Hayden received the Gretchen Wyler Award, given annually at the Genesis Awards to a celebrity who brings attention to animal causes. Wyler, who founded the awards and was also an actress, presented the first award to Paul McCartney. She died last May from breast cancer.
Hayden’s parents and her boyfriend and Heroes co-star – Milo Ventimiglia were in the audience and watched a video of the actress and others paddling out on surfboards and confronting fishermen, who trap and kill dolphins to protect their fish supply. They then gave a standing ovation as Hayden took the stage.
Save the cheerleader! And she’ll save the dolphins! Kudos to Claire Bennett!
Celine Dion Malaysia Concert is now rescheduled from April 8 to April 13 due to her suffering from a respiratory tract infection which has caused bronchial and laryngeal inflammation since her arrival in Australia.
The Canadian diva was due to perform two concerts in Sydney tonight and tomorrow night at the Entertainment Centre, but announced at midday today she would not be well enough to go through with them. Dion was treated today by a prominent Sydney specialist who advised she needs 48 hours of treatment and rest to make a complete recovery before she can resume performing at her best.
Since the performances in Sydney and Perth had been postponed to April 5 & 6, it is necessary to reschedule the concert in Malaysia as well. The Malaysia concert will now be performed on Sunday April 13, 8 pm at Stadium Merdeka.
All tickets purchased for the original dates in all cities are valid for the same seats on the new performance date without any need for exchange.
