Susan Boyle honoured by university

Susan Boyle has been given an honorary doctorate for her contribution to the creative industries.

The Scottish singer was honoured by Edinburgh's Queen Margaret University, where she studied for a certificate in caring.

The degree, presented to the star by founding chancellor Sir Tom Farmer, is for work in society at large, which the university says reflects its commitment to the communities it serves.

Brought up in Blackburn, West Lothian, where she still lives today, SuBo achieved international fame with her television debut in 2009 when she sang I Dreamed A Dream - from the musical Les Miserables - on ITV's Britain's Got Talent.

One YouTube clip of the performance has 21.5 million hits.

Her first album in 2009, I Dreamed A Dream, was at the time the fastest-selling debut album ever.

With the release of two further albums, Boyle has since sold about 18 million albums worldwide and has 120 platinum and gold albums across 38 countries.

She has sung on TV in the UK, the US, Australia, Ireland and Japan, and performed for Pope Benedict XVI and the Queen.

She sang live to half a billion people on the TV show China's Got Talent.
