Mezzo soprano opera singer Katherine Jenkins has left Universal Classics & Jazz for an exclusive worldwide partnership with Warner Music Entertainment (WME), a division of Warner Music Group.

Jenkins and her management company Bandana Management will work with WME on her career, sharing revenue across a "broad creative and commercial mix." The deal will cover recorded music as well as other revenue streams such as sponsorship and merchandise.

The first release under the 360-degree deal with WME will be an album recorded with Grammy-winning American producer David Foster, who has previously worked with Michael Buble, Josh Groban, Seal and Celine Dion.

The new Katherine Jenkins Webstore will offer a one-stop-shop for fans, featuring exclusive content, merchandise and concert tickets.

"Warner Music continues to evolve our partnerships with our acts, offering them an expanding menu of services and developing new ways for them to reach a wide spectrum of audiences," said Warner Music Europe president John Reid in a statement. "WME's ability to create diverse entertainment experiences for all formats and platforms across a range of genres makes the label the perfect home for Katherine's multifaceted, highly flexible talent.

"By more closely aligning the interests of artist and label we can take an holistic approach to building on her massive success and broadening her relationship with her ever-expanding global fan-base."

Sources at Warner Music added that reports of a $10 million deal were inaccurate and didn't reflect the reality of the partnership.

Warner Music Entertainment president Conrad Withey said: "We are very excited about the myriad content and marketing possibilities created by this type of extended collaboration with a star of Katherine's stature. We look forward to taking her popularity to new heights on both sides of the Atlantic."

Jenkins, who has released five albums including four classical chart toppers in the U.K., said she was "thrilled" that the new partnership will give her the opportunity to work with David Foster. The Welsh opera singer is also the only female artist ever to win two consecutive classical Brit awards.

Under a separate agreement, on Nov. 10 WME will release the DVD of "Viva La Diva," the musical and dancing collaboration with prima ballerina Darcey Bussell.

"Sacred Arias," Jenkins' final album under the Universal deal, is released today (Oct. 20) in the U.K.
