Carnival Cruise Line has held a charity “Lip Sync Battle” with players from the New Orleans Saints team.
Carnival Dream hosted a charity Lip Sync Battle and two New Orleans Saints players also took part. While the large vessel was docked in New Orleans yesterday Cameron Jordan and Mark Ingram released their Lip Sync talents onboard.
The Jordan and Ingram showed off their skills on stage during the special charity event with an entire production show. Ingram performed to 1980s anthem “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake and Jordan did a performance of Usher’s “Yeah!”.
If you didn’t already know what Lip Sync Battle is then its when contestants go head to head and lip sync to a particular song. Whoever manages to put on a performance never to forget wins.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“Today’s event was a great way to partner with the New Orleans Saints to showcase this fantastic new entertainment choice while also raising money for two worthwhile local charities”
Mark and Cameron were certainly good sports in every sense of the word and many thanks to them for their efforts to help the New Orleans community.”
Although the audience vote was close, in the end it was Jordan who took home the coveted Lip Sync Battle Carnival belt and earned a $10,000 for United Way. Ingram was also a winner, collecting a $5,000 donation to the Mark Ingram Foundation.
Lip Sync Battle which Cruise Hive previously reported on is rolling out across the Carnival fleet in 2017. At the moment the entertainment offering is already on Carnival Freedom, Carnival Breeze, and Carnival Sunshine. The show is also featured onboard Carnival Vista where is debuted in December 2016.
