Katherine Jenkins To Sing 'Hen Wlad' at Wembley
Following recent news that the Welsh National Anthem will be sung at Wembley, the FA has recruited mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins to lead the vocals of 'Mae hen wlad fy nhadau' on May 17th.
Jenkins is a hugely successful singer, and regularly leads the anthem for Welsh rugby internationals. However, many will feel her voice is not ideally suited to leading 25000 Cardiff City supporters.
Jenkins told icwales.co.uk:
'It`s a fantastic honour for me to sing our national anthem anywhere in the world, but to sing at an FA Cup final at Wembley is going to be something really special,'
'Who will I support? Who will all right-minded and passionate Welsh sports fans across our country support that day?'
Still it could be a whole lot worse, God Save The Queen will be led by Lesley Garrett.
