Susan Boyle album The Gift goes to top of the charts

Susan Boyle got an early Christmas present yesterday, when her album The Gift shot to the top of the charts.

Her second No 1 album confirms the Britain’s Got Talent star as one of music’s most lucrative brands.

The Gift sold 102,993 copies in its first week, almost double the total of nearest contender Bon Jovi’s Greatest Hits collection.

Susan, 49, also stormed the US album charts and looks set to knock country singer Taylor Swift off the Billboard 100 top spot next week.

But despite a personal wealth expected to top £20million by the end of the year, Susan lives in a modest £300,000 four-bedroom home in Blackburn, West Lothian.

The singer’s first album, I Dreamed A Dream, has sold already nine million copies around the world.

Susan performed for the Pope on his visit to the UK and last week sang to Prince Charles at The Mirror’s Pride of Britain awards.
