Susan Boyle became a star overnight when she appeared on Britain's Got Talent. Judges (including Simon Cowell) rolled their eyes when they first saw her step on stage, a homely looking 47 year old, but were amazed when they heard her opera style singing. She has now appeared on numerous talk shows and there is talk of her getting record deals.
Susan from Scotland says she is unemployed, has a cat, has never been married, and in fact has never even been kissed. She is the youngest of nine children, has always loved singing, and had formal training as a singer, but gave up hopes of a professional music career when she decided to care for her ill mother. Before she became famous, she was most often singing in her church choir and at a local Scottish hotel.
