Featuring the Rock Choir
Susan Boyle has released a new duet with British musical legend, Michael Ball, OBE. The chart-topping Ball, who began his career in “Les Miserables,” has joined forces with the Scottish phenomenon who started her career on “BGT” with the now-iconic rendition of the “Les Miserables” song "I Dreamed A Dream.”
The lead track, “A Million Dreams,” from “The Greatest Showman,” is available to buy and stream today, along with a brand-new video documenting the recording of the track. Members of the Rock Choir, the U.K.’s largest choir with over 25,000 members, joined Boyle and Ball. Recording at Angel Studios, London, 80 “Rockies” from the Midlands took part.
Talking about the duet, Boyle said, “It’s been a wish of mine to meet Michael Ball, so to have the opportunity to perform with him was wonderful. He’s such a lovely man, so talented and has a velvety voice. I got my wish to work with him and even got to sit on his knee! I can’t wait for people to watch us perform this track on TV; it’s coming, watch this space.”
Ball added, “Susan is a unique and special talent. I love the way our voices blend on this record, and it was a total joy to be a part of it. The Rock Choir, of course, were magnificent. It was wonderful to talk to them and hear how Susan had inspired them to follow their dream and sing. I think this is a special record.”
Caroline Redman, founder of the Rock Choir, said, “I am so thrilled that the Rock Choir members were invited to sing on Susan’s album. This moment was very special for us all. I’m very proud we were approached and especially that The Midlands Rock Choir members got the chance to record at the iconic Angel Studios in London.”
2019 has already seen Boyle step back into the public eye when she performed her iconic rendition of “Wild Horses” on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” In April, she celebrated 10 years by returning to the “Britain’s Got Talent Stage,” performing the song that started it all, “I Dreamed A Dream.”
