Birthday greetings: Fans from the Susan Boyle Forum in Japan to celebrate Susan's birthday in style!

Susan Boyle marked her 49th birthday Thursday with a whopping $6M check for royalties from "I Dreamed a Dream."

Susan, who still lives in her humble Scottish home with her pet cat Pebbles, was presented with the check at a private party to celebrate her birthday.

Susan is currently on tour in Japan and held the birthday bash in a penthouse suite in Tokyo's tallest building.

Fans, including fans from the Susan Boyle Forum,  were flown in for the occasion from Australia, Europe, the US and Asia.

"We had a wonderful time," said Susan. "I can't believe they (the fans) have come all the way from America, Australia and the UK. I just can't believe how lucky I am."

A source in the Susan Boyle Forum said "We have 16 fansite members there from all over - USA, Canada, UK, Asia, etc.
to celebrate her birthday and attend her performance.

"She spent at least an hour with these delighted ladies, and has enchanted them all.

Boyle's debut album, "I Dreamed a Dream" has sold 8.5 million copies across the world and is the fastest-selling album in British history with more than 3.1 million copies sold in the first four weeks late last year.

Friends close to the singer say she is expected to stay in her childhood home of Blackburn despite reports that she was house-hunting in London's upscale Chelsea neighborhood.
