London, Great Britain – Filipina Rose Fostanes and Scottish Susan Boyle have many things in common. Both have humble beginnings: Rose is a caregiver working in Tel Aviv and Susan was a trainee cook in her native Scotland. They have incredible musical talent and joined television singing competitions at past 40 years old which is really irrelevant to this story. Audiences were skeptical, almost cynical, about their winning the competitions.
Both are singing champions in countries other than their own: Susan winning in Britain’s Got Talent and Rose winning in this week’s X Factor Israel.
Today, being the entrepreneur that he is, Simon Cowell who originated both shows in Great Britain, announced that he is producing a new single that would feature a duet by both women.
The song was composed by Sir Elton John and is titled “I Dreamed It My Way.” Susan, of course, became famous for her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” during her audition on Britain’s Got Talent and Rose’s finale song on X Factor Israel was Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.”
Pre-orders of the single, yet to be recorded, have already reached One Million.
