My Story
Katherine Jenkins – Biography

Compiling a list of the contemporary music world’s most illustrious divas is an interesting mental game to play. Instantly and obviously the figure of Barbra Streisand springs to mind. Streisand is in a rare band of perhaps three international women that can commandeer a devotional gasp from an audience of thousands with one single ... Read more in Amazon's Katherine Jenkins Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

After carving a somewhat lucrative niche as a classical crossover artist, award-winning Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins has seemingly gone "pop" for her fifth album, "Rejoice". Fans can relax, however. Far from attempting a Charlotte Church-style reinvention, Jenkins manages to slide gently and mellifluously into the world of popular music, retaining her trademark operatic vocal style and smooth, unruffled coherence throughout. The slightly arbitrary tracklisting on "Rejoice" mixes up music-theatre standards, modern pop and new material; Seal’s "Kiss From a Rose" nestles comfortably next to evergreens such as "Somewhere" (from West Side Story), classics like Shirley Bassey’s "I Who Have Nothing" and new tracks written by the likes of Steve Mac (Westlife, Toni Braxton), Take That’s Gary Barlow and Simon Franglen (Céline Dion, The Bee Gees). Of these, Barlow’s lush "Viva Tonight" is a highlight, though all are competent enough to add a convincing contemporary veneer to the collection. Far from selling out to the pop market with "Rejoice", Jenkins has made pop fit into with her own inimitable style. --Danny McKenna

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good just got Better 8 Nov 2007
By Mart TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Rejoice is the 5th studio album (excluding imports which are largely the same as the UK versions) by Katherine Jenkins. The album stands apart from its predecessors for two reasons: Katherine's new image, and the style of music represented on this latest release.

Firstly the image. Gone is the girl next door look (`Premiere' album cover) to be replaced, thanks to the photographic skills of `Rankin', with an appearance that now does her full justice, as anyone who has seen her live or on TV will probably agree. The cover and sleeve booklet images are in a league above anything seen on her previous albums.

Also, the front cover does show a striking resemblance to Andrea Bocelli's `Sacred Arias' 2002 album, notably with the lack of eye contact and similar smile, and this I think can only be regarded as a compliment to Bocelli. (Incidentally, the 35 x 35cm poster included with the limited edition CD version is from the same photo session as the cover, but this time with eye to camera contact).

Second is the style of music, which is a diversion from that of the previous albums. Until now the song choice has been predominantly classical, opera and traditional mixed with some popular pieces. This time it's completely reversed, with the majority of the album consisting of (relatively) modern popular music, including many songs written specifically for this album.

The new songs such as the title track `Rejoice', `How do you leave the one you love', and `I will Pray For You' are romantic ballads by Steve Mac and Wayne Hector (Westlife, Il Divo, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson songwriters). Other new compositions like `Shout in Silence' and `Viva Tonight' are contributions by Gary Barlow of Take That.

5.0 out of 5 stars What next for Katherine? 2 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
Even though the new album has generated mixed feelings from many people, I feel that the new album shows the potential for Katherine to move from being a classical crossover artist (though I hate that moniker) to someone that could challenge the so called new "divas". Compared to the U.K's current number 1 album (which I have), Katherine demonsrates more emotion and feeling in a single song than the current No 1 album (2 Dec 07) has in its entirity.
Rejoice shows Katherine's voice off well, though the mix of "pop" and cross-over classical does not always fit well. The mix of songs is understandable considering the demands made on artists to appeal the most listeners possible. Even so, the album is worth every penny and shows the huge potential for Katherine Jenkins as a singing star.

After hearing a snippet or two of her forthcoming album, I just felt I had to say that in my humble opinion, Katherine has gone too far in the pop direction with this 5th album. Getting to a 5th album must feel amazing, but perhaps the record company has pushed her too hard to try and appeal to the broader public - I don't think that makes sense. As many will also feel, Katherine is blessed with a rich mezzo voice, which really stirs emotion in her lower range. Applying this sumptuous voice to a more popera or pop-like repertoire seems a mistake to me. Her voice always sounds too low, where as in her previous classical tracks, it fits just fine. I don't know why this is, but it comes accross very strongly.

Katherine is a beautiful, talented girl, with a stunning voice. Let's not cheapen her with an attempt to bring her to the general public - she has a large and loyal fanbase (myself included), but we need to be kept with her based on the musical sound she created for us. Taking her in a pop direction, only serves to isolate the very people that loved her sound to start with. I look forward to Katherines "Viva la Diva" tour, which will be stunning I'm sure. She is just so lovely, and a UK institution, please don't cheapen her any further.

5.0 out of 5 stars PRECIOUS AND DELIGHTFUL!! 22 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
La quinta y maravillosa entrega de la Diva Jenkins, es un album que contiene mas melodias pop pero sin perder el enfoque clasico tan caracteristico de ella; desde piezas que nos recuerdan Broadway como la dulce SECRET LOVE (mi favorita del cd) y la monumental SOMEWHERE, la solemne REJOICE, una version muy hermosa de la cancion de Seal KISS FROM A ROSE, baladas tiernas como LE COSE CHE SEI PER ME hasta culminar con la monumentalmente encantadora VIVA TONIGHT; un gran disco de una gran cantante que nunca me ha dejado de cautivar.

My opinion is that 'Rejoice' does try a little too hard to be an album that will appeal to the masses. I have been a fan of Katherine's music for a few years now and every time I bought a new album I'd marvel at the way in which her voice, artistic style and emotional quality had improved. In the past I've enjoyed her slight nod to popular music in the re-workings of Adam's 'Everything I Do' and Huston's 'I Will Always Love You' - not because I need so-called popular music on a classical album but because I genuinely enjoyed the tracks. However, they can never compare to classics such as 'One Fine Day' from Madam Butterfly, 'Nessun Dorma', 'Chanson Boheme' from Carmen, 'Ave Maria', 'Va Pensiero' ad 'Song to the Moon', as well as others besides.

I received 'Rejoice' for Christmas. I put it on in the living room and then found myself tracking the song listings like a hawk. As a fan of Katherine's, I have always spoken highly of her singing to my family and would hate for them to think otherwise. But with 'Rejoice' I cringed when 'Kiss From A Rose' came on, particulary the line that starts 'Baby...'!! It sounded so tacky. My sister flipped over the CD case and said how she liked the song 'I (Who Have Nothing)' - luckily she didn't hear Katherine's version.... The tracks that ARE decent are 'Rejoice' (but a poor choice of track to start the CD with), 'Sancta Maria', 'Requiem for a Soldier' and 'Somewhere' was okay but I've heard better versions by classical artists.

Usually, by now, I would know each of Katherine's songs perfectly and certainly be singing them around the house at all hours of the day. But with 'Rejoice' I'm afraid all that's happened is I'm haunted by that 'Baby....' line.

I will still continue to support Katherine's more traditional music but would be discouraged from buying her next album without hearing it first.
