RETURNING TO ‘THE HOME OF CLASSICAL MUSIC’ AS SHE CELEBRATES 10th ANNIVERSARY IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY
Today, 20th January 2014, Katherine Jenkins (OBE), announced that she has renewed her relationship with the world’s No.1 Classical label, Decca Records – signing a deal which will see the nation’s favourite songstress release her next album in the autumn of 2014.
This significant signing marks the beginning of a new era for the classical artist.
Katherine made the announcement at an intimate brunch at The Ritz to celebrate her 10th anniversary in the music industry.
Since 2004, Katherine has become one of the most successful classical crossover artists ever, selling in excess of 8 million albums to date and is one of the most in-demand classical concert artists in the world. In 2013 alone she toured in South Africa, China, Japan, The U.S., Abu Dhabi and across continental Europe.
Her popularity has earned Katherine numerous accolades including two Classical Brits for ‘Album of the Year’ as well as receiving an OBE for services to music and charity in the 2014 New Year Honours List.
Katherine Jenkins said: “It feels not only very exciting but very special to be returning to Decca – a decade after they first signed me and to many of the people who helped launch my career. It amazes me to think that this will be my 10th album and for this, it seems the perfect place to be going ‘home’ to.”
