    Default Dec 25-31: Last Susa-week of 2016

    We, as her adoring fans, are privileged to constantly watch and enjoy the public activities of Global Superstar, Susan Boyle. I am maintaining a daily log of the highlights of Susa-news and not editorializing toooo much. Accuracy is very important – PLEASE PM any additions and/or corrections to me. I’ve tried to credit the right Fan where possible. Please forgive my mistakes and send me a correction.


    December 25-31: Last Susa-week of 2016

    December 25, Sunday - Christmas Day

    1. Sherry from Florida noted that Susan’s total of monthly listeners on Spotify was 2,234,148.

    2. About December 20 last week, Susa-fans realized the backing track of “Silent Night” in the ASPCA commercial running this season was credited to Sinead O'Connor in the listing of the ad at iSpot.tv. Sinead O'Connor's version was used back in 2013, so the information in the listing had not been corrected.
    CanadianBill contacted iSpot to correct the information and received a reply from them: “Thank you for your email in regards to the Susan Boyle song in the ASPCA commercial. We have verified the song and updated the spot. We appreciate your feedback! Regards, The iSpot.tv Team” And The proof — https://www.ispot.tv/ad/AJsO/aspca-h...by-susan-boyle
    • As noted by Dchapman: “Yes, that is DEFINITELY Susan singing “Silent Night”, which makes the ad even more poignant. It's interesting that they choose her version of a song when they want the emotion of the situation to be deeply felt. No one singing today does that better than Susan!”
    • Two tweets”
    • “Wow the ASPCA never fails to take advantage of putting a gloomy cloud over my lovely holiday season with Susan Boyle and skinny puppies.”

    3. A Susa-tweet – ahhhh the joys Christmas-giving to ones relatives:
    • “Mother in law is more interested in the new Susan Boyle album rather than the new kindle fire we just gave her. Waste of money .Stuck in 1840s.”

    December 26, Monday
    1. Thescottishsun.co.uk posted “Superstar Susan Boyle fancies touring Australia to show off her new slimline body on the beach after shedding over two stone”, an exclusive by Douglas Walker. Highlights from the short report:
    “The superstar plans to tour Australia so she can hit the sands in her cossie after shedding 2½ stone. SuBo, 55, said: ‘It’s been a good year with the release of my seventh album. I’m looking forward to 2017 and I’ll be speaking to my team about it. Perhaps a tour to America or even Australia. I’ve lost a lot of weight so it would be nice to be confident on the beach.’”

    2. A tweet with a picture of the AWW album cover from Sony Music Indonesia: “Masih suasana Natal, dengerin album A Wonderful World dari @SusanBoyleHQ yuk! Translated: “Still a Christmas mood, listen to album A Wonderful World by Susan Boyle, come on!”

    3. Susan’s “I Have A Dream” from A Wonderful World was aired in Australia on Radio Sydney.

    December 27, Tuesday
    1. Sherry from Florida tallied an estimated total sales of AWWup until now of 89,793.

    December 28, Wednesday

    December 29, Thursday

    December 30, Friday

    1. Susan was out and about locally; tweets:
    • “Wee bit celeb spotting today seen Susan Boyle get off the bus and go to Asda!”
    • “Totally starstruck just saw Susan Boyle in the bodycare shop but Jim widnae stop for a photo.”

    2. For Week 8, AWW was #16 on New Zealand Albums Chart and #46 on Amazon Canada; for Week 5 AWW was #77 in Ireland and #28 in Scotland. [Different weeks because of 3-weeks difference in release dates.]
