Hayley Westenra is a stunning singer from New Zealand (but tours in the UK constantly) with a ‘classical crossover' as shown by her first album PURE, which went straight in at No.8 in the UK pop album charts and No.1 in Classical Charts.
This made her the fastest-selling debut classical artist of all time, ahead of Charlotte Church, Pavarotti, Bocelli and Russell Watson. The album turned Gold in the UK in one week and hit Double Platinum with sales in excess of 800K.
