Westenra captivates Wembley

NZ singing prodigy Hayley Westenra accompanies Russell “The Voice” Watson to a sold-out Wembley Stadium and provides some sonar respite in a Telegraph review of Russell’s talents. “At Wembley, he was joined by a 14-year-old New Zealand girl called Hayley Westenra, whose vocal abilities seem more authentic than those of Charlotte Church, and they sang the Maori Pokarekare Ana with some charm.” Hayley and Russell will share the microphone again in June at New York’s Carnegie Hall.
