Katherine Jenkins - Rejoice

2008-01-21 17:14
Rejoice is a box of chocolates. Under the delicate royal blue wrapping you will find purely classical tracks like "Sancta Maria" and "Le Cose Che Sei Per Me". Modest white papered treats like "Rejoice" and "Be Still My Soul" bring calmness to your heart. Don’t forget your favourite favourite – a perfectly serene cover of Seal’s "Kiss From A Rose".

Although Katherine’s voice is impeccable, she’s not succumbing to unnecessary lilts and Mariah s-Carey shouts to gain popularity. Her sateen voice sashays over your ears leaving behind a shiver. Classical isn’t for everyone, but fans will be most delighted with this allsorts medley of tracks. Could it be her contemporary beauty that makes her so successful? Who cares. She’s the new Sarah Brightman.

Shunt classical crossover into pop at platform one and the daffodil of Wales will be at the wheel. Katherine Jenkins has hit the right note.
