MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR PRESENTS THE JOY OF SONG WITH KATHERINE JENKINS celebrates the centrality and universality of music in everyday life. Recorded in July 2012 in Salt Lake City, the one-hour musical special features the talents of the 360-member Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Welsh classical and crossover artist Katherine Jenkins, a 2012 finalist on Dancing With the Stars. Jenkins performs a varied repertoire of songs, including "I Could Have Danced All Night," from the Lerner & Loewe musical My Fair Lady; "La Vie En Rose, " the signature song of French singer Edith Piaf; and a powerful and emotional rendition of the Welsh patriotic hymn "Cymru Fach" ("Dearest Wales"). As a special highlight, Jenkins and her Dancing with the Starspartner Mark Ballas perform the paso doble to the music of "Espana Cani" ("Spanish Gypsy Dance"). In addition, short video segments feature recording artists, songwriters and music lovers, including David Foster, explaining the place music holds in their hearts.
