We now know Susan Boyle as an incredible singer but until Britain’s Got Talent, she lives a difficult life. As a child, she was bullied and told she had a learning disability. As she grew up, she realized that wasn’t the case. In fact, she had a high IQ and a natural talent for singing that she was itching to hone.
It seemed as though the world was against her, but Boyle persisted in chasing her dreams. BGT gave her fame and fortune but it also brought about family feuds and public drama. Susan Boyle’s life is anything but ordinary.
She Had A Rough Start At Life
Born in Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland, Susan Boyle was the youngest of five children. Her mother Bridget was 45 years old when she gave birth to her. Soon they noticed that there was something different about the way Boyle learned. Her family told her it was because she had been deprived of oxygen at birth.
Boyle told the Telegraph, “I like to see myself as someone with a problem, but one I can solve. It is definitely getting better.”
