VE Day Concert with Katherine Jenkins

May 8, 2020

British Forces Foundation Trustee Katherine Jenkins OBE will be performing behind closed doors at the Royal Albert Hall for VE Day 75 Commemorations today boosting the morale of millions of people.

The half-hour concert will be streamed to audiences around the world via YouTube at 6pm BST – www.royalalberthall.com/ve75. It follows on from Katherine’s successful at home lockdown concerts which have amassed over 2 million streams to date.

Katherine said: “I’m excited that we can still come together, albeit virtually, for a tribute of wartime songs and musical memories from London’s most iconic concert venue. The Royal Albert Hall will be seen like never before – empty, isolated and yet still breathtakingly magnificent!”

In this, her 46th appearance at the Hall, Katherine Jenkins will sing wartime favourites including ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’ and ‘We’ll Meet Again’; the latter performed as a virtual duet with Dame Vera Lynn. The timeless song, featuring the lyrics, ‘I know we’ll meet again some sunny day’, epitomised the emotions of the war and brought people hope and a sense of togetherness. Today, they ring true for families around the world separated from loved ones at this time of crisis.
