In just 18 months, Susan Boyle went from church volunteer to international singing superstar. Her show stopping Britain's Got Talent audition was just the beginning of her meteoric rise in music. Her debut CD, Dreamed a Dream, was the best-selling album in the world in 2009, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.
In the span of one year, Susan also got to meet two people she's always adored—her teenage crush - Donny Osmond and the Pope. She said, “He (Pope) is the leader of my faith. To sing for him is a pleasure and an honour."
The Talented singer shared the troubled stories of her growing up days where she was bullied persistently. She said, “[Bullies were] burning my clothes with a cigarette and stuff like that and trying to trip me up," she says. “It wasn't really human. I was being hit around the head." (Sic) This singer is not a onetime wonder. She is sure to stay and coming back with her new album, The Gift, which already has one million pre orders.
Watch Susan Boyle pulling off the biggest performance in the history of Oprah Shows, only on Big CBS Love on 21 September, 2011, at 8:00 PM.
