Susan Boyle Awarded Triple Platinum Honor

Susan Boyle definitely has something to celebrate this Christmas. The breakout star was awarded a platinum record on UK television for making history in album sales.

Her album I Dreamed a Dream has sold more than five million worldwide since its release in November, topping the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the U.S. and the U.K.

To recognize her efforts, Boyle was awarded a triple platinum record during her own TV special, I Dreamed A Dream: The Susan Boyle Story. She accepted the record tearfully.

Journalist Piers Morgan, a judge on Britain's Got Talent, told Boyle, "To celebrate you, we'd like to give you a little treat, a little surprise. In recognition of your astonishing achievement in selling over one million records, here is the triple platinum record.

"Very few artists in history have done this. Susan Boyle, you dreamed a dream - this is your dream come true!"

Congrats to Susan! We hope this is just the beginning of her career!
