Singing sensation Susan Boyle celebrated an early birthday on Wednesday (31Mar10) with fans who had travelled the globe to attend her lavish bash.
The Britain's Got Talent star, who turns 49 on Thursday (01Apr10), decided to start the party early in Tokyo, Japan, where she is currently on tour.
The Scot was the guest of honour at a celebration organised by her loyal devotees, who donned homemade 'Susan Boyle' badges and red scarves in tribute to the star.
The singer says, "We had a wonderful time. I can't believe they have come all the way from America, Australia, and the U.K. (to be here). I just can't believe how lucky I am."
Boyle is said to have received an extra special present for her big day - a $6 million (£4 million) pay cheque from the success of her debut album I Dreamed A Dream.
