Susan Boyle to sing for next Bond film
Susan Boyle has reportedly been tipped to sing the theme song for the next James Bond movie. An internet campaign has been launched to ensure that the Britain’s Got Talent star is awarded the title track for the 23rd 007 instalment.
The singer is rumoured to join the small group of stars who have been chosen to sing on 007 soundtracks. Bond theme composer Monty Norman told the Sunday Express: “She has the right kind of sweeping voice.”
Grammy-award-winning composer David Arnorld confessed his admiration for Boyle through Twitter. He said: “Simon Cowel is like Father Christmas, this year he gave us the gift of Susan Boyle… and we didn’t even have to ask.”
The composer of both the classic Bond theme music and the Dr No soundtrack, Monty Norman, said: “I think Susan Boyle is great and has done marvellously well.”
Co-author of the best selling book The Essential James Bond, Lee Pfeiffer, said the Blackburn-born singer is perfect for Bond 23, the movie’s working title. “I think bringing in Susan Boyle would be a great idea, not only commercially but artistically, as it would ensure the series reverts to the kind of songs we regard as Bond classics.”
The film, which is due out in 2011, will be the third outing of Daniel Craig as the British secret agent following 2006′s Casino Royale and last year’s Quantum Of Solace.
