Susan Boyle’s Net Worth And Early Life

Many people only learned about Susan Boyle after her appearance in Britain’s Got Talent in the third season. Susan blew the stage with her performances, opening doors or opportunities to create her career as a singer, artist, and musician. She is a hard worker who has amassed over $40 million net worth. This post discusses Susan’s early life and career to help you understand how she obtained her extensive net worth.

Early Life of Susan Boyle

Susan Boyle is a Scottish singer born on April 1, 1961. Her birthplace is Blackburn, West Lothian, in Scotland, and her nationality is the United Kingdom. Susan’s birth name is Susan Magdalene Boyle. Her father is Patrick, a WWII veteran who worked as a miner.

Susan’s mother is Bridget, and she worked as a shorthand typist. Boyle got inspired to become a singer from a young age. Her father was an occasional singer at the Bishop’s Blaize, and his influence impacted Susan.

Growing up, Susan faced difficult challenges. She was raised alongside nine siblings and spent most of her childhood being bullied. She has an “above average” IQ, and she grew up believing that’s it because she suffered oxygen deprivation as an infant. However, she later discovered that she suffered from Asperger Syndrome, which affected her IQ levels.

Nonetheless, Susan managed to go beyond average and become a recognized singer, amassing enormous wealth.

Career Development, Breakthrough, and Net Worth

Susan started taking singing lessons at a young age. Her coach, Fred O’Neil, helped her work on her vocals while attending Edinburgh Acting School.

Her musical journey was not the smoothest at first. She tried her luck in 1998 to send her cut demo recordings to different record companies and local and national TV and radio talent competitions. In her cut demo, she sang “Cry Me a River”, “Killing Me Softly”, etc.

She then went ahead and won several singing competitions. This exposure and success made her mother keep encouraging her to keep pushing and go for Britain’s Got Talent.

Before auditioning for Britain’s Got Talent, she had thought of “The X Factor” but felt their selection was based on physical appearance, making her opt out because she didn’t stand a chance. Her mother then passed away, and she never went singing publicly again.

However, her coach encouraged her to try Britain’s Got Talent, which she did in honour of her mother. She was contestant number 43212 for Britain’s Got Talent. She did an excellent job; her auditions received over 10 million viewers.

Following her performance in Britain’s Got Talent, she released her debut album “I Dreamed a Dream” using Simon Cowell’s record, and it hit position 1 on the UK and US charts. That’s how Susan Boyle hit the headlines and quickly rose to fame. Over the years, she has earned much from her singing and has a staggering net worth of $40 million.
