Hayley Westenra : In Her Own Voice Hardback
Hayley's first performance as 'Little Star' in a Christmas play was perfectly pitched, beautifully sung and enthusiastically received.
She was six years old. Now, at the tender age of twenty, she is the fastest-selling debut classical artist ever.
Her string of musical accolades is astonishing and her audiences range from royalty to premiers.
This is her story, from her first performance, through later roles in major productions such as "Annie", "La Boheme" and "The Sound of Music", her decision at the age of eleven to busk for her lunch money, and the subsequent record deals, money, charity work and classical superstardom.

Review by bacsa
It's a breath of fresh air to see a biography about a current female "star" which is not full of saucy details about the artist private life, but with full of inspirational thoughts for a young musician or singer. A charming, in some places a bit a naïve and funny account of Hayley's passion for singing and the somewhat fairytale story of her success and encounters with some famous and infamous people.(The story of meeting with Charlotte Church is just so spot on!)
