STAGE TUBE: Susan Boyle Sings 'Cry Me a River' on NBC's Today Show
Susan Boyle appeared on the Today Show on Monday, November 23, 2009 in New York's Rockefeller Plaza to sing to promote her debut album I Dreamed a Dream which is being released this week. The show was Susan's first public performance in the USA.
"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.
