Katherine Jenkins dedicates song to best friend at gig

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins showed her support for her best friend by dedicating a song to the two-time cancer survivor at a concert.

The 33-year-old opera star took to the stage at Audley End House in Essex, England to perform as part of the stately home venue's annual Summer Concerts series and singled out her friend, Polly Noble, when she sang Judy Garland's classic track 'Over the Rainbow', reported Daily Mirror.

The pair met in 2001 when Jenkins became Noble's singing teacher and the mezzo-soprano even wrote the foreword to her friend's book, The Cancer Journey, which chronicled her miraculous recovery after she was diagnosed with the disease twice before she turned 28.

In a post on her Twitter page after the concer, Noble posted, "Having Katherine Jenkins dedicate 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' to me was a phenomenal surprise! Thank you.
