DWTS 14: Katherine Jenkins

Katherine Jenkins is a Welsh-born lyric mezzo-soprano who performs both classical opera arias and musical theater pop songs.

At 17, she attended the Royal Academy of Music on scholarship and studied Italian, German, French and Russian. She graduated with a music teacher’s diploma and then worked as a freelance singing teacher. She won a modelling competition to become the Face of Wales in 2000.

Universal Classics and Jazz signed her to a six-album deal. Six of her seven studio albums have reached number one. In 2010, she was listed as one of the Top 30 Young Millionaires on the Sunday Times Rich List. Her estimated worth was 11 million pounds.

Jenkins was engaged to Gethin Jones, a Welsh TV presenter, last year, but reportedly broke up with him.
