Hayley Westenra is now an Ambassador for the Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts. It's a foundation created by the Prince of Wales and supported by Classic FM to encourage children to acquire a taste for culture and take part in cultural events.
The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts is proud to announce the support of a new ambassador Created on Saturday, September 29th, 2007 at 12:04 pm.
The New Zealand born soprano found worldwide fame in 2003 when her debut international album PURE went straight in at No.8 in the UK pop album charts and No.1 in the Classical Charts, making her the fastest-selling debut classical artist of all time. Along with her second album Odyssey and her third, Treasure, she has achieved combined sales of well over three million albums around the world. Her latest album, Treasure, has recently become her third album in a row to hit both the top 10 of the UK album charts, and top of the classical charts in the UK - an astonishing achievement for a classical artist who is still only just 20!
Hayley joins other ambassadors like Alfie Boe, Sir Elton John and Baz Luhrmann. You can read more about the Foundation here : www.childrenandarts.org.uk
