Susan Boyle is back with this beautiful cover of 1950s classic “Unchained Melody”. Usually associated with The Righteous Brothers, the former Britain’s Got Talent runner-up has given them a run for their money.
Susan Boyle first won Simon Cowell’s approval at an audition in Clyde, Scotland, for Britain’s Got Talent, but she soon won the hearts of the public and went on to finish second in the competition in 2009.
Boyle famously sang “I Dreamed A Dream” from Les Miserables in both her first audition and in the final and has become synonymous with the song, which gathered over 120 million YouTube views the year it was uploaded. Now she is hoping that this rendition of The Righteous Brothers’ classic could hit the same notes with audiences.
Despite coming second on the popular talent show, Susan Boyle has had a career of number 1 albums, with Unchained Melody appearing on 2011’s “Someone to Watch Over Me”.
Boyle doesn’t hold back in this live performance of the classic, which includes a full orchestra to compliment her beautiful singing voice. Her effortless delivery reminds listeners of her first appearance on the nation’s screens 10 years ago, and it’s obvious why the nation fell in love with her.
Luckily, Susan Boyle’s voice is not one to be overshadowed, and she sings as if the performance is just another day at the office. Whether you are a long-time fan of The Righteous Brothers or you’ve never heard the song before, everyone is sure to agree that she nails this version!
