Carly Rae Jepsen to Perform First Free Carnival LIVE Concert

Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum, singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen, who has sold more than 20 million singles worldwide, will perform a free concert aboard Carnival Splendor in February 2018, as part of the Carnival LIVE Concert Series.

The concert marks the first time the cruise line is collaborating with Universal Music Group and Brands (UMGB), the brand strategy and partnership division of Universal Music Group, Carnival Cruise Line said.

The concert is a departure from previous Carnival LIVE performances in that it is free and open to all guests sailing on Carnival Splendor's February 17, 2018, seven-day voyage, the cruise line noted. The concert will take place on Carnival Splendor's Lido Deck February 18 while the ship is at sea during a week-long Mexican Riviera cruise that operates round-trip from Long Beach, CA. The voyage includes a day-long call at Puerto Vallarta and two days at Cabo San Lucas.

Jepsen also starred as the Pink Lady, "Frenchy," in FOX's four-time Emmy award winning musical GREASE: LIVE and most recently voiced the character of Odette in the animated movie "LEAP!". "LEAP!" also featured Jepsen's new song "Cut To The Feeling."
