Hi, friends, Well, I knew this wonderful international forum 4 years ago, but I did not make my computer get access to the internet at that time . I am very happy to see so many fans here and share the information about Hayley.
Hi Tracey, glad you have joined. A good friend of mine is from China. She is currently in her second year at Oxford University reading Physics. So next time I see her I will find out how close you live to each other. I expect it is an enormous distance as the last time I did this I found out that although both in China the distance was over 2,000 miles !
Yes, I'll get sucked into one of these again. Welcome Tracey. If you ever get to meet Hayley as I did a couple of weeks ago, you will instantly feel as I did and as Mark says he did, that you have known her forever. I can't adequately describe how that feels. I don't think that Hayley has ever visited China, but with a few more fans there, who knows. I have only been here on HWI since August last year, but that too feels like forever. And like you my admiration of Hayley goes back a long way, over four years,since the time I first heard her voice in the best way possible I think, at a live performance. I was in tears in seconds! Hayley is one of those performers who seems at her best live, and her records are a pale shadow. So if you like her enough to join this forum from records alone, just think how you would feel if you ever heard her live! I would like to think that one day you will have that wonderful experience.
