Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle has hired the man credited with making rockers U2 one of music's biggest moneymakers as her manager.
The star, who took the world by storm with her extensive vocal range on U.K. reality show Britain's Got Talent, has hired veteran music moneyman Ossie Kilkenny.
Boyle has already pledged to release her debut album through the show's judge Simon Cowell's label, Syco; but the 48 year old singer has decided to augment her management team to include Kilkenny, 62 - the financial guru hailed by Bono and his bandmates.
A source tells the British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "Susan wants to work with Simon, but she and her family have also chosen to bring in Ossie Kilkenny as manager."
