One Hour Documentary Profiles the Scottish Singer and Her Battle to Overcome Private Challenges During Her First Concert Tour

Santa Monica, CA - March 12, 2014 - On Wednesday, April 9 at 10 p.m. ET, Ovation, America's only arts network, will present the U.S. television premiere of Susan Boyle: Her Secret Struggle. This all-access, intimate and inspiring documentary travels with Boyle as she embarks upon her first tour and uncovers her battles with Asperger's Syndrome.

In 2009, an unknown Scottish singer named Susan Boyle stunned audiences when she performed "I Dreamed a Dream" on the TV show Britain's Got Talent. Soon after, she released an album that debuted at number one and became a worldwide bestseller. A true phenomenon with the voice of an angel, Boyle captured the hearts of audiences across the globe. Despite her fame, Boyle privately battled anxiety and avoided requests for live concert tours. Susan Boyle: Her Secret Struggle goes behind the scenes to reveal the enigma that is Susan Boyle.

Last year, with the support of her team and requests from fans, Boyle decided to embark on her first-ever series of live solo concerts. This film follows the singer on a journey through the stress of rehearsal to the opening night in Scotland and on to a sold-out American concert in front of 20,000 fans. If all goes well, a world tour will follow.

"We are pleased to give our audience such a deep, personal glimpse into the private life of Susan Boyle," said Scott Woodward, SVP, Programming and Production, Ovation. "Her struggles and triumphs are an inspiration to all. For anyone who's ever been afraid to follow their dreams, this is a must-see special about battling through the obstacles to artistic success."

Produced by Firecracker Films for ITV1 in the UK, and distributed internationally by Zodiak Rights, Susan Boyle: Her Secret Struggle will premiere in the U.S. on Wednesday, April 9 at 10 p.m. ET, only on Ovation.
