Hayley Westenra breaks the 1 million mark
Posted: Fri Jan 9, 2004 10:28 am
Hayley Westenra's star continues to shine, with news in that her album Pure has now sold in excess of 1 million units worldwide. Hayley's been quoted as saying … "It's like, wow. Overwhelming." Fair enough. On her recent UK promo tour she sang for the Queen three times and performed in front of United States President George W Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The 16-year-old also had a one-off performance with tenor legend Jose Carreras.

With this achievement, Westenra has now reached the heights of Crowded House, the only other 'homegrown' act to have sold more than one million copies of an album.
