Hayley in CLASSIC fM Magazine

A platinum CD at just 17 - Hayley Westenra

Meet the chart-topping soprano with the God-given voice in a million.

"I figure I've been given this amazing opportunity and I really want to do my best."

Age 10 she was busking down under in Christchurch, now she's singing for the Queen, is a best-selling artist and Unicef's youngest ever ambassador; Hayley Westenra has come a long way.

You've got to put in years of hard graft to be an overnight success, so they say...

"I can't stay out late because of the effect it might have on how I sing..."

"Dame Malvina's shown me how to relax my jaw, keep the tension down. But the best thing about her is that she doesn't force me into a certain repertoire"
