Boyle Pope song dream comes true

Susan Boyle performs at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow

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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
