Hayley Westenra: She is only sixteen and already her first album has gone quadruple platinum in her native New Zealand. Last month she appeared live on stage with Baritone Bryn Terfel and Three Tenor's Star Jose Carreras.

Hayley Westenra's talent was spotted by a teacher at the tender of age of six when she appeared in a Christmas school play. By thirteen she had signed her first record deal in New Zealand. Her third album PURE reaches our shores this week.

Hayley joins Jenni to talk more about her career and sings live in the studio.
