Katherine Jenkins OBE has cause for ‘Celebration’ as her new album reaches the Top 10 of the pop charts.  ‘Celebration’ will be her 12th Classical No.1 album in 12 years – making her the most successful artist in UK classical chart history.

Entering the official UK Album charts at No.7, ‘Celebration’ positioned ahead of Justin Bieber and Jess Glynne and just behind Beyonce, Prince, Adele and Sia.

Katherine’s patriotic album is a joyous collection of the greatest music from the United Kingdom, combining 7 new songs with 13 favourites selected by Katherine from her hit recordings.  It includes such beloved tunes as ‘Rule Britannia’, ‘Jerusalem’, ‘I Vow To Thee My Country’, ‘Ae Fond Kiss’, ‘Land Of My Fathers’ and also a full rendition of the national anthem in its rarely-heard, three-verse form.

‘Celebration’ is also Katherine’s first album since having a baby and opens with the poignant song ‘This Mother’s Heart’.

Katherine will be performing, by request, at the Queen’s birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle in May, and will be giving her own celebratory concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and Hampton Court Palace in June.

Cherished as one of Britain’s favourite singers, Welsh mezzo soprano Katherine Jenkins OBE has achieved meteoric success as the world’s most prolific classical crossover artist, her studio albums have sold in excess of eight million copies and gone platinum around the world.  Katherine was awarded an OBE at the 2014 New Year’s Honours List for her services to music and charity.
