In the spring of 2009, Susan Boyle suddenly went from an ordinarily woman living in a Scottish village to a global superstar — and it all happened courtesy of “Britain’s Got Talent.” Susan’s audition video has been watched online over 100 million times, and her albums have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
With all this success in mind, Susan is certainly in a position to hand out advice — and she had this to say to prospective contestants in a new post on her Facebook page:
“My advice to those who have the ambition to perform is don’t bottle it up. Follow your dream and definitely do not give up. If you have a knock back you keep going, you have to show people that you have the determination to do it and if they see you’ve got that then you never know.
“What I would say to people is don’t be disheartened that’s them saying you may not be ok this time around but you’ve got to show your determination and come back and do it again and if they show their determination and stick to their gun’s then they’ll get what they want. After all it took me 23 years. For those in the live shows, just enjoy it, it’s a great experience- just do your very best.”
At times, Susan certainly had a tough journey on the show — the media was watching her every move constantly, and she was also having to deal with pressure of being a consensus favorite across the entire country. Although she didn’t end up winning, she certainly is a winner now — and her newest album, “Someone To Watch Over Me,” officially debuts in America on November 1.
Do you think this is some good advice via Susan?
