"What I was born to be" is an original composition specifically written for Susan Boyle by American Singer-songwriter, Audra Mae, in collaboration with Play Production, a little known Swedish songwriting and production trio. Play Production composed the music while Audra Mae wrote the lyrics. In preparation for the work, Audra Mae researched the life story of the Scottish singer and hence the song is biographical in nature. In "her" song, Susan Boyle tells of her vocal gift as a child, her failure as a struggling artist, and now that success is finally bestowed on her, she is ready to face the world with open arms and soar. Accompanied by a beautiful tune at the piano and supported by a chorus and an orchestra, this song showcases the full vocal range of the talented Susan Boyle. Credit must also be given to the LJ singers, a gospel group led by Lawrence Johnson, who sings the chorus in the final verse.

One might want to take note of the lyricist and the composer of this song. Audra Mae, a budding singer-songwriter, was born in Oklahoma in 1985, grand niece of Judy Garland. In October 2009, Audra Mae released a 5-song digital EP, Haunt, produced by SideOne Dummy Records. A full-length debut album is said to be due in March 2010. There is scant information on "Play Production", but I think they are Norell Oson Bard, a Swedish songwriting and production trio made up of Tim Norell, Ola Håkansson and Alexander Bard. Their work mainly consists of pop & disco music for Swedish artists.

I bought Susan's first album and this song was the one which I play time and time again and sometimes leave it on repeat.
