Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle says it's a dream come true


Susan Boyle is to sing for Pope Benedict XVI next month.

The Britain’s Got Talent star will perform at an open-air mass in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, on 16 September.

‘To be able to sing for the Pope is a great honour and something I’ve always dreamed of – it’s indescribable,’ says Susan, 49.

‘My faith is the backbone of my life, I pray and say the rosary each day and am very close to my religion. I am humbled and honoured by this invitation and I hope I can do my best.’

Susan will perform 3 times during the event.

She will sing I Dreamed A Dream and the hymn How Great Thou Art to kick off the event, join an 800-strong choir during the mass and perform a farewell solo song to bring the service to an end.
