Susan Boyle has fulfilled her dream of singing for the Pope.

The 49-year-old sang before and after the Papal mass at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow.

A huge cheer went up from the 65,000-strong crowd when the Britain's Got Talent star took to the stage ahead of the Pope's arrival.

Wearing a long black coat and heels, Susan sang the tune that catapulted her to fame, I Dreamed A Dream from the hit musical Les Miserables. Pilgrims waved flags in the air as she sang.

Following the mass she sang a rendition of the hymn Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace.

As she began performing, a girl from the crowd, shouted: "We love you Susan."

Susan, from Blackburn in West Lothian, rehearsed on Wednesday night.

Speaking about what the event meant to her, she said: "It's hard to describe it. It's hard to put into words, really. But it will be a very humbling experience, a very indescribable experience. It's beyond my imagination, beyond my wildest dreams."
