Becs Posted: Tue Apr 18, 2006 1:10 am Oh I forgot(hehe preoccupied with the boys) Haley has grown into a very beautiful, sophsicated young lady. I saw her on a talent show in NZ(New Zealand for those who don't know what I am talking about) called Mc Donalds Young Entertainers when she was I think 11 or 13 and she won it. It was a national competition. She danced and sang and was very good.
This was the first Il Divo concert I have been to, I wasn't sure what to expect but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I was pleasantly surprised to see some of my work colleagues and also ladies from other fan sites that I have met before. The atmosphere was electric, everyone had a great time. Hayley sang beautifully at the beginning and I had the chance to meet her and get a quick photo with her during the interval, she was a lovely girl, very genuine and down to earth.
It was nice to see Hayley get such a warm reception as well last night.
We now have TWO videos of Hayley opening for Il Divo! There is a link to one below, and the other one is in the Chicago thread.
This video of Hayley singing Across the Universe of Time in Sheffield on 17th April is thanks to Louise (taibhse) in the Il Divo forum and to denephew01 for asking the question there!
I will post the direct Rapidshare link provided by Louise (at her request) but if anyone has problems accessing Rapidshare or working out how to use it, let me know and I will make it available in my personal webspace in a day or two's time; possibly Simon will too, on the HWI website.
The video was superb. I noticed the audience was a lot quieter here than in Chicago. Anyone else notice that? I can't help but wonder who was accompanying Hayley on 'Across the Universe of Time.' Was it herself or Sophie or someone else?
