Meet Katherine Jenkins: Why the 'Dancing With the Stars' hopeful missed 'Good Morning America'Add to Favorites | Dancing With the Stars
Ultimately, she didn't go to Afghanistan after all.
"I would have loved to have been at the announcement but as a supporter of military men and women around the world, it was very important to me that I keep my word and be in Afghanistan to entertain the troops," she said in a statement. "However, due to technical problems with the plane, I was unable to make it there this time ... but this will not stop me from going again in the future! Via the Internet, I have learnt about the other contestants and my dance partner and I am thrilled. I cannot wait to take part in a program I have long admired."
Katherine, who is partnered with Mark Ballas for the show, has released seven studio albums, six of which have hit No. 1 in the classical charts.
