Best known for her unique interpretations of popular songs, operatic arias and hymns, singer Katherine Jenkins will embrace a new genre this fall when the multi-million selling mezzo-soprano releases her first Christmas album, This is Christmas. This will be the ninth studio album from Jenkins and features 10 newly recorded holiday classics. For this upcoming collection, Jenkins unique vocals can be heard singing traditional holiday tunes from around the world as well as a number of contemporary favorites including "Away In A Manger", "Hark The Herald Angels Sing", "Deck The Halls", and "Come What May", featuring Placido Domingo. "These holiday songs bring back such wonderful memories for me of times spent with family and loved ones", says Jenkins. "I have always hoped that one day I d have the opportunity to record a Christmas album and I can t wait to share my interpretations of these songs with everyone".

Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins' first official holiday album sounds exactly like what one would expect from the reigning queen of the classical crossover charts. Lush, languid, and lovingly orchestrated, the succinct, ten-track This Is Christmas is certainly bereft of surprises, catering to the comforts of the season by sticking with the standards ("Hark the Herald Angels Sing," "Deck the Halls," "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)," "Away in a Manger"), despite tossing in a sugar plum-encrusted curve ball with a swooning rendition of "Come What May" from Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge. Throughout it all, Jenkins further cements her reputation as one of the 21st century's vocal pop greats, instilling each familiar melody, whether it be sacred ("O Come O Come Emmanuel") or silly ("Santa Baby") with the warmth of a thousand fireplaces.
