She dreamed a dream, and it’s about to come true. Susan Boyle is to continue her remarkable rise from obscurity to international superstardom by becoming the first British artist to record a posthumous duet with Elvis Presley.

The King of Rock ’n’ Roll and the Scottish singing phenomenon known as ‘SuBo’ will be heard together on O Come, All Ye Faithful. It is the first track of Boyle’s forthcoming album, Home For Christmas, which will be released in November. Boyle, 52, was granted permission to use recordings of Presley by his Graceland estate earlier this year.

She joins an exclusive list of singers, including Celine Dion, who have been allowed to posthumously duet with him.
