The scene is a performance of a primary school Christmas play. The expectation from adoring parents is for the children to sing flat, fluff their lines and maybe trip over the scenery. Everybody expects a few laughs; no one expects brilliance.
It was at just such a show that New Zealanders Jill and Gerald Westenra first witnessed their daughter Hayley's extraordinary talent. "Her school put on a show called The Littlest Star", Jill says. "Hayley was just six and all she'd said to me was 'Mummy, I need my ballet gear'. So we went along and found that in fact she was the star of the show - the littlest star.".
World In Union debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Singles on 12 September 2011. It has been in the Top 40 Singles for one week with a highest position of #23. There is one song by Hayley Westenra in the Top 40 Singles.
