Katherine Jenkins is an award-winning Welsh mezzo-soprano.

She also stands as the first female artist to win two consecutive Classical BRIT Awards.

Jenkins has released four number one studio albums to date, with a fifth due to be released in November 2007. Her albums feature arias, popular songs, hymns and classical crossover music and she has performed in a large number of concerts around the United Kingdom and other countries, including the United States and Australia.

Early life:
At school Jenkins received A grades in both GCSEs and A Levels and participated in productions such as Calamity Jane and Guys and Dolls. Two years after she had become a choir girl at her church, she shattered a chandelier whilst singing "O Holy Night" at Swansea's Brangwyn Hall.Jenkins' music talents continued to progress and she achieved Grade 8 distinctions in singing and piano.
Between 1990 and 1996 Jenkins was a member of the Royal School of Church Music Cathedral Singers, where she achieved the St Cecilia Award, which was thought of as a high accolade. Jenkins was also a member of the National Youth Choir of Wales for three years. She twice won the BBC Radio 2 Welsh Choirgirl of the Year contest, and won the BET Welsh Choirgirl of the Year. Jenkins was also awarded the Pelenna Valley Male Voice Choir Scholarship for the most promising young singer, and at the age of seventeen, she won a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London. At the Academy, she also studied Italian, German, French and Russian and graduated with honours. After entering a modeling competition, Jenkins was made the Face of Wales in 2000 and then decided to focus more intently on her musical career. Jenkins taught music to children prior to being signed by Universal.

Career:

20032004: Premiere and Second Nature:
Jenkins first came to public attention when she sang at Westminster Cathedral honouring Pope John Paul II's silver jubilee in October 2003 and then supporting Aled Jones on his tour. In November of that year, Jenkins was a special guest at the Max Boyce Downunder Show at the Sydney Opera House and thus she made her international debut. In August 2004, she made her first US appearance supporting crossover soprano Hayley Westenra at Joe's Pub in New York City.
In 2004, at the age of just twenty-three, Jenkins signed the largest record deal in United Kingdom classical recording history, reportedly worth 1 million.
Her debut album, Premiere which was released in 2004, lasted a total of eight weeks at the top of the classical charts, which made her the fastest selling soprano of all time. She soon became the first British classical artist to have two number one albums in the same year with Premiere and Second Nature, and she now stands as the only person to hold the number one and two classical album chart positions. Second Nature was later named the Album of the Year at the 2005 Classical BRIT Awards on May 25, 2005. This award is chosen by listeners of Classic FM.
Jenkins was also the first person to perform the Home Nations anthem "The Power of Four". She then began to appear regularly as the singer for the Welsh national anthem "Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau" at Welsh international rugby matches. As well as her appearances before Rugby Union matches, in 2004, Jenkins sang at the Rugby League Powergen Challenge Cup final between St. Helens and Wigan. Jenkins is now the official mascot for the Wales rugby team.

20052006: Living A Dream and Serenade:
In April and May of 2005, Jenkins supported Irish tenor Ronan Tynan on his first US tour as a solo artist. At the Berlin stage of Live 8 in 2005, Jenkins sang the hymn "Amazing Grace". Her interpretation was partly a vocal solo; for the rest she was accompanied by a single softly played piano.
Jenkins' Italian-language version of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" ("L'Amore Sei Tu"), first performed live at Nostell Priory, West Yorkshire on August 28, 2005, was the first cut on Jenkins' third album Living A Dream which was released in 2005. When Living A Dream was released, she held the positions of one, two and three in the classical music chart along with her first two albums. Jenkins repeated the success of Second Nature with her Living A Dream album when she won the classical BRIT award for Album of the Year for a second time. She now stands as the first female artist to win two consecutive classical BRIT awards.
Jenkins sang "I Feel Love" in front of The Queen at the Royal Variety Performance on November 21, 2005, whilst wearing a flashing, multicoloured dress. She also performed at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway on December 11, 2005.
On May 8, 2006, Jenkins sang at Trafalgar Square to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of VE Day. In October 2006 Jenkins helped to launch the Royal British Legion's poppy appeal at Covent Garden whilst wearing a dress made of 2,500 poppies.
Her fourth studio album entitled Serenade released on November 6, 2006, became number five in the charts and sold more than 50,000 copies in its first week. This ensured it was the biggest seller for a classical CD in Britain. On HMV's classical charts, the top four albums are now all by Jenkins. The album also reached number 16 in the UK pop charts. Jenkins has also recorded the song "You Are My Miracle" as a duet with Vittorio Grigolo for his debut album In The Hands of Love in 2006. In November 2006 she performed live before The Queen at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, singing a song written specially for the Queen's 80th birthday, and joining fellow Welsh singer James Fox in the final verse of "Anthem" from the musical Chess. On December 23, 2006 Jenkins appeared as a guest and performer on ITV's Parkinson show, where she sang the Welsh national anthem informally during her interview and a Christmas song backed by the Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir and a brass band.

Dame Vera Lynn has dubbed Jenkins the new "Forces Sweetheart", a nickname given to Lynn during World War II, for her visits to entertain troops after the Iraq invasion. In both 2005 and 2006, she spent Christmas entertaining troops in Iraq. Jenkins is also an ambassador for Montblanc pens and gifts.

2007present: Rejoice:
In April 2007, Jenkins made her first appearance on the British young people's Sunday Times Rich List which ranked her as the eighty-third richest young person in Britain with an estimated wealth of 6 million. As of the end of 2006, she is estimated to have sold about 2 million records since her debut in 2004.
She made a cameo appearance in two episodes of Emmerdale on May 16 and 17, 2007, which saw her opening the village pageant.[20] In July 2007, Jenkins performed live on Saving Planet Earth on BBC One, to raise money for the BBC Wildlife Fund and later that month a special concert starring Jenkins was held at Margam Park in south Wales. It was entitled Katherine In The Park and saw Jenkins perform alongside Paul Potts and Juan Diego Florez. Jenkins extended a personal invitation to Potts to sing "Nessun Dorma" at the concert. On August 12, 2007 Jenkins appeared on ITV's Britain's Favourite View where she nominated Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsula in Wales to be voted as Britain's favourite view. She took cameras on a tour of the bay and commented that the location has great sentimental value to her. In September Jenkins catwalk modeled at Naomi Campbell's Fashion Relief event for charity in a Julien MacDonald dress which was then bought by Philip Green for 10,000 and on October 21, 2007 she sang "Time to Say Goodbye" with Andrea Bocelli on the Strictly Come Dancing results show.

Jenkins' fifth album, entitled Rejoice, is due to be released in November 2007. The album contains a mix of classical and pop music in which some songs have been written specially for her. Two of the songs are written by Take That's Gary Barlow whom she is also due to go on tour with. Jenkins has also teamed up with Darcey Bussell, who have organised to stage a song and dance production to pay tribute to the stars which have inspired them which include Madonna and Judy Garland. With a 1 million budget, the show is due to be launched in Manchester in November and is entitled Viva la Diva. As part of the preparation for the show, Jenkins has learned to tap dance and has spent eight hours a week in dance studios learning choreography and running three miles a day to get fit.

Personal life:
Jenkins has one sister. Her father, Selwyn Jenkins, died of cancer when she was a teenager, and she has remarked on missing him in her album liner notes.
She was in a relationship for four years with songwriter and former Worlds Apart boy band singer Steve Hart. However, they kept details of their relationship private, and were rarely seen in public together. Jenkins confirmed the couple had split in November 2006, so that she could concentrate on her career.
