this gloating crow of emotional payback a reflection on cosmic balance.
Baltimore Sun - Sam Sessa
The song selection ("Daydream Believer," "Who I Was Born to Be," "Proud") suits Boyle's meteoric rise. And the sparse, simple production suits Boyle's classic-sounding voice.... The title track, which was the first number she sang on "Britain's Got Talent," still sends shivers down my spine.... I've never heard anyone do it better.
Blogcritics - Jaimie Krycho
I Dreamed a Dream — and Susan Boyle — is a definite keeper. The singer has already made an emotional connection with her audience that is invaluable to the effect of her album. Reflective and poignant, I Dreamed a Dream will please a wide range of listeners with Boyle’s undeniably beautiful voice accompanied by a message that her voice breathes life into.
