Biography: Katherine Jenkins

Today will be great...Katherine Jenkins is an amazing singer!

 Katherine Jenkins was born on June 29, 1980, in Wales. For some years (1991 to 1996) she sang with the Royal School of Church Music Cathedral Singers. At 17, she won a scholarship for the Royal Academy of Music, where she studied. In 2000, age 20, she entered a modeling competition and became the Face of Wales.

She was obviously a little excited about that. :) After that, she signed on with Universal, and six of her seven albums between 2004 and 2008 hit the #1 spot on UK classical charts. In recent years, Katherine has had numerous concerts and appeared in several movies and/or TV shows. Now, about those albums..

Second Nature was her second album, and included songs like En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor and Time to Say Goodbye. 

Her fourth album was Serenade and it has quite a few songs I'm familiar with and love: O Mio Babbino Caro, Be My Love, The Prayer, Granada, and more.

The only album I own in CD form (other than her Christmas ones) is this, the fifth one, Rejoice. If you are looking to buy one, I would whole-heartedly recommend this one! It has such beautiful songs...my favorites are Rejoice, How Do You Leave the One You Love, Kiss From a Rose, ... and all the rest of the CD. :)

Sacred Arias included Abide with Me and Down to the River to Pray, along with Hallelujah and Panis Angelicus. 

Believe also has beautiful songs -- it was her 2009 album. And in 2011, she came out with Daydream, but I haven't heard any of those songs yet. This Christmas, This is Christmas came out -- beautiful. And also make sure you hear her other Christmas album as well.
