Susan Boyle invited to perform at the White House

susan_boyle_CDDo you think Susan Boyle knows the words to "Happy Birthday"? She better learn them fast because she may be singing them to the First Lady. Susan Boyle has reportedly been invited to the White House in honor of Michelle Obama's birthday. The White House gathering would be a small group in the private quarters on January 17.

According to a White House source, "It will actually be a double celebration because three days later, January 20, marks the first anniversary of the president taking office. I would expect that a formal invitation will be made to Miss Boyle in the very near future. The President and First Lady absolutely love her voice and will be delighted if she agrees."

I can't imagine Simon Cowell advising her not to do it, can you? What a remarkable coup it would be for Scotland's favorite daughter! It would be a capper on a year in which her dreams really did come true. I Dreamed A Dream, her first CD, debuted number one on both the UK and US charts.

As for the stress of performing, I've worried about Susan because she is fragile. I can't see her enduring the rigors of a concert tour, but this might be a really good opportunity for her. It won't be a big crowd, and it will be the height of class and elegance. I can't imagine Susan receiving a warmer welcome than among the Obamas, who are already fans of hers.

All she needs to do is appear, sing some of her CD cuts, smile for the pictures and be her natural, charming self. I hope she says yes when the invitation is made. Let the dream continue.
