Dream come true for Susan Boyle as debut album breaks early sales records

Britain's Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle is set to shoot straight to the top of the charts after pre-orders of her debut album broke all previous records yesterday.

It is the first album since the dowdy 48-year-old church volunteer from Scotland took the world by storm with her unlikely star turn on the talent show in April.

Miss Boyle will officially release the record on November 24. 

Amazon said the album was not only the top CD pre-order in the United States, but also the biggest around the world in the 14-year history of its website.

Amazon declined to give pre-order figures but said I Dreamed a Dream surpassed the 2008 record held by Supermarket Fantasy from Japanese rock band Mr. Children and 2007's Not Too Late by U.S. singer Norah Jones.  It had also soared beyond pre-orders for Take That's Never Forget: The Ultimate Collection in 2008.

Miss Boyle lost the final of Britain's Got Talent to a dance team, and she was afterward briefly admitted to a private British clinic for exhaustion.

However she was signed to a record deal by Britain's Got Talent and American Idol judge Simon Cowell and performed one track from the album - a cover of The Rolling Stone's hit Wild Horses - on America's Got Talent in September.
