Susan Boyle told fans she was “overwhelmed” by their turnout as she signed copies of her new album in the city where she first shot to stardom.
The 51-year-old singer posed for pictures and spoke to more than 100 fans who had queued outside HMV in Glasgow to meet her and collect copies of Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs from the Stage.
Susan came to the nation’s attention when her performance at a Britain’s Got Talent audition was broadcast in 2009. Her debut album went on to become the UK`s biggest selling debut of all time.
Fan Maureen McGeorge queued for an hour to meet the singer and was “very, very excited”.
She said: “Not that I haven`t seen Susan before, I`m a big fan but it`s always exciting to meet her, she`s wonderful.
“When I went up to her she said ‘there`s a face I know’ she gets to know her fans and she`s very good with them and gives it the personal touch, I just love her to bits.
“I got four copies of the new album, three for friends in America who are big fans and one for me, obviously.”
The album contains a number of duets and Ms McGeorge is particularly fond of Susan’s pairing with her idol.
“My favourites are the songs with Donny Osmond because I think you can tell how much Susan enjoys it. She`s said before he`s her lifelong idol and I think we all still love Donny.”
