Susan Boyle won the hearts of music fans worldwide when she appeared on the third season of “Britain’s Got Talent” more than ten years ago.
In her first audition, she stood in front of Simon Cowell, shy and unassuming. But when she sang “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables, she amazed everyone. The video of that audition has been seen by millions.
Since then, Susan became famous and made millions of dollars from her albums. But her journey has had challenges, and there have been rumors and speculation about her love life.
So, did Susan Boyle get married? Does she have a partner? And where is she living now?
As Susan Boyle has grown older, it’s natural for her to reflect on her life. Back in 2008, she was an unemployed charity worker living alone with her cat, Pebbles. She wanted to try her luck in show business, and when she sang “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables in front of Simon Cowell and other judges on Britain’s Got Talent, she became an overnight star at the age of 47.
Her unexpected and incredible audition made her famous worldwide. Even today, her journey continues to inspire millions.
“I used to be someone who watched the world from the sidelines. But now, I’m a part of that world, and although it can be scary, I’m going to embrace it,” Boyle said after her breakthrough.
In her first year as a superstar, Susan Boyle earned $6.8 million. She used some of that money to remodel her childhood home, and she’s given people a peek inside.
Susan’s success didn’t stop there. After releasing her second studio album, she became the third artist to top the charts in both the UK and the US twice in the same year.
Overnight, this shy 47-year-old from Scotland became a worldwide superstar and a millionaire.
Even though her career made her travel the world and earn millions, Susan Boyle has always stayed honest, down-to-earth, and genuinely caring.
Unlike many other famous people, she hasn’t shown off her money. The humble singer still lives in her childhood home in Blackburn, Scotland. She bought the modest house in 2010.
“It’s good to stay connected to your roots. It keeps you down-to-earth and helps you avoid saying things you shouldn’t say,” Susan Boyle shared with OK!.
Susan was born on April 1, 1961. Her parents, Patrick and Bridget, were immigrants from County Donegal, Ireland. Patrick was a miner, a WWII veteran, and a singer, while Bridget was a shorthand typist. Susan grew up as the youngest of four brothers and six sisters.
The Boyle family lived in a council house in West Lothian, Scotland. And even today, Susan still lives in that same house.
Susan Boyle had many choices. She could have done anything, gone anywhere, and bought a big house in Beverly Hills. But instead, she decided to come back to her childhood home in Blackburn, Scotland. It’s a four-bedroom house that used to be a council house. She bought it and transformed it into the home of her dreams.
In a tour of her newly decorated home, where she’s lived for 60 years, she shows off her beautiful new piano room, which is the first thing you see when you enter her house.
Susan jokes about the piano room, saying she’s just started taking lessons. “It’s funny because I can’t even do scales,” she said with a laugh.
Susan has always been honest about wanting to meet the love of her life and find a long-term partner. When she does find that special someone, they’ll move into her house because Susan has no plans to leave.
While she patiently waits to meet “Mr. Right,” there’s something else that’s been on Susan’s mind for a while. She has always dreamed of being a mother and having children of her own.
