Katherine Maria Jenkins OBE (born 29 June 1980) is a Welsh lyric mezzo-soprano singer and songwriter. She is a classical-crossover singer who performs across a spectrum of operatic arias, popular songs, musical theatre and hymns.

She recorded a cover of Bring Me to Life for her 2009 album, Believe. This is what Katherine had to say about recording the cover:

Vin1.jpg I'd mentioned that I wanted to try Evanescence's Bring Me to Life and David [Foster] (producer of Believe) said 'you can't sing that'. I came out there questioning my vocal abilities. I'm just not used to being told that. I went home that night and I just thought to myself 'you have to pull yourself together, he's worked with so many incredible artists you have to step up the plate.' I did talk myself round and I went in there the next day on a mission. It's good to be pushed sometimes – and I proved him wrong! Vin2.jpg


Katherine decided to change the guitar-led and percussive original version and instead, "make it more orchestral with the percussion coming from the strings." Alfred Hickling of The Guardian gave a mixed review of Jenkins' cover, calling it "histrionic." However, a writer of BBC Online chose her version of the song as a highlight on the album. On October 23, 2009, the song was available for digital download as the second single from Believe. On November 23, 2011, she sang the song live at the Leicester Square station in London.
