Madonna said no to Susan Boyle using her song

   Mar 6, 6:30 pm

Washington, Mar 6 (ANI): Madonna refused to allow Susan Boyle to use her hit 'You'll See' in the British singer's musical.

The former 'Britain's Got Talent' winner wanted to feature the track in the forthcoming show about her rise to fame, titled 'I Dreamed A Dream'.

But while she got the go-ahead to use the song of the same name from 'Les Miserables', Boyle says Madonna was not so forthcoming.

"We had to get permission for all the songs in the show... Cameron Mackintosh gave us permission for 'I Dreamed A Dream' from 'Les Mis' - but we never got Madonna's 'You'll See','' Contactmusic quoted her as telling the Sun.

However, she insists the production is just as good without it, in particular the part where doctors tell her parents Patrick and Bridget that a newborn Susan has been deprived of oxygen.

"Why do I cry at that? Because that's the reality, That's when the doctor tells my parents, 'Don't expect too much.' He prejudged me. All the doctor told my mum was what I wouldn't be able to do, not what I could do," she said.

"But my dad said, 'All that child needs is love - and we've got plenty of that'. It makes me cry just thinking about it, never mind seeing it on stage every night.

"' I Dreamed A Dream' is a very romanticized view. It's more like I dared to dream that's what it feels like to me. Because everyone dreams of changing their circumstances, though not in the way I did. I couldn't have imagined taking off the way I did," she added. (ANI)
