5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! What a voice!, 28 May 2006
This review is from: Second Nature (Audio CD)
Having heard Katherine Jenkins on the radio many times, I decided to finally buy her CD. I was certainly not disappointed. Her voice has a wonderfully rich and full sound inherent of a mezzo voice but has a large enough range to tackle some of the soprano repertoire, such as "Song to the Moon" from Dvorak's "Rusalka". The richness of her voice adds a third dimension to her performances of soprano repertoire that most sopranos (Renée Fleming being a noted exception) cannot achieve. Her choice of songs is impeccable and she conveys the necessary emotion in each to perfection. Although her voice has a great operatic quality, she doesn't overdo the vibrato and slide lethargically up to higher notes like some opera singers. Some may say that Jenkins is in fact copying Sarah Brightman in her performing and repertoire. Although Jenkins is singing some songs done by Brightman (and why not?) she certainly does not imitate her voice by any stretch of the imagination and has her own style. Overall I think this CD is amazing and the best track in my opinion is "Song to the Moon" which is sung with such yearning and passion that it is worth buying "Second Nature" merely for this interpretation.
