The contrast between her shy manner and soaring voice won Boyle legions of fans. She has sold more than 14 million records around the world and recently released her fourth album, "Home for Christmas." She makes her big-screen debut in holiday movie "The Christmas Candle."

"Asperger's – unnamed as it was – made her different, and her childhood was marred by feelings of being an outsider." Boyle says, "that made me more determined to be where I want to be." But she admits that the isolation, the attempts to prove herself to people who didn't always understand, left a legacy of inner anger and frustration. "You don't fight without some resentment," she says. (The Guardian)

"Sometimes people misunderstand. Sometimes she gets frustrated. "Some articles have said I have brain damage," she acknowledges, before adding, cryptically: "It's been something else." A year ago she went to a Scottish specialist. "I have always known that I have had an unfair label put upon me," she explains. The specialist discovered her IQ was above average. And the diagnosis? "I have Asperger's," she says calmly. Asperger's, a high-functioning form of autism, mainly affects people's social interaction and communication skills. When she says the word, things fall into place. Finally, it's like looking at an apple and agreeing it really is an apple. "It is," she says, "a relief."" (The Guardian)

"I would say I have relationship difficulties, communicative difficulties, which lead to a lot of frustration. If people were a bit more patient, that would help." (Fox News)

"Asperger's often creates anxiety in sufferers, makes them teeter like a sheet of paper poised on the edge of a table in a drought." (The Guardian)

"Asperger's doesn't define me. It's a condition that I have to live with and work through, but I feel more relaxed about myself. People will have a greater understanding of who I am and why I do the things I do."
