Fresh Horizons for Hayley

Christchurch Star July 9th 2003

The Christchurch girl with the voice of an angel is spreading her wings.
Hayley Westenra,whose debut international albim,Pure,will be launched in New Zealand on July 17,is off on an eight month promotional tour.
It will take her to Australia,Hong Kong,Korea,and Singapore and then to the United Kingdom.
A concert in Wales with international tenors Bryn Terfel and Jose Carreras ,and two in London,will be highlights in a dreamlike trip that will introduce the year 12 Burnside High School student to the music world.
I'm going to miss my family and my friends and just being home,with space outside.But what i'm doing is just so exciting," the 16 year old singer said.
Alongside the glamorous gowns in her suitcase will be lots of natural herbal products designed to keep the young
vegetarian healthy.
Last year, Hayley signed with Decca Records,
International the world's largest classical label and home to greats such as Andrea Bocelli ,Pavourotti and Russell Watson,
Hayley has broken new artistic ground in her choice of songs for Pure.
Before,I was singing show tunes and light classical music. It was all one genre,whereas now i've got a lot more variety.
I'm going to more extremes withproper classical pieces and poppier songs.
Making this album has broadened the way i sing, I've developed different singing styles."
And for the time being,that is just where she wants to stay.
Sometimes i think i'd like to be an Opera singer one day,but when i hear Celine Dion and other people,I'd love to do that too.I guess you see how it goes.You feel your way through."
For the moment,life is exciting enough.
When your recording,it's a relaxed atmosphere and a fun experience,but when you're performing live,its a real buzz."
It won't all be promotional work and travel for the young student,halfway through her sixth form year,however.
A tutor has been engaged in London to help her keep up with school work.
I'll be working towards some GCE subjects,English language,English literature,French,German,Science,Maths,and History."

Andy's Site Hayley Westenra World (UK)

On this home page, I will include some information about how I originally became a fan ,
I first heard Hayley at all our local  talent quests held at the different malls around town.
Christchurch ,New Zealand,
One i Remember very well was at South city Mall ,
Hayley Sang Con te Partiro (Time to say goodbye).
At the end of the show and after the prizes were given out Hayley was asked to sing it again to a Great response,one of her first standing ovations i'd say.Among the crowd were two people grinning from ear to ear a family resemblance i could see, it was Hayley's aunt and grandmother, they had every reason to be proud.
Hayley's voice always stood out from the rest,So it was only a matter of time before the world would take notice. My daughter Kimberley was also in these contests but in a different age group.The song (time to say goodbye ) is off Hayley's Demo CD "Walking in the Air" I remember hearing about plans for that as we waited for the auditions for "Rush"a New Zealand Written Musical that Hayley,Sophie, and Isaac all performed in.It would be great to hear these songs sung by Hayley now ,they were Awesome then ,so now would be out of this world.
We saw Hayley at many Auditions ,for singing and acting parts.She was involved in these agencies .(1)Little Youth Talent School(2)Spotlight Model Agency(3) Renaissance Management.
