London: Susan Boyle is all set to sing in front of the Pope next month, in a performance which will be beamed to a billion people.

The devout Catholic will perform three songs to a congregation of 100,000 at Glasgow`s Bellahouston Park on September 16.

SuBo, 49, described the big day as "my greatest dream come true".

"To be able to sing for the Pope is a great honour and something I`ve always dreamed of. I can`t really put into words my happiness that this wish has come true at last," the Mirror quoted her as saying.

Cardinal Keith O`Brien, the spiritual leader of Scotland`s Catholics, said: "I am delighted that Susan will be able to perform for the Pope. As her Bishop I am hugely proud of her.”
