The story behind the woman who went from obscurity to worldwide fame within a few days--a near-instant superstar Susan Boyle struggled at school and spent many years dreaming of being noticed at local talent shows; this book explains how the death of her mother and the strength of her faith finally gave Susan the courage to apply for "Britain''s Got Talent" in 2009. The rest, as they say, is history. Her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from" Les Miserables" captivated not only the British audience but audiences across the globe. Millions of fans logged in on YouTube and Twitter making Susan an overnight success. Susan''s debut album sold 701,000 copies in the United States its first week, the best opening week for a debut artist in more than a decade. "I Dreamed a Dream" also outsold the rest of the top five albums combined. In only a week, it sold more than two million copies worldwide. Here is the inside story of Susan''s rise to fame, and the effect it''s had on her life.
