Susan Boyle captured the hearts of music lovers around the world when she first appeared on the third season of “Britain’s Got Talent” over a decade ago.
The video of her first audition when she stood in front of Simon Cowell, shy and unassuming and then blew everyone away with her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables has been watched by millions.
She gained fame, as well as earned millions of dollars through album sales. However, her journey hasn’t all been sunshine and roses, and the singer’s love life has long been the subject of rumors and speculation.
So, did Susan Boyle ever marry? Does she have a partner? And where is she living now?
In 2008, the unemployed charity worker lived alone with her cat, Pebbles, and wanted to see if she could make it in show business. After performing I Dreamed a Dream from Les Misérables in front of Simon Cowell and the rest of Britain’s Got Talent judges, the 47-year-old became a star overnight.
The crazy underdog audition gained her instant recognition across the world. Even today, her journey is inspiring to millions.
“I used to be a kind of spectator looking outward at the world. But now I’m part of that world and, though frightening, I’m going to embrace it,” Boyle said after her breakthrough.
