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

Scorpio:

You have to make some personal sacrifices to achieve career success. If you're going to lead a team to victory, you will have to be hard on the less industrious members of the group. As a result, you won't be terribly popular. Many will complain about your methods, but nobody can argue with the results of your work. You know how to get the best performance from the people around you. That's a rare quality that should be championed. You should be gentler with people in your private life.More
