Read on below to find out why this song is so important to Hayley…

15 years ago, I performed ‘Angel’ on the popular television show, Australian Idol. The support I received from a legion of fans went on to make me a household name. It was a dream come true and an experience that would change the course of my life forever…

At the time of auditioning, my beautiful Dad, who is sadly no longer here with us on this earth, suggested I perform ‘Angel’ as it would showcase my unique voice. He was right, and extremely proud when I made it through with a song he’d chosen. When we played the song at his funeral, I could feel him smiling down on me. Precious memories I hold dear.

I sang ‘Angel’ night after night at entertainment centres across the country as part of the ‘Idol Tour’. Each time, thousands of audience members would stand, listening in complete silence. You could hear a pin drop. The same would happen at my own shows for years to come. Very humbling indeed.

Later, I was invited by the ADF to entertain Coalition Forces in the Middle East. Legendary Australian country music star, Beccy Cole was also one of the entertainers, and we became great friends (you may even see me in her ‘Poster Girl’ music video – otherwise I was likely behind the camera!). I performed ‘Angel’ at all of our shows on that tour. It was incredibly moving to see grown men & women in military attire with tears in their eyes.

That year, I performed the song at a Carols event where Beccy was also in the line up. When the time came for me to sing, she emerged from the side of the stage to join me on the harmonies. Our voices, though different, blended perfectly. It was magical. Beccy inspires me. She’s an artist who’s found her tribe and forged a successful career that’s stood the test of time. Very admirable.

As I reflect, this song has marked many special moments in my journey of becoming an artist in my own right. It taught me how to use my voice – really use it, to be authentic as a songwriter and convincing as a storyteller.

All these experiences were defining moments in my life and career, and what better way to commemorate them, than to record a special duet version of ‘Angel’ with the one and only Beccy Cole.

I hope this song changes your life as much as it changed mine 💖
