Viral sensation Susan Boyle will release an album of stage and film songs with guest spots from Donny Osmond and Michael Crawford.
The album, Standing Ovation, is her fourth in three years, capitalising on the breakout viral success of her Britain’s Got Talent. Her debut album is 10-times platinum in Australia, The Gift triple-platinum and last year’s Someone To Watch Over Me is double-platinum
She says of Standing Ovation, “I have been a fan of musicals since I was a wee girl. I love them and have enjoyed the drama and the range of emotions they inspire in you. I still remember the first time I saw Les Mis, my all-time favourite. I fell in love with it and have seen it now countless times as each time you watch it you draw something different.”
Sixties teen idol Donny Osmond joins her on ‘All I Ask Of You’ and ‘This Is The Moment’, and the original Phantom, Michael Crawford, helps out on ‘The Music Of The Night’.
She continues, “Creating this album was a joy and came very naturally as I knew the songs and could identify with the characters in the studio. Recording with Donny on two songs was a dream come true. Working with him was awesome and I learned so much from him as a performer and a person. Being in the studio with him was without doubt the best day ever- it wasn’t work!”
Standing Ovation will be released on November 16 through Sony. Check out the tracklist below.
