She dreamed a dream, and now Susan Boyle says she wants to make someone else’s dream come true.
The Scottish singer is searching for an unknown to duet with her on her upcoming album, “The Gift.”
Aspirants can upload videos of themselves singing “Silent Night” to Boyle’s website (www.susanboyle
music.com) and her YouTube channel. The competition closes July 23, with a winner announced
Boyle, 49, became an overnight sensation last year after her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” on the TV show “Britain’s Got Talent” was viewed millions of times on the Internet. Her debut album has sold more than 9 million copies.
Boyle said that her sudden fame has “been a real gift to me and now I would like to pass on the gift to someone else.”
Gibson rant just the beginning
The two-minute clip of Mel Gibson using a racial slur and calling his ex-girlfriend a “whore” during an argument are unlikely to be the last ugly words the public hears from the actor.
RadarOnline.com, the celebrity website that posted the recording, says there’s more where that came from.
For 10 days, the site has posted written transcripts of secret recordings it said Gibson’s former girlfriend, Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva, had made. The snippet released is the first audio of the confrontations that have been aired.
The clip includes segments in which a voice that sounds distinctly like the Academy Award winner is heard telling Grigorieva that she is dressing too provocatively and that it would be her fault if she were raped. The recording is laced with his profanity.
Shortly after the posting, entertainment news outlets reported that Gibson had been dropped by talent agency William Morris Endeavor, although that decision appeared to have been made days ago.
