Fernando Varela was one of the few artists requested to sing at the John Wayne Cancer Institute Event. The opera singer performed a solo and a duet with Katherine Jenkins to “The Prayer.” StarCam’s Jennifer Tapiero was on the red carpet to chat with the celebrities on their way in and got the scoop on what it was like working with Katherine and who some of Fernando’s favorite artists were.

It’s every bit as exciting each time he has the honor. Lately, he has been fortunate enough to feel that level of hype on numerous occasions. Another incredible part of this specific event was the fact that Fernando would be performing with Katherine Jenkins.
“She’s great. I mean, for being as incredible of a star as she is, she’s totally down-to-earth, really nice and just made you feel right at home,” he said.
