It's a Standing O for SuBo!
Syco/Columbia Records recording star Susan Boyle, who has reached international stardom and sold over 18 million albums in three years, will be releasing her fourth album, Standing Ovation , on Tuesday, November 13.
Featuring breathtaking renditions of "Send in the Clowns," "Bring Him Home" and "The Winner Takes It All," Susan fearlessly takes on the iconic song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" giving it a new identity.
Standing Ovation also showcases duets with her lifelong idol Donny Osmond and the "Phantom" himself, Michael Crawford. One of the selections, "Memory" from the musical Cats, will be familiar to her fans – it's the song Susan sang in the semi-final round of Britain's Got Talent in 2009.
SuBo said, "I have been a fan of musicals since I was a wee girl. I love them and have enjoyed the drama and the range of emotions they inspire in you. I still remember the first time I saw Les Mis, my all time favorite. I fell in love with it and have seen it now countless times as each time you watch it you draw something different. Creating this album was a joy and came very naturally as I knew the songs and could identify with the characters in the studio. Recording with Donny on two songs was a dream come true. Working with him was awesome and I learned so much from him as a performer and a person. Being in the studio with him was without doubt the best day ever- it wasn't work!"
Donny Osmond said, "I remember watching Susan's debut on Britain's Got Talent. I had the same reaction Simon Cowell and the rest of the world had: Susan has the voice of an angel. I consider it an honor that she asked me to be featured on her album."
