Dubai, November 8, 2008
Opera star Katherine Jenkins, the only singer in musical history to simultaneously hold the number 1, 2 and 3 positions in the classical charts will be performing live in Dubai at the invitation of Luxury brand Montblanc.
Katherine has already established herself as one of the biggest names in classical music with her albums 'Premiere, Second Nature and Living a Dream,' which made her the fastest selling classical artist ever.
The private and exclusive event will take place on November 12 to celebrate Montblanc’s expansion plans in the Middle East, said a company official.
“Katherine is one of our international brand ambassadors and subscribes to the brand’s commitment to arts and culture. We are delighted that she will be performing in Dubai to a select audience comprising our elite clientele and regional partners,” said Joe Nahhas, regional brand director of Montblanc.
He noted that Montblanc identified Katherine’s astounding talent and youthful beauty.
“Her individual style and personal values mirror the cornerstones of the Montblanc brand and she is the face for Montblanc watches, leather, fine jewellery and writing instruments worldwide,” Nahhas remarked.
"It seems no major event is complete without an appearance by the Welsh singer. She has performed at Live8 and has won two consecutive awards for best album at the Classic Brits."
Montblanc is a truly diversified luxury brand offering jewellery, watches, writing instruments, leather, eyewear and fragrance.
Katherine is redefining classical crossover, and is pioneering a new genre of opera superstar. She is not only glamorous, but also very down to earth, and accessible and caring as a human being, he added.
Born in Neath, South Wales 26 years ago, Katherine has held sell out performances in prestigious venues such as Sydney Opera House, Albert Hall London and Millennium Stadium Cardiff.
