It is notably difficult to gain stardom at a certain age but Susan Boyle proved it wrong when she became famous in her late forties. The Scottish singer gain recognition after participating in Britain's Got Talent 2009 for her unique opera voice with a rendition I dreamed a dream.

Boyle has released six studio albums since 2009 and is still making headlines every now and again.

Apart from career, the Scottish singer was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism, in 2012. She thought she had gotten serious brain damage, so this diagnosis became "a relief" for her. 

That was just a relief for me, though, because for years I thought I had something a bit more serious, you know? So that took it off my shoulders a bit.

Susan Boyle isn't ashamed or scared of Asperger's Syndrome whatsoever.

It's nothing to be ashamed of. Everybody has something. I mean, a flaw, if you like. But you shouldn't be ashamed of it. It's something that you bring out in the open in the hope that you help other people.
