I thought HW fans would find her story very interesting, and she sounds like Katherine Jenkins.
Well the latest google says she's bringing out her own CD (though how financed doesn't say) and in some ways could be seen as a parallel to Hayley. Unlike Hayley she pushed herself to Ireland and is having to busk in Nelson as CHCH is too wrecked.
I wonder if Hayley might take the time to research her, hear her and perhaps... give her a leg up? The latest blurb contrasts her favourably with Hayley but with added vibrato, although the positive way to express that would be to say that Hayley perhaps has the experience not to overdo it!?

Rebecca Nelson is now an "Able Musician" in the Royal New Zealand Navy. She has been in Britain for the past week or so, touring and giving some private performances at various military venues, including on the deck of HMS Victory (the flagship of probably a somewhat more famous Nelson).
Last night was Rebecca's one public performance in this visit, when she was guest soloist for the Welsh Guards at their St. David's Day concert (only a week late) in the Guards' Chapel at Wellington Barracks in London. I met Rebecca in the interval. When I mentioned about her coming from the same place as Hayley, she told me that she and Hayley went to school together and even had the same singing teacher. So, her links with Hayley are closer than I knew about, but Rebecca's kiwi accent is definitely stronger than Hayley's is now
I haven't uploaded my photos yet, but maybe I could share a couple of them here if people are interested.
