New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Britain's best-selling classical artist of the last 25 years, Katherine Jenkins OBE today announces the release of her new album, Guiding Light, out November 30 via Decca Records/Universal Music Canada.
For Jenkins, the new album represents the culmination of a deeply emotional journey which began when her beloved father, Selwyn, died and she found a new path when she became a mother. It is an album which speaks of life, hope, acceptance and a universal spirituality. For Jenkins, there is a sense of a greater purpose to her performance.

The LP includes 15 brand-new tracks featuring her personal favourites new and old; from the time honoured "Make Me a Channel of Your Peace" and "Morning Has Broken" to covers of Stormzy's "Blinded By Your Grace" and "Never Enough" from The Greatest Showman, alongside original material including "Xander's Song", written for the newest addition to her family, her son born earlier this year.

The Welsh mezzo-soprano says, "I have a life now I don't think I ever expected to have. I am very happy, very blessed and I feel incredibly grateful. I feel whole new layers of emotion which have really taken me by surprise and made me feel like I have found myself, found my true voice. My voice has changed. This album is the most intimate album I have ever made. It's a mindful collection of songs. I'm not trying to prove anything, I'm not trying to show how many notes I can hit, I just want to take people to a place of emotion and reflection - to touch hearts and souls."

Cherished as one of Britain's all-time favourite singers, last year Jenkins was officially crowned The No.1 Selling Classical Music Artist of the Last 25 Years by Classic FM, and made chart history when her last album, Celebration became her 12th UK Classical No.1 album in 12 years. These record-breaking achievements cemented Jenkins' position as the world's most prolific artist in UK Classical chart history.

As one of the UK's greatest musical exports, multi award-winning Jenkins has performed all over the world: for the Pope, for Presidents, and she is a favourite of the Royal Family, having been invited to sing "God Save The Queen" at Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, as well as at Her Majesty's Coronation Concerts at Buckingham Palace, and more recently, by special request at Her Majesty's 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle. In 2014 she was awarded an OBE at the New Year's Honours List for her services to music and charity.

Jenkins has embarked upon numerous sold out tours and duetted with such names as Placido Domingo, Andrea Bocelli, José Carreras, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Bryn Terfel, Rolando Villazon, and Il Divo, amongst others. Last year, she wowed audiences and critics alike with her stellar performance as Julie Jordan in Lonny Price's semi-staged production of Carousel at the London Coliseum.

Katherine Jenkins - Guiding Light:
A Gaelic blessing
Eternal Father
Nearer my God to Thee
Jealous of the Angels
Make me a channel of your piece
Morning has broken
Never enough
Blinded by your Grace
God bless the broken road
To where you are
Come thou fount of every blessing
Peace in the Valley
Homeward bound
Xander's Song
