London, Dec 14 (IANS) Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle was surprised with an early Christmas gift on British TV as she received a platinum record for her history-making album sales.
The spinster skyrocketed to fame after appearing on music reality show “Britain’s Got Talent” earlier this year and fans around the world have since proved their love for the 48 year old by snapping up thousands of copies of her debut album, “I Dreamed a Dream”.
The record-breaking disc has sold more than five million worldwide since its release in November, topping the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the US and Britain, reports contactmusic.com
Her life-changing year was celebrated in style as she was handed a triple platinum record during her own TV special, “I Dreamed A Dream: The Susan Boyle Story”, prompting her to break down in tears as she clutched the prize.
“To celebrate you, we’d like to give you a little treat, a little surprise. In recognition of your astonishing achievement in selling over one million records, here is the triple platinum record,” journalist Piers Morgan, a judge on “Britain’s Got Talent” told Boyle.
“Very few artists in history have done this. Susan Boyle, you dreamed a dream - this is your dream come true,” he added.
