16 year old singing sensation Hayley Westenra was today presented with a 10 x Platinum award for her album ‘Pure,’ by the Right Honourable Helen Clark, Prime Minister and Minister For The Arts, Culture and Heritage, at a special reception held at the Hilton Hotel in Auckland. Hayley is the first New Zealand artist to ever receive a 10 x Platinum award.

Hayley, who is currently in the middle of a national New Zealand tour, took time out of her hectic schedule to fly to Auckland for the presentation.

“I am really honoured to receive this award, especially to have it presented by our Prime Minister Helen Clark. Singing is something that I would be doing no matter what, and the fact that so many people are appreciating my music and are actually going out and buying my album, it is so very humbling” Hayley said earlier today.

“Hayley is richly talented and deserves the accolades she is receiving. The success of the Pure album has been a milestone not only in her career, but also for New Zealand. There can be no better promotion for New Zealand than our artistic excellence and the success Hayley has forged will open new doors for other New Zealand musicians,” Prime Minister Helen Clark said.
