Thirteen year old Welsh soprano Charlotte
Read more Church has had a whirlwind year following her multiplatinum debut VOICE OF AN ANGEL. After becoming the youngest artist ever to land the number one album on the classical charts, she then performed for Pope John Paul II, The Prince of Wales, President Clinton and made numerous television appearances. She now returns with her sophomore effort, a self titled album of mostly arias.

"Just Wave Hello", produced by Trevor Horn and written especially for Charlotte, is the Ford television campaign song. It is a beautiful tune featuring an angelic choir and a drum track for a pop feel. "Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer" features the London Welsh Male Voice Choir and shows what her voice is truly capable of, as it soars to breathtaking heights. There is a variety of material also, as Charlotte does a wonderful version of Gershwin's "Summertime" (from 'Porgy and Bess').

Superb playing by the London Symphony Orchestra and excellent arrangements accompany the majestic vocals. Exceeding VOICE OF AN ANGEL, Charlotte Church shines throughout.
