Susan Boyle will debut her solo album "I Dreamed a Dream" on QVC on November 4th. The QVC release will feature a special bonus DVD of rare footage. "I Dream a Dream" will be available in regular retail stores on Nov. 24th. The debut will feature Boyle's take on classics ranging from the Rolling Stones to The Monkees to Madonna.
I Dreamed a Dream also includes her signature songs, "I Dreamed a Dream" and "Cry Me a River," as well as renditions of the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses," Madonna's "You'll See," The Monkees' ‘Daydream Believer,' and "Who I Was Born To Be," an original recording written specially for Susan Boyle.
Amateur vocalist Susan Boyle became an overnight sensation after appearing on the first round of 2009's popular U.K. reality show Britain's Got Talent. Boyle, who was born in Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland in 1961, caught the judges (and the world) off guard with her masterful rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical Les Misérables, due in part to the unemployed and undeniably plain church volunteer's "salt of the earth" demeanor and country spinster backstory.
Amazon.com, Inc. recently announced that Susan Boyle's upcoming album, "I Dreamed a Dream," has become the largest CD pre-order in the history of the Amazon.com Music Store. The album, "I Dreamed a Dream," will be released from Sony Music Entertainment on Nov. 23. Boyle became a reality show and Internet star after her April 11, 2009, appearance on the television show "Britain's Got Talent," where she sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from "Les Misérables."
