Haley Giraldo Selected as 2002 Miss Golden Globe
59th Annual Golden Globe Awards to be Telecast Live On NBC on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2002
HOLLYWOOD--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--Nov. 15, 2001--The Hollywood Foreign Press Association today announced Haley Giraldo as Miss Golden Globe for the 59th Annual Golden Globe Awards to be telecast live on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2002.
Giraldo is the daughter of singer Pat Benatar and husband producer/guitarist Neil Giraldo. Traditionally, Miss Golden Globe, who assists in the Golden Globes ceremony, is the daughter of a well-known performer.
Born Haley Egeana Giraldo on Feb. 16, 1985, Haley has literally been on the road her entire life. When she was nine months old, she began her touring career by accompanying her parents as they toured around the world.
Having spent her life around the music industry, it was a given that Haley would follow in her parents' footsteps. In 1999 Haley decided to form a band of her own. Aided by Erin Potter and Natasha Diamond, GLO was formed. The band worked with noted choreographer Dan Karaty and recorded cover songs as well as originals.
In the summer of 2000 Haley set out on the road, along with GLO as a supporting act for her parents' tour. The audience response was outstanding. After completing the tour, Haley and GLO returned to the studio to record additional demos. Over the course of that year, GLO continued to hone their craft and began to gain public attention. By the summer of 2001 they were more than ready to hit the road again. As that tour came to an end, offers for GLO began to come in. In September, GLO opened for Smash Mouth at ``The Big One'' (Tucson, Arizona's answer to Los Angeles' ``Wango Tango''). When Haley isn't working on her junior year of high school, she and GLO are working to secure a record contract.

Why is he mentioning them? To introduce Miss Golden Globe 2002, Haley Giraldo, daughter of '80s rocker Pat Benatar and her husband, guitarist-producer Neil Giraldo. Aside from the long blond locks, there she is, looking very Benatar and hitting everyone with her best shot.
