Susan Boyle may sing for the Pope

She dreamed a dream, but did heavenly-voiced Susan Boyle ever dream she’d be singing for the Pope?

It could happen! The 49-year-old former church worker and "Britain’s Got Talent" sensation is currently in talks to perform for Pope Benedict XVI during his trip to the U.K. in the fall.

“We are negotiating with Susan Boyle and her agent at the moment for Susan to sing for the Pope when he visits the UK in September,” the Catholic Church in Scotland confirmed to CNN.

According to the Daily Mail, Scotland native Boyle would likely sing at the September 16 Papal Mass at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park. Hopefully, the Pope won’t be as harsh a critic as Boyle’s "Britain’s Got Talent" judge Simon Cowell.

I mean I just read during the entire article of yours and it was quite fine but as I'm really a visual learner,I discovered that being more valuable. Just my my idea, Good luck

    She'll sing for the Pope.
    She'll sing for Bond.
    And she'll likely sing for the Olympics. Unlike many other singers, Boyle, evidently, is best heard live.

    A wonderful voice. To spend it on a child terrorist as this pope is such a waste.

    Susan is awesome and with one of the most beautiful and certainly most angelic of voices in the world. The perfect choice to sing for the pope and this massive audience. Susan's voice is filled with Love and inspiration.
