A success story at the Classical Brits Awards in 2006 (bbc.co.uk)
Dream result for classic Katherine
expressed her delight at winning the Classical Brit Awards' Album of the Year for the second year running.
The 25-year-old singer said at the awards ceremony at London's Royal Albert Hall last night: "I have to say I'm absolutely stunned. I didn't expect to win it last year, to win it two years in a row - I'm absolutely gobsmacked. I called my album Living A Dream and that's exactly what I'm doing right now. I'm loving every minute of this."
Jenkins dedicated the award to her family, many of whom were in the audience, and paid special tribute to her late father Selwyn, who died 10 years ago.
Her album has sold 450,000 copies so far and the win makes her the first female artist to win two consecutive Classical Brits. Last year she also scooped the best album award for her debut, Premiere, and she is now the UK's best-selling classical artist of all time.
The former teacher brought a touch of Hollywood glamour to the awards by wearing a £75,000 fuschia pink dress, a copy of one Marilyn Monroe wore in the 1953 film How To Marry A Millionaire. The jewel-encrusted Kruszyncka gown was set off by £250,000 worth of Bulgari diamonds.

You're perfect, yes, it's true. But without me, you're only you.
