Susan Boyle To Celebrate Anniversary on Oprah
On Oprah, Boyle will perform "Who I Was Born To Be," an original recording that was written especially for Susan and appeared on her multi-platinum debut 'I Dreamed A Dream' (Columbia Records). She'll also discuss her whirlwind success – dubbed "Boylemania" by Entertainment Weekly.
"Astounding and humbling," says Boyle of her success with 'I Dreamed A Dream.' The album monopolized the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 for six consecutive weeks, broke numerous Soundscan records, and has sold over 8 million copies worldwide.
'I Dreamed A Dream' was recorded during the summer of 2009. Boyle first entered a recording studio in July in London, picking songs that resonated with her. The final results shocked both her and veteran producer Steve Mac with its beauty and musical impact. "It was important that I could feel everything I was singing," she says. The 12 track collection features Susan Boyle performing signature songs such as "I Dreamed A Dream", "Cry Me A River," as well as her haunting rendition of The Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses," Madonna's "You'll See," The Monkees' "Daydream Believer," and "Who I Was Born To Be."
