Susan Boyle to sing for Charles

Susan Boyle is set to sing in front of the Prince of Wales after missing out on the chance to do so a year ago.

SuBo, 49, will perform her version of Lou Reed's Perfect Day for the Prince and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, at the Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards next Monday.

"It's going to be a real privilege to be performing before His Royal Highness the Prince Of Wales," she said.

"It's going to be a great night. I can't wait to be there."

Susan, who sang for the Pope during his recent British visit, missed out on the opportunity to perform for Charles at the Royal Variety Performance a year ago. The honour instead went to Essex dance troupe Diversity, who took first prize on ITV1's Britain's Got Talent show.

Boyle, who was runner-up, achieved global fame on the show for her version of I Dreamed A Dream, from Les Miserables. The performance was seen by 2.5 million YouTube viewers within 72 hours.

She was banned from singing Perfect Day on US TV show American Idol by Reed a month ago, but there is no problem with her singing it in Britain because of different copyright laws.

At the Pride of Britain awards, Susan will be joined by more than 100 other stars, including TV talent show judges Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole.

The awards will be viewed by millions of viewers when they are broadcast on ITV on November 10.
