Hi there, I'm a newbie here. Actually I've just found this board and wanted to join this international community of Hayley fans! As some of you might know, I'm from Brazil, and I run the Brazilian Hayley fansite www.hayley-westenra.cjb.net. Well, I guess that's all for now! See y'all!
Hi! My name is Joe. I've only just heard of Hayley's music only about a week ago, strangely enough from another young soprano (you-know-who) message board. Needless to say upon first listening I was totally hooked. After some searching, I was glad that Amazon is selling some of Hayley's CD's (on a wait list, mind). Looking forward to getting "My Gift to You" and "Pure". I hope to stay here for a while and make some HW friends.

Hi Joe and welcome to the best Hayley site going!
I'm not the least bit surprised you discovered Hayley via another soprano's site. I am one of the original founders of CharlotteChurchfans.com and have been bragging about Hayley on their forums for over two years. I was beside myself with delight when I discovered Hayley-Westenra-International.com last year. More than any other site, this one truly serves the interests of Hayley fans worldwide. The video and audio archives here are priceless, as are the numerous articles, photos and reviews.
Hayley is by far the best new singer of her generation. She will soon be known throughout the planet as her album rolls out to the international market.
This is an exciting time for the music world as a mega-talented Hayley enters the scene. We as fans are supremely privileged to be witnessing the launch of a musical superstar right before our very eyes.
I would like to extend my welcome to you as well. Delighted to have you as a member.
Next month, it will be two and a half years since i first "discovered" Hayley and that was thanks to Steve and CCFans. This was the best thing to happen to me in many years because Hayley is fantastic. What a voice!!
She is also the most marvellous person when you meet her too. Which I have been fortunate enough to do three times now.
It is also a breath of fresh air to discover just how great Decca and Universal are, too. They respect Hayley's fans and her fansites. They are also happy to work with us. In return, we are delighted to do anything we can to help them promote Hayley.
Altogether, it is a fantastic experience to be able to do what little we can to support her.
Hope you enjoy being a member of the forum and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
