Susan Boyle, the singer who became an international sensation when her performance on a British TV talent show went viral, is coming to Sarasota.

Boyle was an unknown Scottish singer when she appeared on "Britain's Got Talent" in 2009 and stunned the world with her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dreamed" from "Les Miserables." Her performances became the most-watched Youtube video that year, and since then she's sold 22 million copies of her five albums. She's been nominated for two Grammy Awards. She starts her first American tour in October.
