Susan Boyle To Become First British Artist To Duet With Elvis Presley On Christmas Album

Susan Boyle has scored another musical first, becoming the first British artist to duet with Elvis Presley on a record, since his death in 1977.

The Sun reports that the Scottish songstress will follow in the footsteps of Frank Sinatra and Celine Dion when she shares vocals on 'Oh Come All Ye Faithful', for her Christmas album out later in the year.

And, even more impressively, Boyle was given personal permission for the duet by Priscilla Presley, after making a highly personal request.

According to the Sun, a source said, "Priscilla asked Susan in person why she should be given the honour. Susan gave a hearfelt speech about how much it meant to her family and how Elvis was her father's idol. It must have worked."

Susan Boyle has sold 20 million records worldwide since she shot to fame on 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2009, singing 'I Dreamed A Dream' from Les Miserables, and sending Simon Cowell's eyebrows sky-high.
