Kiwi songbird drives animals crazy
She may possess 'the voice of an angel' but to some of our four-legged
friends Hayley Westenra is a pain in the ear. According to her record
company, the 19-year-old New Zealand soprano can sing beyond the range of human hearing, hitting notes that can be heard only by animals. But, unlike the people
who have bought millions of her albums, the animals appear less than impressed.
A border terrier called Iggy Pup was the first to react when Westenra went
into her English studio to make her latest album and began to explore how high
she could sing.
Yep. I know just how Iggy feels. "A pain in the ear" is pretty much how I'd describe hearing Hayley. But why is this considered news? Answer here, at the story's conclusion: "Westenra's third album, Treasure, is out on Monday." Ah, there you go. "Iggy Pup will probably give it a miss," the story concludes. Me too. That probably means the houses of a few friends wil be out of bounds for a while. Uuugh!
