Susan Boyle ‏@SusanBoyleHQ
Hi @cheesemomlet It challenged my vocal technique and also the emotions of the songs made me think about my personal life.

Cindy ‏@cheesemomlet
@susanboyleHQ #AskSusan In what ways did recording album #4 challenge you as a singer and help you grow as an artist?

Susan Boyle ‏@SusanBoyleHQ
Hi @TatianaKapust I was honoured to have Michael Crawford duet. We sang our parts separately but we have spoken and I can’t wait to meet him

Hi @busywriting Michael Jackson would have been a dream duet but I’d love to duet with Elton John, I’ve met him and he’s very nice

Carol ‏@busywriting
@susanboyleHQ #AskSusan Now that you’ve duetted with Donny, is there another singer, male or female, you’d like to duet with in the future?

Susan Boyle ‏@SusanBoyleHQ
Hi @busywriting it was harder physically and musically as the vocals were more challenging and they are very emotive songs.

Carol ‏@busywriting
@susanboyleHQ #AskSusan Your CD 4 has a lot of BIG songs. Was it more or less of a challenge to sing them compared to previous and why?

Susan Boyle ‏@SusanBoyleHQ
Hi @SLMoore3 the duet was put together separately but we spoke over the phone and he comes across as very charming. Hope to meet him in LA

SL Moore ‏@SLMoore3
@SusanBoyleHQ #AskSusan Like you I saw the great Michael Crawford in Barnum . How was it performing a duet with him of Music of the Night?
