Hi Frauke and welcome to the forum. It's nice to be able to talk to you twice now (here and AAI)!
All I can tell you about 'One Fine Day' is that I have heard Hayley sings English lyrics. Roger
Hello Frauke and Roger and everyone!
I listened to Katherine Jenkins' version of One Fine Day a few minutes ago on my recording of this morning's Classic FM Chart show. It is from Living A Dream and it is the same version (with English lyrics) as Hayley's version on Treasure. The composer is Puccini and it is from the opera Madame Butterfly originally with the Italian name "Un Bel Di"
Anyone who knows Katherine's version will realise that at a certain point when they hear Hayley's version, one of the significant differences between the two singers is highlighted. This is something I've seen mentioned in this forum previously (though not by me) and I suspect that it will become obvious from the promotional clip when released.
May I just say that I think all bidders on ebay have the right to retain some degree of anonymity. If they are happy to disclose their identity on this forum, that is fine.
Hello Roger !
I'd be very happy to disclose the fact that I was the highest bidder on the third auction of a 5-track Treasure promo CD. I'm sure my mates here knew. It was a snip at £47.56 (10 pence above what the 2nd auction went for).
I reckon that once I possess the full CD in five or six weeks that I will donate the promo CD to radio airplay in time for the US release (late March ?) We'll see how that goes.
I've also received my 5-track Treasure promo...just arrived today! One can definitely hear how Hayley's voice has gotten stronger. Some of the songs are arranged with minimal musical accompaniment. 'Danny Boy' really ends on a high note!
Oh, but look at the Treasure press kit on auction now.
