Hayley Dee Westenra (born 10 April 1987) is a New Zealand singer, classical crossover artist, songwriter, and UNICEF Ambassador. Her first internationally released album, Pure, reached No. 1 on the UK classical charts in 2003 and has sold more than two million copies worldwide

New Zealander Hayley Westenra has the sort of soprano voice that defies qualitative judgment. British critic Ian Sime was on the right track when he compared it to "camomile tea and essential oils aid sleep and recovery" - how can one make a judgment about those (although he does warn the listener not to listen to Westenra's new album, Treasure, "while driving at night or working with heavy machinery")? Westenra's soprano is silvery, pure, not especially expressive but with an attractive way of getting gentler as it rises

Ever since she was propelled into the limelight at the age of 16, notching up the fastest-selling debut classical album of all time, Westenra has projected something of an old-fashioned image. Westenra had been signed up by Universal music in her native New Zealand at the age of 12, after she’d sent them a CD with some songs she’d recorded, and, following the release of Pure in 2003 (part of a £3million, five-album deal) she had been on a near-constant treadmill of concerts and promotional events.

This is an amazing CD, and Hayley has a wonderful voice. I hope she will keep singing for a long, long time. Hayley's performance on this album is delightful and superior. To think this lady was just fourteen or fifteen years old when she did it is amazing. If you have listened to Hayley in her older years, you have to experience this album and know a little of her vocal roots and how fantastic she was even then. He beauty and versatility is as evedent then as it is now. I highly recommend it and believe you will enjoy it immensely.
