In Her Own Voice

by Hayley Westenra Darren Henley

For the first time the ordinary girl with the extraordinary voice tells her story. At the age of twenty, singing sensation Hayley Westenra already has more than three-and-a-half million CD sales to her name, and is the fastest-selling debut classical artist in British chart history - as well as the biggest-selling artist of all time in her native New Zealand. In her honest and uplifting autobiography, Hayley reveals what it's like to be the honorary mascot for the world-beating All Blacks rugby team, as well as one of the youngest ever ambassadors of UNICEF, and how a teenage busker from Christchurch ended up performing for the Queen, Prince Charles, President George W Bush and Tony Blair - all at the same time.
