In April 2009 a modest, middle-aged woman from a village in Scotland was catapulted to global fame when the YouTube video of her audition for Britains Got Talent touched the hearts of millions all over the world. From singing karaoke in local pubs to a live performance with an 80-piece orchestra in Japans legendary Budokan Arena, and a record-breaking debut album, Susan Boyle has become an international superstar.
This astonishing transformation has not always been easy for her as she is faced with all the trappings of celebrity, but in the whirlwind of attention and expectation, she has always found calm and clarity in music. Susan was born to sing. Now, for the first time, she tells the story of her life and the challenges she has struggled to overcome with faith, fortitude, and an unfailing sense of humor.
