After carving a somewhat lucrative niche as a classical crossover artist, award-winning Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins has seemingly gone “pop” for her fifth album, “Rejoice”. Fans can relax, however. Far from attempting a Charlotte Church-style reinvention, Jenkins manages to slide gently and mellifluously into the world of popular music, retaining her trademark operatic vocal style and smooth, unruffled coherence throughout. The slightly arbitrary tracklisting on “Rejoice” mixes up music-theatre standards, modern pop and new material; Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose” nestles comfortably next to evergreens such as “Somewhere” (from West Side Story), classics like Shirley Bassey’s “I Who Have Nothing” and new tracks written by the likes of Steve Mac (Westlife, Toni Braxton), Take That’s Gary Barlow and Simon Franglen (Céline Dion, The Bee Gees). Of these, Barlow’s lush “Viva Tonight” is a highlight, though all are competent enough to add a convincing contemporary veneer to the collection. Far from selling out to the pop market with “Rejoice”, Jenkins has made pop fit into with her own inimitable style. –Danny McKenna.
