Katherine Jenkins - Music Of The Night

Katherine Jenkins, born 29 June 1980 in Neath, Wales is an award-winning Welsh classical/crossover, classical, operatic pop singer who first became known when she sang at Westminster Cathedral honoring Pope John Paul II's silver jubilee. She is an amazing singer who has really popularized classical music. It all started when she attended "Alderman Davies Church" in Wales Primary School, then she joined "Dwr-y-Felin Comprehensive School". Later she enrolled at the "Royal School of Church Music" and became a member of the "National Youth Choir of Wales" and then "the Royal Academy of Music".

Katherine entered many singing competitions as a teenager and won most of them. One of her first jobs was teaching people to sing, but with her good looks it was obvious modeling was a possibility to earn a living. It was while modeling she knew singing was her real passion so she sent a demo of her voice to a record label who then offered her a million dollar contract. Katherine's first album Premiere made her the fastest selling soprano of all time and she later became the first British classical artist to have two number one albums in the same year. She was also the first female artist to win two consecutive Classical BRIT Awards. Her albums features a variety of styles from arias, popular songs, hymns and classical to crossover music.

Katherine revealed that she took drugs when she was a student. She took cannabis, cocaine and ecstasy which she soon stopped and regretted.

      Katherine Jenkins is NOT an opera singer. Please learn something about opera before calling her "opera sensation". She is a POP/crossover singer who sings arias at the level that wouldn't get her a job in opera chorus.

      An "opera singer" is someone who sings IN operas, IN opera theaters, without microphones. It's not someone who croones an aria into a mike sounding somewhat operatic - to people who know nothing about opera.

      Which opera theaters did she sing in? Which roles? When you can name at least one you can call her "opera singer". She herself doesn't claim to be one.

      Now, popera/classical crossover has its place and its audience. But don't call them opera singers. Better yet - learn something about opera before writing anything about it. Oh, and listen to some real opera mezzo soprano, like Elina Garanca or Joyce diDonato.
