Wiki

The Gift is the second album by Scottish singer Susan Boyle, which was released on 8 November 2010. Boyle has said that it has a 1960s feel "because that was my era".

She catapulted to international stardom overnight with 500 million YouTube hits, smashed music records around the world with her triumphant debut album and now Susan Boyle returns with her eagerly awaited second album, The Gift.

The Gift, sees Susan Boyle and world acclaimed producer Steve Mac reunited to present a breathtaking seasonal album. Featuring yule time favourites ‘The First Noel’ and ‘O Holy Night’, Susan also fearlessly takes on iconic pop songs including ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ and ‘Perfect Day’ giving them a new identity.

Also making her musical debut on The Gift is American medic and winner of the International Susan Search, Amber Stassi. Amber & Susan perform a stunning and inimitable rendition of ‘Do you Hear What I Hear’.

Now with a beautiful seasonal album she will, once again, defy critics and preconceptions.

Susan explained; "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."

Album Review: Susan Boyle's
Susan Boyle is following up her I Dreamed A Dream multi-million selling album with the November 9 release of The Gift. While it’s not billed as a real holiday album, you’ll quickly notice that most of the tracks on here are holiday standards and that’s expected considering it’s being released in the heat of the holiday season. Some may be thrown off by tracks like Jeff Buckley’s “Hallelujah” or Crowded Circus’ “Don’t Dream It’s Over” …
