Susan Boyle shocked the world when she appeared on “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2009 and let loose a heavenly voice from what appeared to be a very humble source. As she performed “I Dreamed a Dream” from “Les Miserables,” tears of amazement streaked down the faces of the speechless listeners. As she remained in the spotlight following this performance, it was apparent that her new public persona was sometimes difficult for her. According to a Dec. 8 report on, Boyle has disclosed that she suffers from Aspergers Syndrome, a condition in the autism family that makes social interaction difficult at times.

This bashful singer was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome around a year ago along with the diagnosis that she has a higher-than-normal IQ. Now 52-years-old, Boyle was mislabeled as having a learning disability from oxygen deprivation at birth, and her early years were often a struggle. She has expressed a relief at obtaining a clearer understanding of herself through this diagnosis.

Susan Boyle has established a very enthusiastic following in her musical career since this iconic performance on television.
