Global sales of Pure, the international debut album by teenage singer Hayley Westenra, hit the one million mark in early January. Released in September, Pure is the best-selling debut classical album in British chart history, and the second best-selling album ever in NZ (after Crowded House hits set, Recurring Dream). Pure  is slated for a March release in the US. Westenra is pictured below wearing Kelly Osbourne’s (reality TV star and daughter to Ozzy) design for the Glassons Breast Cancer Research Trust T-Shirt campaign.
