London (ANI): Britain"s Got Talent star Susan Boyle has created
history after her second album stormed the US and UK charts. The
singing sensation has become the first solo artist to have two No 1
albums in UK and in America within 12 months. She broke the record
when new collection 'The Gift" was released this week.
It means the 49-year-old spinster will be in the history books
with The Monkees and The Beatles – the only other British act to
pull off the feat. “I"ve never felt happier in my life. This is an
amazing result and one I never expected," the Daily Star quoted
Susan as saying.
BGT boss Simon Cowell, 51, said, “I"m thrilled for Susan, she
has once again defied the odds." Susan"s follow-up to monster hit
'I Dreamed A Dream" also took top spot in New Zealand and Holland,
selling more than a million copies already.
Steve Barnett, from Susan"s label Columbia Records, said, “The
overwhelming positive response to Susan"s new album is a powerful
testament to her unique talent." He added, “She is able to touch
the hearts of her fans around the world, who continue to show their
loyal support and devotion."
