For the first music video from her new album 'Home Sweet Home', mezzo-soprano and Classic FM presenter Katherine Jenkins has decided to make us weep. *Reaches for tissue*
KJ's new single, 'Dreaming Of The Days', is based on Ludovico Einaudi's piano classic 'I Giorni', and the video will make you want to stand in the rain so no-one can see your tears.
It begins with some kids gambolling merrily in a park
No big deal. They muck about with one of those View-Masters that people used to have in the '80s. Remember them?
But who was that in the View-Master?
Our favourite Welsh mezzo!
When she's not presenting radio shows for us, she's belting out her new songs in glamorous locales. We love Katherine.
Anyway, so these two kids grow up
They get together, they move apart (you can tell because she is in a taxi and looks all distraught). He gives her the View-Master, which is nice. Katherine keeps singing. Everyone is happy-sad.
Meanwhile, Katherine is in some sort of beach villa
Wonder if there's a swim-up bar?
Then they get even older
They obviously drifted apart, because this woman is now on her own and looking like her life is unfulfilled in general (you can tell because she's walking aimlessly on the streets and looking into shop windows).
Wait, THAT'S THE VIEW-MASTER
No, Katherine. No. We can't handle it.
And THAT'S THE GUY
Everyone is so happy. We are so crying.
If you have the emotional strength, watch the whole thing here:
