HAYLEY WESTENRA ANNOUNCES INTIMATE LONDON SHOW!
We are very happy to announce an exclusive UK show for classical crossover soprano HAYLEY WESTENRA at the beautiful Union Chapel in London on Friday October 18 2013. This will be Hayley’s ONLY public concert in the UK this year.
She will be accompanied by a small rhythm and string section, and her set will include songs from her latest album, Hushabye, released in June and featuring Sleep On, a song specially written for the Royal Baby by Paul Mealor, who was commissioned to write music for the Royal Wedding.
Hayley signed an international record deal with Decca Records aged 14 and her first international album release, Pure, was a Number 1 in several countries, becoming the fastest selling international debut album in the history of the UK classical charts. She has sold over 4 million albums worldwide to date and performed for royalty and heads of state several times, as well appearing at many major sporting and commemorative events.
Her show at Union Chapel will be a rare opportunity to hear her perform in an intimate venue, and will be a treat both for long-standing fans and those who have just discovered her unique vocal talent.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am this Friday July 12.
SPECIAL GUEST - JONATHAN ANSELL
We are very happy to announce that former G4 frontman Jonathan Ansell will be Hayley Westenra’s special guest at her intimate concert at Union Chapel on Friday 18th October. This show will reunite the two internationally acclaimed vocalists who performed together on their Valentine’s Tour in February 2009.
The Union Chapel show will take place just four days after Jonathan releases his long-awaited third studio album, Two Hearts. After fronting G4 who came second in the first ever series of X Factor in 2004, he has gone on to establish his own solo career, with sales of over 2 million albums, a Classical Brit nomination and sell-out shows around the world.
Jonathan describes Two Hearts as an eclectic mix of popular opera (Caruso), classic favourites (Unchained Melody), rock anthems (I Wanna Know What Love Is), musical theatre (Gethsemane from Jesus Christ Superstar) and his first self-penned track Two Hearts Entwined.
“I can’t wait to duet with Hayley again and also perform some brand new album tracks live for the very first time,” he says.
