Hayley started singing at a young age but didn't achieve international fame until she was about 15 year old, with the album "Pure".

This is one of her songs that I like a lot... "Heaven".

Can we heard somewhere a song when she was a kid ?
Thanks. Smile

Yeah, I have seen videos of her singing as a grown up many times. She's a good singer, but that's not rare for and adult. Laughing

OK, I found video of her when she was 7 years old.

It's an armature recording of an armature performance so I don't recommend it as an "enjoyable" video to watch. Sleep
What it does show to me is how some performers get better with age (and I think that has clearly been the case for Haley so far) while others are cute when they are young but start to lose their charm when they get older.

Hayley Westenra (Aged 7) sings Michael Jackson's "Ben"

I'm sure I can find something better than that - maybe when she was 10-12 or something...

Hayley Westenra -- The Lullaby of Broadway when she was 9 yo, apparently.

...It's a little bit better but still not really very "enjoyable" as it is. scratch

Thanks anyway. Smile

She wasn't an excellent singer in those videos... but somewhat in tune anyway. Maybe she learned later. Maybe it's a good thing, it gives hope for a lot of kids. rabbit
