Her fourth studio album in three years, Standing Ovation, sees Susan Boyle and world acclaimed producer Biff Stannard join forces to present an album of songs from the golden era of film and stage that spans the generations. Featuring breathtaking renditions of "Send in the Clowns" and "Bring Him Home", Susan fearlessly takes on the iconic song "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" giving it a new identity.
Standing Ovation also showcases duets with her lifelong idol Donny Osmond and the 'Phantom' himself Michael Crawford. The album heralds a return to an era of much loved music for Susan Boyle, a lifelong fan of musicals. Her favourite songs from the golden age of film and theatre fused with her outstanding vocals from the ethereal to the dramatic, the music showcases the voice the world fell in love with.
Talking about her album Susan said; “I have been a fan of musicals since I was a wee girl. I love them and have enjoyed the drama and the range of emotions they inspire in you. I still remember the first time I saw Les Mis, my all time favourite. I fell in love with it and have seen it now countless times as each time you watch it you draw something different. Creating this album was a joy and came very naturally as I knew the songs and could identify with the characters in the studio. Recording with Donny on two songs was a dream come true. Working with him was awesome and I learned so much from him as a performer and a person. Being in the studio with him was without doubt the best day ever--it wasn’t work!”
Standing Ovation was produced by Biff Stannard in Glasgow and London. Stannard is a highly regarded producer who in the past has worked with Kylie Minogue, U2, Westlife and One Direction to name a few.

Now with the prominence of a top ranked seasoned professional, best-selling albums, and top of the chart success covering five continents in over twenty countries, once again she is destined to sing her way into the hearts of millions. Some may find it ironic knowing it all began with the song I Dreamed a Dream.
Susan Boyle's three earlier albums I Dreamed A Dream, The Gift & Someone To Watch Over Me are all popular, easy listening vocal albums loved by an constantly increasing fan base that spans the globe.
Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs From The Stage is the newest album by Susan Boyle, due to be released on November 13, 2012. Her newest release is a compilation of classic songs, and as the album subtitle suggests, are 11 favorite songs performed in the theater and some of the greatest movies ever produced.
One day prior to the release of her new album on November 13, 2012 Susan Boyle appeared on NBC's Today Show Concert Series, and performed the Abba cover song The Winner Takes It All. If you listened to her sing live for the first time it was a beautiful introduction.
For the millions of people who know her story and have listened to the soprano sing, simply discovering the remarkable talents of Susan Boyle has been the shared moment of victory uniting us all. Original publication from NewAgeMusicWorld.com.
Love that she achieved one of her dreams to sing with Donny Osmond.
I have a huge range of music that I love to listen to from 60's to modern: Adele/Emili Sande, country etc but it is equally as lovely to get a CD like Susan's as it is just a joy to listen to.
