Everyone loves the world of music.

See, when you’re a fan, you’re bound to do a little bit of research here and there to figure out where your favorite celebrity came from, right? Right!

It’s always good to know more about someone you look up to as an idol, and for those who love Susan Boyle and her music, you’re in for a treat!

Today is Susan’s birthday — she is responsible for giving her fans music and renditions that you can listen to over and over again.

Ever since her first appearance on “Britain’s Got Talent,” the talented singer took the music industry by storm.

Not only did she take the stage and wow the judges, but she also made a revelation that, surprisingly, a lot of people could relate to — she admitted that she was 48-years-old and had never been kissed in her life. She won over so many hearts that day and continued to weave her magic even after her departure from the show.

But, where does Susan come from? If you ponder on that question, then here’s some background information on everyone’s favorite “Britain’s Got Talent” contestant.

Susan was born and raised in Blackburn, West Lothian. She was the youngest of five sisters and four brothers, and her family was told that she was born with a learning disability after being denied enough oxygen post a somewhat tricky birth; Susan’s mother, Bridget, was 45-years-old when Susan was born. The family later discovered that their youngest daughter was misdiagnosed and had Asperger Syndrome, with an IQ of above average.

The singer had a rough time while she was in school. She was bullied by her peers and dropped out with little qualifications. Instead, Susan enrolled in government training programmes.

The star continued with her bout of tough luck into adulthood. Although she was determined to be a singer, there were many roadblocks in her way. She had trained under vocal coach Fred O’Neil, and performed in church choirs and attended Edinburgh Acting School.

She also continued to sing, and you can watch rare footage of Susan’s first-ever stage performance, below, where she’s singing “The Way We Were” by Barbra Streisand.

In 1999, she submitted a song for a CD to commemorate the Millenium, but only 1,000 copies were sold. Despite the mediocre success of this project, Susan was finally being recognized; she was getting positive reviews from publications like The New York Times, and Hello!

Despite the fact that she was singing at local gatherings and events, Susan didn’t think of ever auditioning for talent shows and being on TV. Although she was trying to make it big in the industry, she assumed she wasn’t fit for TV talent shows and never paid any attention to them.

With that said, did you know that Susan didn’t have any intention of coming on to “Britain’s Got Talent” either? She was happy performing at local events and in the church until her mother convinced her to try to audition for a big show.

Susan had already turned out an auditioning opportunity for the “X Factor” because she felt that only people with good looks got selected. But, there was no way that her mother and coach Fred were going to let her walk away from BGT. Although she didn’t want to audition for the show, saying she’s too old, Susan found herself giving one of her best performances on stage in front of the judges!

Her audition on April 11, 2009, was viewed by over 10 million people, and everyone knew that a star was born. Susan didn’t go on to win the show, she came second to dance troupe Diversity, but her career was launched.

Since then she has released six albums and has awards and significant appearances to her credit. One of her albums titled “The Gift” got her renowned appreciation and she is known for her song, “Wild Horses.” Susan has performed this song multiple times on stage.

She defies the fact that you need to look a certain way to be a successful entertainer. The woman stands for talent, and hard work and her success in a cut-throat industry says it all.

Here’s wishing Susan a very happy birthday! And to celebrate her special day, click below to watch one of everyone’s favorite renditions, sung by none other than the singer herself!
