Susan Boyle sings for the pope

Glasgow - Susan Boyle has dreamed a dream and is singing for the pope.

Boyle, the unlikely pop star who shot to global Internet fame after she sang on the TV show <i>Britain's Got Talent</i>, was to reprise her winning performance of <i>I Dreamed a Dream</i> from <i>Les Miserables</i> during a Mass on Thursday celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI.

Boyle was also joining an 800-strong choir in singing hymns at Glasgow's Bellahouston Park.

In a pre-Mass statement, the Scottish-born Boyle said "it's a great honour to sing for the pope and it's something I've always dreamed of."

Benedict was capping off his first day of a four-day state visit to Britain that included a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II at Holyroodhouse Palace in Edinburgh.
