The godmother of the Disney Dream, Jennifer Hudson, will return to sea aboard a cruise ship. However, she will not be rejoining the crew aboard aboard one of the Disney Cruise ships. Today, Carnival Cruise Lines announced their Carnival LIVE Concert Series for 2014 which will bring the best in live music to sea. Carnival revealed that is has nearly 50 performance dates booked for the 2014 concert series including a concert with Jennifer Hudson.
Hudson was in New York City today for Carnival Cruise Lines’ announcement. During the reveal, Hudson, mentioned she “used to work on a cruise ship, a long time ago” and is “excited to be part of this unique concert series that will allow her to interact with her fans in a memorable and intimate setting.”
These concerts will be an additional charge with standard tickets ranging from $20-40. VIP tickets ranging from $100-150 will guarantee a great seat to the performance, a VIP pass, and an exclusive meet and greet opportunity with the performers.
Just a few years ago Jennifer Hudson was on hand to christen the Disney Dream in Port Canaveral.
Before, she was famous she was entertaining guests aboard the Disney Wonder. Here is a video we found on YouTube of Hudson performing at the 2003 Crew Awards.
Jennifer Hudson will play two concerts on back to back nights in Cozumel, Mexico. The concert on June 14th will be aboard the Carnival Breeze and the 15th aboard the Carnival Esctacy.
My initial reaction was wait… WHAT?!?! The godmother of the Disney Dream is partnering with a competing cruise line!!! Sure, it may seem odd to see Jennifer Hudson promoting a concert series for Carnival Cruise Lines, but it is no different then if she were promoting a concert tour on land. Its show business. What did you think about this new partnership?
