16-year-old debut on the rapid rise, Haley through the red, vegetarian but eat McDonald's storm to lovelorn, this year's 30-year-old Haley cut hair, back to the life of Haley.
"I'm a vegetarian, but I occasionally eat McDonald's, but I didn't realize it was the beginning of depression. "Haley said the price of fame was the pressure, she had to keep eating ice cream and chocolate biscuits, the result of a loss of voice, and later because of her friend's death, let Haley re-examine his life."
The great pressure of the popular once overeating
Haley said, "I've discovered my passion for acting, a concert, applause, and I realize how important singing is to me." "The trauma made her a better artist.
Haley was born in New Zealand in 1987, her grandmother loved to sing, her grandfather was a pianist and he played the accordion. Given the inheritance of the family, Haley began to show great talent for singing at the age of 6, and to move towards the music road.

I found a song of that name on YouTube by a band called RED (I probably can't post it here as it is commercial I think). I liked it and could imagine it might appeal to Hayley.
Ooh, hopefully it's a new song! We might not get to hear it for forever, though. But it's encouraging if she is indeed including another new song in her concerts. I wonder if it's the one she wrote with Jeff Franzel (there was a post by someone working at Tileyard the same day she posted that pic of her recording last November, that mentioned Hayley and Jeff, and then 2 yrs. before that, she apparently worked with him, as well).
I also find it nice that she's including The Rose and Edelweiss again. I hope that means she's recording them. I thought it might have been just for that flower festival last year, to include all the flower-y songs she could come up with, but maybe she decided to include those on her album. I would also love to hear the others, like Here, There, & Everywhere, Jolene, Bridge OTW, etc. Basically anything on that list that's not already on an intl. release already. Well, I don't expect the Taiwanese songs to be on an intl. release, though it would be nice.
Agreed Libby. I was blown away by her performances of The Rose and Edelweiss in that concert last year, even though we only heard part of them. I'd love her to record them and some of her other live stuff.
Yes, you are right Libby, I've now found more complete versions than the ones I have. The sound quality is not the greatest though. We need studio recordings of Hayley performing those songs. The finest performances of those songs I have ever heard by a country mile. And as always with Hayley, it seems so effortless.
