Simon Cowell: Boyle should sing for Prince William
Simon Cowell thinks Susan Boyle should sing at next year’s British royal wedding.
The music mogul discovered Scottish singing sensation Susan last year when she was a contestant on the show 'Britain’s Got Talent', where he is a judge.
Simon and the rest of the world were overwhelmed by Susan’s powerful voice, so he signed her to his Syco record label and she has gone on to become one of the world’s most popular recording artists.
Earlier this month, Britain’s Prince William announced he will marry his fiancée Kate Middleton in an elaborate royal wedding next year on April 29.
Speculation is rife over the finer details of the ceremony, which is confirmed to be taking place at London’s Westminster Abbey, and Simon has offered his own advice as to who should perform on the big day.
"Susan Boyle would be perfect," he's said.
Simon thinks Susan should sing 'I Dreamed a Dream', the song from the musical 'Les Misérables' with which she wowed audiences on 'Britain’s Got Talent'.
The star considers himself to be on good terms with the royals, and counts Prince William’s younger brother Prince Harry as a pal, since he’s a fan of Simon’s shows 'X Factor' and 'Britain’s Got Talent'.
“I'm actually friends with Prince Harry, well, I wouldn't say friends, per se, but he's come down to the show. He and I get along very well. He's a very, very nice guy. I like him a lot," Simon explained.
