Album Remarks & Appraisals:
2009 release from the Welsh vocalist, her seventh album overall. The first six albums of Katherine Jenkins career have already been extraordinary in every sense of the word. Under the stewardship of producer David Foster (credited with the careers of Josh Groban, Michael Buble and most recently Seal's comeback), Jenkins has made her most ambitious album to date. Katherine spent the spring of 2009 in LA at Foster's studio, recording Believe. Together, they have produced a record of epic proportions that is set to take Katherine to new heights of success around the world. With a broad mix of contemporary and traditional repertoire the record not only delivers for existing fans but will also broaden her audience across the globe. From the haunting Sarah McLachlan song, 'Angel', through to a stunning working of Evanescence's 'Bring Me To Life', the mezzo soprano's unique vocal interpretations bind seamlessly with Foster's arrangement and production. 12 tracks.
