Saw her singing on Britain's got talent on Youtube singing from Les Miserables (I Dreamed a Dream) and I was hooked on her interpretive style and voice.
While there are many singers that may be vocally better, she definitely has something special in the way she sings the selections on this album that is hard to describe.
In this album, "Standing Ovation", she does a beautiful arrangement of "Somewhere over the Rainbow" (similar to Eva Cassidy's version)...slow and very melodic. "Winner takes it all" by Abba, "Send in the Clowns"(by Stephen Sondhiem), while the piano arrangement is not quite as pretty as with Streisand or Judy Collins, Susan manages a respectable rendition of this one. "Music of the Night" (Phantom of the Opera), a duet with Michael Crawford is very good, "Bring him home"(Les Miserables). "Memory" from Cats is done very well, "As long as he needs me" (from Oliver), originally sung by Shirley Bassey, "All I ask of you (Phantom of the Opera), duet with Donny Osmond is very nicely done, "Out here on my own" (from Fame) is good, "You'll never walk alone" is one of those inspirational songs that has been done by many, but Susan manages to make it even better especially on the notes in the upper register without showing any effort, and this is a demanding song of any singer. "This is the moment" (from Jekyll and Hyde) is a duet performed by Donny Osmond and Susan.
