JAPPAN- Scottish singer Susan Boyle will take part in a special concert to be hosted by the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra on April 1 at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo.

Boyle was working as a volunteer for a local church when she became an international star after appearing on the British TV show "Britain's Got Talent" last year.

She also made a name for herself in Japan after singing at last year's "Kohaku Uta gassen," the annual TV music show aired every New Year's Eve.

The singer's debut album has become a worldwide smash.

Boyle, 48, said she is looking forward to singing with an orchestra for the very first time - a dream she has nurtured since childhood.

At the special concert, she will sing the title song from her album "I Dreamed A Dream" - taken from the musical Les Miserables - which she sang on the British TV show.

She also will sing several other songs, including the English version of "Tsubasa-o Kudasai" (Give me wings).

Tickets will go on sale March 7.
