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."

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
