According to this article, Hayley & Andrea first sang "Nessun Dorma" as a vocal practice, then rehearsed "Vivo per Lei" with good rapport. Andrea suddenly played "Happy Birthday" tune on piano, for a late celebration for Hayley's birthday.
Whether Hayley is going to sing the "Time to Say Goodbye" duet with him remains top secret. She said frankly that the song was made classic by Sarah Brightman & Andrea, so she felt stressed every time she sang that song.
Nessun Dorma!! Wow, it would be amazing to hear Hayley singing that!! Oh, I hope there's a recording of the concerts somehow! Oh, to be Taiwanese just for 2 nights! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
And I wonder if the last photo is where Andrea played Happy Birthday for Hayley, since she's grinning from ear to ear!
And in this photo, for some reason I was imagining they were watching/listening to Hayley's first spectacular performance in Taiwan at the World Games. She appears to be looking at something, so I imagined it was a TV with Hayley's voice emanating from it, and the Taiwanese crowd cheering. Probably not, but it was fun to imagine. i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
It hasn't rained much in England lately. I only recorded 2.7mm rain for the whole of March, and this month I have only 3.6mm so far! There will be hospipe bans next (although to be fair my water company say they are OK for now).
According to Hayley's official website, Hayley will also be joining Andrea Bocelli for his concerts at the National Indoor Stadium in Beijing, China on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st May 2011. More details and online booking are available here:
