Susan Boyle was thrilled to meet one of her idols, Elton John, on Sunday night, when she attended his gig at Falkirk Stadium.
Hearing Elton perform and getting invited backstage to chat to the legend was a dream come true for the Scottish singer and it gave Susan a little musical boost, as she continues to work on her hotly anticipated fourth album.
The 51-year-old told the Daily Record: “I was surprised he (Elton) even knew who I was.
“It’s rare I’m speechless but on this occasion I was.
“The man is a musical genius and I was thrilled I got to say hello backstage.”
And it looks like Elton’s piano playing skills have inspired Susan, as the star is believed to be taking lessons, after splashing some of her hard earned cash on a beautiful piano.
According to reports, Susan is keen to put her new found skills to goods use by playing the piano on her new album – something which is sure to delight her global army of fans.
A source told The Sun: “Susan loves the piano and always dreamed of being able to reach a standard which would allow her to play on stage and on her albums.
“She is apparently doing really well with the tutor.
“Susan’s determined to become a pianist and it would be wonderful if she was able to play in front of all her fans.”
