Susan Boyle Hopes for GaGa Collaboration
Susan Boyle, of 'Britain's Got Talent' mega-fame, has expressed interest in collaborating with Lady Gaga, contactmusic.com reports. In reference to Lady Gaga's Telephone music video, say Boyle, "I think Lady Gaga is a wonderful artist and completely original and I like her costumes. Love it! Yes, I'd love to do a duet with her, complete with telephone hat too!"
It seems the feeling may be mutual. At the end of 2009, Lady Gaga praised Boyle saying, "I love Susan Boyle. She is my woman of the year. She has achieved more in this year than most artists will in a lifetime...This time last year nobody even knew who she was and now she is knocking the world's most established artists off the album and singles charts."
On the possibility of a potential SuBo/GaGa collaboration, the star said, "Our styles are different. I don't know if we could work together, but never say never. It would be great to work with somebody of that talent."
Boyle's aspirations do not stop with Gaga. She hopes to one day have the chance to sing for the Pope, as well. She tell's Britain's Daily Mirror: "The Pope is a very special person and singing for him within the Mass, it's not just for him, it's for everybody."
Boyle's debut album, I Dreamed a Dream, premiered at number 1 on the charts, remained at number 1 in it's second and third weeks and has also received RIAA-Triple Platinum Certification for shipping over three million units to retailers nationwide. 'I Dreamed A Dream' continues to break records by becoming the biggest selling album released in 2009. Also as previously reported, "I Dreamed A Dream: The Susan Boyle Story," which premiered exclusively on TV Guide Network on Sunday, December 13 became its #1 rated television special in history. YouTube additionally announced last week that Susan Boyle's I Dreamed A Dream performance from Britain's Got Talent is their most watched video of 2009.
After an audition for "Britain's Got Talent," in which Susan immediately impressed the judges, the audience and then anyone with access to YouTube's expectations by singing her way through a version of "I Dreamed A Dream" from Les Miserables. A tornado of rumination and amazement grew around Susan Boyle feverishly, with over 300 Million YouTube hits and nearly two million Facebook friends to prove it.
'I Dreamed A Dream' was recorded during the summer of 2009. Susan first entered a recording studio in July in Edinburgh, 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," an original recording written especially for Susan.
