Overview

Columbia Records proudly announces the release of The Gift, the eagerly awaited second full-length album from the top-selling sensation Susan Boyle.

One of the most highly anticipated releases of 2010, the album premieres ten new performances from the former "Britain's Got Talent" contestant whose debut album, I Dreamed A Dream, sold more than nine million copies worldwide.

Produced by Steve Mac, The Gift offers a seasonal repertoire of inspirational and secular songs united in theme and the vocal artistry of Susan Boyle.

Along with her selection of beloved holiday songs -- "Do You Hear What I Hear?," "The First Noel," "O Holy Night," "Away In A Manger," "Make Me A Channel For Your Peace," "Auld Lang Syne," and "O Come All Ye Faithful" -- Susan puts her stamp on some unforgettable pop classics including Lou Reed's "Perfect Day," Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," and Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over."

Susan explains: "When making this album, I really wanted the songs to touch hearts. Music has always been a companion to me, particularly on special occasions. I wanted there to be a mix of songs that would flow with all our moods this holiday season. As much as the season is a time for reflection, it is also a time for fun and enjoyment with those closest to us." From the Label
