Katherine Jenkins

While still in her mid-twenties, Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins emerged as Britain's all-time best-selling classical artist, although critics charged her success was more a result of physical beauty than musical talent. Born June 29, 1980, in Neath, West Glamorgan, Wales, Jenkins fell under the sway of classical music at age seven, studying piano and singing in her local choir throughout childhood. In 1990, she joined the Royal School of Church Music Cathedral Singers and also served with the National Youth Choir of Wales. At 17, Jenkins was accepted into London's Royal Academy of Music, tackling a series of operatic roles while studying Italian, German, French, and Russian. She continued pursuing opera as a postgraduate while moonlighting as a vocal instructor, but upon winning the Face of Wales modeling contest she instead supplemented her income as a fashion model. In 2003, Universal Classics signed Jenkins to a six-album, seven-figure recording contract, reputedly the largest classical deal in U.K. music industry history. While at work on her debut LP, she performed at Westminster Cathedral in honor of Pope John Paul II and also made her inaugural appearance at the famed Sydney Opera House. Issued in the spring of 2004, Jenkins' debut, Premiere, immediately topped the classical music charts, and its success inspired a quickie follow-up, Second Nature. Together the albums vaulted the singer to a level of commercial success previously unknown in classical music circles, and she further exploited her growing mainstream popularity by recording a classical rendition of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" for 2005's Living a Dream. Serenade topped both the U.K. classical and album charts in 2006, as did Rejoice the following year. Sacred Arias (2008) represented her last album for Universal before transitioning to Warner Bros. for the more contemporary Believe (2009) and Daydream (2011). The following year Jenkins released her first official holiday album, This Is Christmas. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

although critics charged her success was more a result of physical beauty than musical talent

Yes, there are a lot of jealous scoundrels out there. She is beautiful and extremely talented.
Sweet clear Voice!!
WHAT DOES BEAUTY HAVE TO DO WITH A GIFT FROM GOD, SHE HAS A BEAUTIFUL AND PURE VOICE. IT BRINGS CHILLS,,,,,
This song brings tears to my eyes...so beautiful!
Now why in the biography credit charges that "it was only her physical beauty?" Sounds like she proved THAT WRONG! Beauty is to be accepted and God praised like any other gift! Speaking of praise, artist / writer Dennis Jerngan was just at my church in TX, singing. He is about to release video of his life & struggle with same-sex attraction (and the victory over same!) watch for free (Sept 2014 only) at dennisjernig a n . c o m before release, if anyone you know might benefit. It's great, for ALL fol

Another wonderful Welch singer. Enjoyed her singing greatly.
Love this artise
Lovely
I listen to celine and Andrea Bocelli,kath e r i n e has a beautiful voice too,i also love and listen to IL VOLO If you havent heard of them,check em out
i like her and sarah brightman, haley westerna, jackie evancho
I prefer Katherine over Bocelli and Brightman.
Eeally well sang better than other singers except andre bocelli and sarah brightman
sitting here on the coast of Maine its late january wind and snow blowing across the lake,a fire in the hearth a warm and mellow cottage listening Katherine Jenkins on the stereo ......FLAWLE S S beautiful music, my other favorite is Nana Mouskouri, the best of the best
Love you Jenkins congrats you have such a authentic voice such as when you sing the so popular song sang by Andrea Bucceli
Hearing this song sung by her just rips my heart out it's so awesome. You made my day with your gift from our creator. You bring for sure.
FANTASTIC !!!!!!
marry me miss Jenkins?
Good. Not as good as Sarah Brightman but good. And you are right its okay but not properly trained
Nice voice, but improperly trained. Top is pinched and strained, not open and full.
Her voice is beautiful!!! So is she!!! How can anyone say anything but good about her.
jtucker961
Nothing wrong with physical beauty, no? Beautiful voice, too.
REAL! NO BOOB job!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Anyway, does it relly matter?
Covers... No. Just no.
amazing how good music can make you more productive. very inspiring.
Katherine Jenkins is such beautiful inspiration for an aspiring classical singer! What a blessing she is to me!
Ummm, don't get me wrong, she has a good voice, it is quite lucid. But just listening to this version and then the version with Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli, outside of just range, there is a clear difference in quality. She is just ok. I agree with the bio; it is based more on her imagery than voice.

Ah well, that is why they created the show The Voice. :)
With so much cultural rot out there, listening to Katherine Jenkins is like a clear, Crystal Welsh spring to my soul!

She has an amazing voice. I heard on one of the Doctor Who Christmas Specials. (Silence is All you Know) I wish the Pandora people put it one here....

Fantastic!
Amazing voice!!!!

Sometines it's simply hard to believe someone that physically beautifu can be that talented and intellignt as well. She is undeniably extremely gifted.
ejmuscarella
Dearest Katherine, Thank you so very much for sharing your blessed gift with all of us. When God gives us so much talent in such a beautiful package it kind of takes your breath away. May God continue to Bless you and your career for years and years to come. Sincerely, ejm
Can't say I'm honestly a fan of her voice. And I might get flak for this, but I can understand why some critics credit her success to simply her good looks because a lot of her renditions I find are personally sung better by the likes of Westenra, Brightman, and others. And considering how many people in the comments below keep bringing up how beautiful she is, I'd say there is indeed weight to what critics say about her. Granted, she isn't a bad singer by any means, but there are better
never heard her till right now. shes really good.
She has an amazing voice and a lot of talent.
Sometimes God gives someone more than their fair share. I think Katherine handles her great talent in a very humble way,
monevastop6
She is both incredibly gorgeous and has the best vocals I have ever heard.
rspellman
what a powerful voice
I want to hear her sing with Ramin Karimloo. That would be AMAZING!!
amermaidmome n t
Full off class, beauty, and dignity.She can even dance. I listen to her everyday at work. Eases the soul.
I first heard Kathrine when she sang the theme song from Band of Brothers, which is my absolute favorite tv movie. A friend shared the words and I was in heaven. She has it all.

Beautiful!
OMGOSH the First time I heard her was on Doctor Who's Season 5 Christmas Special singing Silence is all you need.....Ama z i n g voice... soooo underrated!! !
