Susan Boyle to sing for Prince Charles
Reality television sensation Susan Boyle said Tuesday she will sing in front of Britain's Prince Charles, weeks after performing for the pope when he visited Scotland.
The 49-year-old performer, who shot to global fame after dazzling judges on television show Britain's Got Talent, will sing her version of Lou Reed's "Perfect Day" at the Pride of Britain charity show in London next Monday.
"It's going to be a real privilege to be performing before His Royal Highness the Prince Of Wales," the singer said.
"It's going to be a great night. I can't wait to be there."
The worldwide number-one selling artist missed out on playing before Queen Elizabeth II at last year's Royal Variety Performance after only finishing runner-up to dance group Diversity on the British talent show.
American rocker Reed banned Boyle from performing his song on US TV show American Idol, but British copyright laws will allow her to perform the classic hit in front of the prince and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
Other performers at the event include X Factor judge Simon Cowell and Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole, also a judge on the programme.
Boyle, a devoted Catholic, sang for Pope Benedict XVI in Glasgow during his state visit to Britain in September.
