Susan Boyle is not only dreaming the dream, she’s continuing to live it. Along with a hit album, the Scottish singer is gearing up to sing a duet with opera legend Andrea Bocelli.
When they perform together, they are expected to duet on one of Grammy-nominated Andrea’s most famous songs, either “Time To Say Goodbye,” which he famously performed with Sarah Brightman, or “The Prayer,” which he sang with Celine Dion.
Susan shot to fame earlier this year when she appeared on British TV show “Britain’s Got Talent.” She finished second (can you remember who finished first?) but swept the world with her rendition of the song “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables.
Since releasing her award-winning album, Susan has already fulfilled her lifelong dream of performing alongside musical legend Elaine Paige.
Boyle’s debut album I Dreamed a Dream is the fastest-selling ever released by a woman. Boyle’s record is so popular she’s even topped Bocelli on US album charts. The blind tenor’s latest album is My Christmas.
But the music she produces with the Italian operatic legend for a new TV talent show is likely to top even that.
The pair will join together for upcoming UK television show “Pop Star to Opera Star,” where pop musicians will compete against each other by singing classical arias.
“Susan has held Andrea off the top of the US charts for weeks; it’s incredible. But he holds no grudges, he joked that he ‘must sing with this amazing woman,’ ” the UK’s The Sun newspaper reported.
