The biggest selling classical artist of the century, Katherine Jenkins OBE, released her 14th studio album, Cinema Paradiso in April via Decca Records.

The release is accompanied by the announcement of the Katherine Jenkins 2021 UK tour. Comprised of fifteen iconic tracks, Cinema Paradiso is a collection of unforgettable songs from some of the world’s best loved movie moments including Moon River from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Pinocchio’s When You Wish Upon A Star, Tonight from West Side Story, featuring fellow Welsh star, Luke Evans, as well as themes from Schindler’s List, Lord Of The Rings and Dances With Wolves.

Katherine says, “I’ve always loved movie soundtracks. I wanted to create an iconic movie moment with this record, all the best film musical themes that we know and love, all together on one album. The last few albums I’ve made have been inspired by what’s happening in my own world. This one in particular was inspired by the things that were going on around me. Having played my first movie role last year, it felt like a natural transition for me.”

Cherished as one of Britain’s all-time favourite singers, in 2017 Katherine was officially crowned The number one selling Classical Music Artist of the Last 25 Years by Classic FM, and made chart history when her last album Guiding Light, became her thirteenth UK Classical number one album, further cementing Katherine’s position as the world’s most prolific artist in UK Classical chart history.

As one of the UK’s greatest musical exports, multi-award winning Katherine has performed all over the world, for the Pope, for Presidents and is a favourite of the Royal Family, having been invited to sing God Save The Queen at Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, perform at Her Majesty’s Coronation Concerts at Buckingham Palace and by special request at Her Majesty’s 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle. She has embarked upon numerous sold out tours and duetted with such names as Andrea Bocelli, José Carreras, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Bryn Terfel, Rolando Villazon, and Il Divo, amongst others.

Katherine was awarded an OBE at the 2014 New Year’s Honours List for her services to music and charity and wowed audiences and critics alike with her stellar performance as Julie Jordan in Lonny Price’s semi-staged production of Carousel at the London Coliseum in 2017.
