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

Aries:

This isn't a good time to gamble. Even if an investment seems like a sure thing, it could undermine your financial security. Keep your money safe in the bank. If a loved one is clamouring to make a big purchase, sit down together and review your bank account. Once your partner sees the truth of the situation, they'll feel less compelled to splash out on luxuries. This shortage will be temporary, as long as you exercise restraint during lean times. Getting into serious debt will make a tough situation worse.More
