As the Classical Brits returns after a five-year hiatus, and Katherine Jenkins re-signs to Decca, the future of classical music has never looked brighter.
Naturally, the revival of classical music is ushering in a spate of new, boundary-pushing artists. Leading the charge, and following in the footsteps of Jenkins, is Jane Maria.
However, Jane Maria is not your average opera singer. Born in China, the singer has overcome countless hurdles in order to be recognised around the world, and yet she has succeeded at every stage.
Combining opera, traditional Chinese folk song and contemporary pop and RnB on her forthcoming album, the lead track, ‘Casta Diva’ (from Bellini’s opera, Norma), sees Jane interpreting the aria with impeccable style, showcasing her spine-tingling soprano voice.
Now, Jane Maria is on a mission to become one of the first Chinese artists to grace the UK charts. With her superhuman work-ethic and astounding talent, it seems like there’s no time like the present to conquer the UK market.
