Katherine Jenkins is one of the celebrity contestants on Season 14 of ABC's ballroom competition series "Dancing with the Stars" in spring 2012. She joins two-time champ Mark Ballas, who is returning for his 10th season.

Katherine Jenkins is the world's most prolific classical crossover artist. The Welsh mezzo soprano has sold in excess of seven million albums since launching her career in 2004. An internationally recognized figure, at the age of only 31 Jenkins has become an ambassador and inspiration for millions of people around the world.

When she was still only 23, she signed what was said to be the biggest ever UK classical recording deal; she has broken records, becoming the fastest selling mezzo soprano ever, has released eight studio albums, has won two Classical BRIT awards and broken countless records with her albums going platinum around the world.

She has performed with Placido Domingo and Andrea Bocelli, had lunch and performed for the Queen and other members of the Royal Family, as well as for prime ministers and dignitaries around the world. Having recently worked with internationally renowned producers including David Foster and John Shanks, Jenkins' unique and timeless vocals have defined the genre. Known for her interpretations of popular songs, operatic arias and hymns, she is also known for her long-standing work with the British Forces Foundation for which she is a trustee, and has consequently made various trips to Iraq and Afghanistan to entertain the troops. This support for the troops has led her to being referred to as the Forces' Sweetheart.

Cherished as one of Britain's favorite singers, Jenkins has now become one of its greatest musical exports.
