'We'll Meet Again' Opera Voice Katherine Jenkins Performs Timeless Classic

In a beautiful and heartfelt rendition of ‘We’ll Meet Again,’ opera singer Katherine Jenkins performs this timeless classic with the help of people all over Great Britain.

“We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through, just like you always do
'Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away
So will you please say hello, to the folks that I know
Tell them I won't be long, they'll be happy to know
That as you saw me go, I was singing this song”

This performance was in honor of the 75th anniversary of VE Day, also known as Victory in Europe Day. This is celebrated on May 8th and marks the anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe.

Katherine Jenkins starts off singing this beautiful and hopeful song in front of Kensington Palace. The song was originally performed by Dame Vera Lynn, who is shown next to Katherine at the beginning of this video. Dame Vera Lynn was a British singer, songwriter, and actress whose musical recordings and performances were enormously popular during the Second World War.

As the song goes on, many people throughout Britain join in the singing. There are school children, nurses, construction workers, military personnel, train conductors, veterinarians, farmers, dentists, and firefighters all joining in with their lovely voices. It is a beautiful thing to see them all coming together as a gesture of thanks to their veterans and in memory of their loved ones. The song holds even more meaning during this time when friends and family cannot be physically close to each other because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“That made me cry but the tears were of happiness and hope,” comments one person on YouTube.

“I like this! I am an American and a great admirer of the British people,” writes another person on YouTube. “I certainly appreciate your stalwart, courageous character and everyone in the western world especially should be thankful for the extreme sacrifice your nation displayed during one of the darkest periods of the last century. I admire your Queen for her unwavering sense of duty and commitment and for her gracious, dignified manner. God Bless.”

We hope you enjoyed this lovely performance of ‘We’ll Meet Again’ and look to the hopeful future when we all will be able to gather together and share in fellowship!
