About Katherine Jenkins

Some of Katherine Jenkins's recordings




18 October 2008

"Miss Jenkins, 28, who has sold more than two million albums in the UK alone, is leaving her record label Universal Classics & Jazz and joining Warner Music in a bid to break into the American market.

"The mezzo-soprano has signed a $10million (5.8million), five-album deal which will see her move to Los Angeles in the New Year.

"Music industry sources said it is the biggest in classical music history."

Katherine Jenkins's CD Sacred Arias is being released on 20 October 2008 in the United Kingdom.

"As one of the more celebrated figures in the classical crossover genre, Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins here presents several religious pieces, all delivered in tasteful andmuted fashion. Familiar tunes such as 'Abide With Me', 'PieJesu' and even 'Silent Night' are neighboured with more obscure, traditional works like 'Missa Criolla' and even an interpretation of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' (no doubt influenced by the popular Jeff Buckley version). Throughout, Jenkins' impressive voice remains the star, making this release certain to appeal to her existing fans."--description at
