Susan Boyle: I might try jazz

Susan Boyle

Susan Boyle would love to put a Billie Holiday number on her next album.

The Scottish singer rose to fame after appearing on TV show Britain's Got Talent and has gone on to have great success with her powerful voice.

Whereas the 51-year-old is famed for her ballads, Susan would like to try out some new genres.

"I would love to do a bit of jazz music," she confessed to the British edition of OK!

"Maybe for the next album? We will have to wait and see. It's something I've always been thinking about, but I keep putting the idea aside. I like to vary my sound. I really like Ella Fitzgerald. My favourite jazz song is God Bless The Child [by Billie Holiday]. Maybe I could do that."

The star recently released latest album Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs from the Stage, which includes classics such as Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Memory.

For Susan, fame came suddenly and unexpectedly but she says she will always stay true to herself.

"I would never be a diva," she exclaimed. "That would be unfair on other people. I always just go with the flow!"

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
