Nick Ferrari returns to Classic FM with a new series of our flagship interview programme on Sunday night from 9pm-10pm.
"To be invited by the Queen to sing at the Jubilee and to sing at the Olympics, it's been a really wonderful year to be British." Nick Ferrari welcomed the Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins to Classic FM. Katherine reflected back on her extraordinary year – from Dancing with the Stars in the States to recording her new Christmas album.
When she released her debut album Premiere in 2004 Katherine Jenkins became the fastest selling mezzo-soprano to date.
It kick started her transformation from small town girl to a national sweetheart. Along the way she has been the official mascot for the Welsh rugby team, released seven classical albums, each of which have topped the classical music chart, become a mentor for the ITV show Pop Star to Opera Star and she's even starred in an episode to Doctor Who.
