I first realized there was a "Hayley Westenra" when I was listening to various Andrea Bocelli duets on Youtube one day. I came across Vivo Per Lei and heard a couple of other women sing the duet part in German and Italian. Then I found this clip with Hayley, David Pelletier and Jamie Sale skating: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdxRmcgsKDQ
I spent several days after that listening to most of the rest of the Youtube clips. While I had heard Celtic Woman a number of times and probably had heard Hayley before, I never knew who she was. I realized I had come across a very special young singer. I am a serious amateur baritone vocalist myself and spent several years singing with the Bellevue Chamber Chorus who have toured internationally in competitions. I prefer singing classical and/or classical Christian solos. I am self-employed in computer/network security, am an Eagle Scout, am a pianist and enjoy hiking, camping, playing bridge, etc. I would also be classified as a convervative Christian activist, particularly since Obama became a factor in the US. I look forward to getting to know you all.
a Warm Welcome to HWI!, from me in Central England. I guess you are in the USA. You will find everything you could wish to know about Hayley here, so spend a bit of time and have a good look round.
Things are probably about to get exciting, since Hayley will be performing in the UK for both of the next two nights. Heep an eye on the "Hayley in Concert sub board, you might find something yull enjoy (something new that is, as well as all the reports and photos from previous performances).
