Just weeks ago Susan Boyle was an unknown church volunteer, living alone in West Lothian with her cat Pebbles in the home where she grew up with her eight brothers and sisters. Since the moment the 48-year-old began to sing on Britain's Got Talent, however, her life has been transformed, with Hollywood names touting her talent and US TV crews camping on her doorstep.
In this week's HELLO!, issue number 1069, there's an exclusive interview with the Scottish singing sensation. In it she reveals how she's coping with global fame since the video clip of her audition was picked up by the international press, racking up an incredible 100 million hits on YouTube.
"I could never have imagined anything on this scale," says the middle-aged singer, whose fans include Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher "It's definitely a dream come true."
Don't miss the chance to read Susan's incredible story – how she found comfort and refuge in her voice to overcome problems at school and how she is determined to pursue her dream of becoming a professional singer in memory of her mother, who passed away two years ago.
