Amy Castles, Susan Boyle Look alike
Susan Boyle is said to have born in 1961, but this Australian singer, Amy Castles, was born in 1880 and looks a lot like a "made over" Susan Boyle.
Amy Castles had the support of Australian citizens in her pursuit of an opera career but she failed to dazzle Europe and the U.S. Many thought that her voice wasn't "operatic" enough. She quit performing after about 1920, making a few local appearances in Australia until her death in 1951.
