SuBo picks amateur singer for duet

Susan Boyle has chosen an amateur singer to duet with her

Susan Boyle has plucked an amateur American singer from obscurity and offered her the chance to record a duet with her.

The Scottish singer, who became an international star after appearing on Britain's Got Talent, picked American mother-of-three Amber Stassi from thousands of entrants in an online talent contest dubbed Susan's Search.

SuBo, who called Stassi at home in New York to break the news, said: "I really wanted to give someone the opportunity I had.

"Amber is a remarkable and talented lady and I am really looking forward to singing with her."

The pair will record a duet for SuBo's forthcoming album The Gift.

Stassi, 33, who works as a paramedic, said: "We have had some hard times, if my father was here now he would be so proud, I know he's here in spirit, but this is a chance to give my kids a good memory and maybe a chance at a better life."

Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
