Since hearing your wondrous voice nearly three years ago, I have been supporting you here at HWI. As you can see from my photo at the left, I do own a Hayley Westenra International sweatshirt; one of the many generous gifts from Keith Sheel.
I've done what I can here in America to spread your voice; from urban centres to the rolling wheatfields. As it is difficult to find your music in some shops, I've written to music shops to get them to stock your CD's Although you're very popular in the USA, I feel that many Americans still need to learn about you and also hear more of your music.
I was blessed to attend your performance in Easton, Pennsylvania on October 22 of last year. I had hoped to meet you after the show to present you a gift. But it wasn't to be. I ended up mailing your gift to Roger, who graciously presented my gift of a guardian angel table ornament to you.
I also have seen you on television many times...most memorable was your appearance on 'American Dreams' and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.
Your voice has given me light when I was in the dark; shown me hope when I really needed it. Your music has the power to heal.
I trust that the Lord will continue to watch over you. I thank Him for blessing you so richly with talent.
May all of your journeys right round the world be safe.
A very warm welcome to the forum from me too. It's a real pleasure to know you, and I'm having great fun supporting you both here and at your live concerts. Many thanks for joining us, and I hope you'll be able to post here when you can find the time with your busy schedule.
I'm not doing very well this week, because I'm unable to be at 'Toast NZ' tomorrow either, but I'll certainly be with you in spirit. If I don't see you anywhere else before, I'll see you back at Cadogan Hall in September, so please take care, and try not to work too hard!
Wow! Thanks guys for the very warm welcome! May I just take this opportunity to thank you all for your support, especially the HWI team. HWI -You are such an amazing group of people and I'm very lucky to have your backing. I really appreciate your ongoing support and help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Welcome. It's lovely to have you join us here. You have given Denise and I three wonderful years of your music and your wonderful personality! We have met many times. The latest last night, and earlier that morning with your little wave from the stage. It is so nice that you recognised us both. Looking forward to reading your posts in the future.
