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

The concert marks the first time Carnival Cruise Line is collaborating with Universal Music Group and Brands.

While the concert is a departure from previous Carnival LIVE performances in that it is free and open to all travelers on Carnival Splendor’s Feb. 17 seven-day voyage, it continues the line’s mission of bringing the best live entertainment to the seas.

The concert will take place on Carnival Splendor’s Lido Deck Feb. 18 while the ship is at sea during a week-long Mexican Riviera cruise that operates round-trip from Long Beach, California. The itinerary includes a day at Puerto Vallarta and two days at Cabo San Lucas.

Jepsen broke onto the music scene in 2012 with her major label debut Kiss that included the smash hit 'Call Me Maybe' which climbed to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in more than 47 countries and earned her Grammy Award nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year.

After earning rave reviews starring in the Broadway production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s 'Cinderella,' Jepsen released her next album, E·MO·TION, which received critical acclaim and featured the Billboard Top 40 hit 'I Really Like You.'

Jepsen also starred as 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!' featured Jepsen’s 'Cut To The Feeling,' which has been hailed by critics as a top song of 2017, showing up on year-end lists for Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, Noisey and more.
