A song at the memorial service

I first heard Hayley Westenra singing at an Auckland Domain concert many years ago,
perhaps 10 years ago.  The song was "Amazing Grace" and Hayley Westenra sang this
song at the memorial service for the Christchurch earthquake victims which was held at beautiful
Hagley Park in Christchurch, New Zealand.  The Prime Minister and also Prince William attended and
gave speeches.

This is the video of Hayley Westenra discussing the meaning of the service and singing "Amazing Grace"from the New Zealand Herald:

  I once visited Christchurch many years ago.  I travelled by train to Wellington and crossed Cook Strait by boat and remember the beauty of the coastline of the South Island as the boat travelled
down the coast to Lyttelton Harbour.  It was very scenic and also seemed a little misty in the distance.
The cathedral in the main square was illumined and beautiful.

My best wishes
