Thanks for the great scan, I know that Hayley has not always had the greatest of reviews from home, this one is very complementary and I am sure her family will be pleased with it. An artists home town is often the hardest place to get the acclaim they deserve.
Ross' post 28 the Shepherd scan. When he gives her five stars I hope we're still in touch with her. To us, I reckon she's been a 5star kid since she started.
Nonetheless, for what ever reason he gave her only 4 stars--perhaps he just has double perfection as his standard?--it was a five star report.
Delighted for everyone.
I'm suprised they're putting money behind her promotion. I had the impression that in NZ 'Hayley Westenra' simply sold but she has been away from home for awhile (for serious performing) and obviously they don't want to risk sitting on her laurels. Also, were she not to hit in NZ No1 and straight into gold in the first week, it could have a negative effect worldwide. Perhaps that's why they're being careful?
Many thanks for sharing, Ross. Sounds like the reviewer is a fan of Hayley. It's great to see that he noticed Hayley's hard work - she's getting better and better (if that's possible) with diction and tone. Her maturity is impressive and I can imagine how smashing her next album will be.
Hi Stephany, You are right indeed. Patrick is now a definite Hayley fan!!! I love his prediction for Hayley's future career. Of course we not only agree with him, we knew this all along, didn't we ?!!!!! I am so pleased for Hayley to have such positive feedback from the press. One post to go, Stephany !!! Love, Marianne
