Notes & Reviews:

Katherine Jenkins' Italian-language version of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" ("L'Amore Sei Tu"), first performed live at Nostell Priory, West Yorkshire on August 28, 2005, is the first cut on Jenkins' third album 'Living A Dream'. When the album was released in the UK, Katherine held the positions of one, two and three in the classical music chart at the same time along with her first two albums, becoming the only singer to do so.

Third album inside eighteen months from new classical crossover sensation Jenkins follows 2004's 'Second Nature'. Acting for the first time as co-producer, here she tackles a similar mix of fare as before. There are opera arias, including some usually sung by men; classic easy listening and show tunes; Welsh folk and a "classicized" version of Dolly Parton's 'I Will Always Love You', translated into Italian. Universal. 2005

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Katherine Jenkins (mezzo soprano); The Prague Symphony (various instruments); J. Paracelli (guitar); Guillo (keyboards); M. Bold (percussion).

Originally released in Europe in 2005 but not available in the United States until 2009, LIVING A DREAM finds light classical singer Katherine Jenkins in a somewhat pop-oriented mood. The album's signature song is a dramatic version of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," reworked into a near-operatic Italian-language slice of glorious pop melodrama. The rest of the album blends arias and classical material with more familiar pop tunes like "Over the Rainbow" and the World War II anthem "We'll Meet Again."
