The Daily Record has uncovered the only CD ever made by Scotlands singing sensation Susan Boyle. She sings Cry Me A River.Susan became an overnight sensation on Britains Got Talent.
It emerged last night that Susan, whose Britains Got Talent triumph has made her an instant superstar, is being lined up for an appearance
on the Oprah Winfrey show which would give her the chance of a number one album in the US.

But the Record can reveal she made her first recording back in 1999, when she sang blues ballad Cry Me A River for a charity CD.

Only 1000 copies of the disc were ever produced, but weve got hold of the long-forgotten recording and its now on our site. A showbiz insider said: This is a real coup for the Record. The whole world would have wanted to find this.

People will be scrambling to get their hands on this CD. They will be like gold dust soon.
Susan, 48, of Blackburn, West Lothian, has gone from obscurity to worldwide fame in less than a week after her amazing Britains Got Talent debut.

So far, her performance of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables has attracted more than 16 MILLION hits on YouTube. And yesterday, she was doing the rounds of Americas top morning TV chat shows.

CBS superstar Diane Sawyer interviewed Susan for the Early Show. And Kathie Lee Gifford, host of NBCs Today Show, was so moved by her voice that she burst into tears.

Last night, it emerged that Susan has also been offered the chance to be a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show.

And BGT supremo Simon Cowell reckons that if the appearance goes ahead, it will guarantee that her debut album will top the charts in the States.

Its all a far cry from 1999, when Susan recorded her track for the charity compilation CD at Whitburn Academy, where X Factor winner Leon Jackson went to school.

The Millennium Celebration disc, which was partly funded by Whitburn Community Council, was the brainchild of local newspaper editor Eddie Anderson.

He launched a search for unsigned acts to take part. And as soon as he heard Susan at the auditions he knew he had found something special.

I was amazed when she sang, Eddie said. It was probably the same reaction as everyone had last Saturday.

Susan was exactly the same then as she is now. She has a fabulous and unique talent.

When Susan walked on to the Britains Got Talent stage, the judges and audience seemed more interested in her appearance than her voice.

Simon, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden rolled their eyes and raised their eyebrows when she told them she wanted to be a Broadway superstar like Elaine Paige.

But their scorn quickly turned to amazement when she started to sing.

Simon grinned as he admitted that Susans voice was extraordinary. Piers told her: I am giving you the biggest yes I have ever given to anybody.

And Amanda added: It was a privilege to listen to you.

In the days that followed, Susan became a YouTube sensation.
(Susan, you have captured the hearts of the world....Swifttallon.)

Susan is already a smash hit in the States. What a lovely woman with a unique talent. I'm so glad her "feet are firmly planted on the ground" and wish her great success. I know there will be a certain "makeover" but as long as that lovely voice comes through, she'll be fine. Note to self: Do not wear mascara when listening to Susan, it does create a makeup mess. Good luck Susan, you are wonderful.

This is Susan Boyle singing Cry Me a River by Diana Drall from a 1999 recording she did for a charity album.

Susan Boyle Cry Me a River Lyrics:

Now you say you're lonely
You cry the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember, all that you said?
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and

Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river...over you...
