Susan Boyle may have recently choked on The View, but it hasn't stopped the UK singer from celebrating the release of her big-selling Christmas album, The Gift.

While enjoying the snow, Ms. Boyle mugged for the cameras and draped herself in an American flag. The singer proudly stood outside the door of her Scotland home with CDs in one hand ... and in the other, a mylar balloon with a #1 on it.

Talk about shameless promotion. You go, girl!
