Katherine Jenkins is to perform this evening at the Memorial Day Concert in Washington, D.C. Hence this recommendation. At least twice in the past I’ve suggested her CD’s to ITA readers. Here are links to those recommendations.
My CD recommendation this week, Rejoice, is another of Jenkins recordings. While I give the edge to my two prior recommendations, Rejoice includes a number of powerful songs. You will not go wrong if you select any of these three CD’s. As usual I am including a review from an Amazon listener. According to my records, Jenkins was added to my recordings over eight (8) years ago.
“I first heard Katherine Jenkins voice on an airplane audio system en-route to Africa in May. I was mesmerized with the beauty of her sound. When in Africa, I met several couples from the UK and asked them if they knew of his British singer named Katherine Jenkins…..to which all responded in the affirmative and told me how popular she was there. A Scot pointed out that she was Welsh. Well, I ordered her CD from Amazon immediately on my return to the U.S. and have been delighted to be able to listen to her daily in my automobile…..a wonderful range, clear, crisp, lilting voice. The songs she sings in Rejoice are wide-ranging – show tunes to neo-classical. She is magnificent.”
I totally agree with this view of Ms. Jenkins voice.
