Chopra Joins Growing Roster of Luminaries in Music, Entertainment and Sports with HARMAN Announcement
HARMAN International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, focused on connected technologies for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, announced that actress, singer, producer and philanthropist, Priyanka Chopra, has been named a global brand ambassador for the company’s JBL and Harman Kardon audio brands.
Chopra will participate in a series of marketing initiatives including social media and brand awareness events for JBL and Harman Kardon.
As ambassador of these brands, Chopra will walk the red carpet at the Clive Davis Pre-GRAMMY Gala Salute to Industry Icons with other luminaries as part of this weekend’s GRAMMY celebration.
HARMAN is the official sound of the GRAMMYs and a recipient of three technical awards for its JBL, AKG and Lexicon brands.
“Priyanka Chopra is the epitome of a barrier-breaking performer, bringing her iconic style and grace to everything that she does, from her award-winning entertainment career to her philanthropic work, and reaching fans all over the world. She is a force to be reckoned with and we look forward to working with her to develop innovative and engaging collaborations for our audio brands that are truly unique and first of their kind,” said Ralph Santana, Chief Marketing Officer of HARMAN.
After being crowned Miss World, Chopra made her foray into the entertainment industry and soon catapulted to international stardom. In 2015, Chopra made her American TV debut, making history as the first Indian actress to headline the lead role in an U.S. television series, starring in ABC’s Quantico.
She was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in 2017. Chopra is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and is also involved in a number of philanthropic efforts to promote gender equality and the health and education of children around the world.
“Music brings the world together. It defies boarders, colours and norms, often bridging cultures, genders, and generations. Songs often become symbols of moments throughout our lives, encouraging, inspiring, empowering, and at times, healing us. I’ve long admired the sophistication of Harman Kardon and vibrant energy of JBL, and am honoured to be collaborating with such iconic brands,” said Priyanka Chopra.
Samsung was a global winner of the World Branding Awards 2017-2018, in the Consumer Electronic – Televisions category.
