Hayley Westenra is unstoppable. Her album Pure has sold one million copies worldwide, is the best-selling debut album in the history of the UK classical album charts and has held the longest number one spot on the New Zealand Top 50 album charts. Hayley has signed a GBP3 million deal for her next five records. She's performed at Albert Hall, the Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall; she's sung with top classical artists such as Jose Carreras, Bryn Terfel and Russell Watson; she's performed in front of the British Royal Family, George W. Bush and Tony Blair. Posh Spice even wanted her to sing at a party for the World Cup. Hayley was born into a family of singers - her grandparents on both sides sang in pubs and on the radio. Her perfect pitch was noticed by a schoolteacher when at the age of six she performed in a school Christmas play. A demo tape and busking on the streets of Christchurch led to her signing a record deal with Universal. Thus began Hayley's spectacular rise to fame. This is her story so far. It is also the story of an ordinary Christchurch family whose life has been turned upside down by Hayley's success.
