"I bought this after thoroughly enjoying Katherine's "Live at Llangollen" DVD. The girl has gained quite a following based, I fear, as much on her stunning beauty as on her voice. The looks have made her a poster girl for Mont Blanc, while the voice has gotten some bad press ("Opera News") which is, to an extent, I think, a bit unfair. Katherine is an entertainer who uses classical music as her vehicle, not an opera singer. A younger, prettier, Sarah Brightman, whom no one would think of holding to a much different standard. (And though one is soprano and the other mezzo, they sing many of the same numbers).
I liked it...not as well produced as the previous above named offering, but still quite good. Katherine benefits from a "home field advantage", as the audience obviously loved her as their own. And she loved them back; the sing-alongs of patriotic music really worked. If Katherine is no opera singer, Juan Diego Flores, her tenor-of-the-evening, sure is...excellent contribution.
All-in-all, five stars. Don't expect "profound", but do expect to be well entertained by a gorgeous girl making the best use of the voice God gave her."

"Entertaining, and wonderful music from a rising star. Gotta love the fact that her voice is only surpassed by her beauty and wonderful personality. Love the boots!"
