Katherine Jenkins, André Rieu ~ Believe

This is an article of singer Katherine Jenkins who just released a new CD on Friday and has a song on it with André. I thought it interesting and it's a beautiful song. There's a link below to hear a bit of it.

KATHERINE Jenkins is the wild child of modern classical music. She's admitted using cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana as a teenager and once said she could have "ended up like Amy Winehouse''.

"It's so important to me that classical music is accessible and approachable, because I came from a background where I didn't know anything about it,'' the Welsh mezzo-soprano tells Insider. Jenkins, 29, has sold more than four million albums, signed a $10.6 million contract with Warner - reportedly the largest in classical music history - and made Britain's Sunday Times Rich List.

Her eighth album, "Believe", featuring collaborations with "Andrea Bocelli and Andre Rieu", was released on Friday.

While Jenkins has made her name mining the popular-classical crossover vein, she hasn't ruled out performing straight opera, and she has a big name preparing her for the moment.

"That's something I've always said I wanted to do,'' she says. "Being a mezzo-soprano, my voice doesn't fully develop until I'm about 30. Placido Domingo has been giving me lessons to get me ready for my first opera.''

This is really nice! I hope it generates a little more recognition for Andre in the UK. Jann must be lovin' this! ;-) Do you suppose we'll be seeing Katherine or Andrea B. on one of Andre's future DVDs?

Thanks for posting this, I learned about this artist about 2 years ago when I was searching for new artists that I would like. Her voice attracted me and I bought I think her first CD. I'm sure she's grown since then and I'm happy to hear she has collaborated with Andre on her new CD. Like Chris T., I do hope they would share the stage in the future for a concert like Bond and Russell Watson. She's definitely up and coming!

Katherine Jenkins will be appearing with Andrea Bocelli and David Foster on a Christmas special on PBS. It's on Nov. 29 at 10 pm on the Fresno PBS station. Should be a good one to watch.
