In Events In Japan,
Su-Bo delights Japanese fans
Britain's Got Talent star Susan Boyle has travelled to Japan to perform for her fans in the country - and her most loyal followers even surprised her with a birthday party.
Susan turned 49 during her trip and was greeted by fans in Tokyo who bought her a birthday cake and sang to mark her special day.
Linda Caillet organised the surprise and said the plan began as a small idea but grew bigger as more Susan Boyle fans from around the world decided to get on board.
"A couple of us asked if anyone wanted to go to see Susan sing in Japan and before long it became a big group of us from all over the world," she explained.
According to reports, Susan's manager Simon Cowell treated her to a bracelet worth £6,000 for her birthday.
The singer rose to fame on the reality TV show Britain's Got Talent, where she surprised the judges with a rendition of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables.
