Speaking about the tour Hayley said

It is a great honour and privilege to be singing at the Battle of Britain concerts. To be involved
in commemorating the sacrifice and courage of the men and women who fought to protect
freedom is a wonderful opportunity. I am really looking forward to the concerts which will
undoubtedly be very special occasions

This moving tribute to our servicemen and women will allow audiences throughout the
UK to step back into British history and celebrate the bravery, sacrifice and freedom that
helped define generations to come.
