UK singer/songwriter Jane Winiberg was so moved by a program she saw about Hayley and other children with Progeria that she decided to help.
UK singer/songwriter Jane Winiberg was so moved by a program she saw about Hayley and other children with Progeria that she decided to help. Her natural response was to write a song about Hayley, and together with friend, songwriter and producer Mark Street, they wrote the track - Voices of Tomorrow*
Hayley is all smiles as she records at NightFly Studios in Essex.

Jane said, "I'd been in touch with Hayley's family for a while and told them I wanted to help. I'd been toying with song ideas and trying to think of who'd be best to sing it - then whilst at a fete in the summer, I saw a fantastic kid's choir performing. Instantly, I knew they'd be perfect and when I approached the choir master, Steve Titford, he was delighted to help."
There is also a second bonus song, "Life Will Find a Way" and a video on the making of Voices of Tomorrow", created by Luis Amador, documentary maker for MediaLAC Productions Ltd and Belfairs Media Arts School tutor. Luis said, "There's nothing more fulfilling than giving a helping hand. It's an honour to be involved in such a worthwhile cause."
All profits from this release are being generously given to The Progeria Research Foundation so children like Hayley can look forward to long and healthy lives, and realize their hopes and dreams. Thank you to the many people who donated their time and talents to making this song a reality:
