Britain’s best-selling classical artist of the last twenty five years, Katherine Jenkins OBE has released her latest album, Guiding Light. The release is also accompanied by the announcement of Katherine’s new 2019 tour An Evening With Katherine Jenkins.

For Katherine, the new album represents the culmination of a deeply emotional journey which began when her beloved father, Selwyn, died and found a new path when she became a mother. It is an album which speaks of life, hope, acceptance and a universal spirituality, and for Katherine there is a sense of a greater purpose to her performance.

The album includes fifteen brand new tracks featuring Katherine’s personal favourites new and old; from the time honoured Make Me A Channel of Your Peace and Morning Has Broken to covers of Stormzy’s Blinded By Your Grace and Never Enough from The Greatest Showman, alongside original material including Xander’s Song, written for the newest addition to her family, her son born last year.

The Welsh mezzo-soprano says, “I have a life now I don’t think I ever expected to have,” Jenkins says. “I am very happy, very blessed and I feel incredibly grateful. I feel whole new layers of emotion which have really taken me by surprise and made me feel like I have found myself, found my true voice.”

Katherine will be touring new album, Guiding Light this April and May, performing eighteen English dates, alongside concerts in Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin, plus Cardiff and Llandudno in her native Wales. She will be joined by one of the UK’s most versatile orchestras, The London Concert Orchestra, under Musical Director Anthony Inglis for the majority of the tour. The orchestra can be heard regularly at the Barbican, Royal Festival Hall and The Royal Albert Hall, providing audiences with an eclectic repertoire from popular classics and opera, to hits from films and musicals. The London Concert Orchestra has worked with Katherine for the last two years in her series of hugely popular Christmas concerts.
