The UK’s most successful classical artist of the century, Katherine Jenkins has released the enchanting new single, ‘Home For Christmas’, a heartfelt message of love and togetherness at this magical time of year. An emotional tribute to her beloved homeland this Christmas, the track is the first new music that Katherine has released in over a year and is available HERE.
Katherine says, “The festive season is always my favourite time of the year and for me it’s all about spending time with the people I love and cherish most. I hope this song can bring people together and remind us of what makes Christmas the most special time of year”.
New single, ‘Home For Christmas’ showcases Katherine’s incredible voice alongside special new lyrics to the much loved tune of ‘Hark The Herald Angels Sing’, a refreshing new take on the traditional Christmas Carol. Writing new lyrics for ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ follows in the footsteps of hundreds of years of rich Christmas Carol tradition. Many early carols were inspired by biblical stories and folk traditions, and over the centuries texts have evolved, been adapted, and transformed into the cherished Christmas carols we know and sing today. Charles Wesley (1707–88) had originally written the lyrics as “Hark! how all the Welkin (heaven) rings” which was later adapted by Methodist preacher George Whitfield to the modern version we know today.
Katherine has also recently announced that she will be returning home to Wales for a spectacular ‘Home For Christmas’ Concert on 25th November at the Swansea Arena, with special guests Jack Savoretti, Chloe Flower and Wynne Evans – more surprises to be revealed on the night. Katherine will perform a combination of classical crossover favourites, operatic arias and special Christmas songs in one of the most captivating concerts Swansea has ever seen – tickets available here
Katherine says – “There’s no place like home which is why I am thrilled to bits to be performing at the Swansea Arena. Being back in Wales always makes me want to pull out all the stops. I can’t wait and I would love for you to be a part of it too.”
