MIAMI, FLORIDA - Grammy award-winning musical artist, acclaimed television and film actress, label president, author and entrepreneur, Queen Latifah, is named the godmother to Carnival Cruise Line's newest ship, Carnival Horizon. Latifah will participate in the ship's official naming ceremony, which will be during an invitation-only overnight gala onboard Carnival Horizon in New York City on May 23, 2018.
"With her fun-loving spirit and positive, can-do attitude, Queen Latifah embodies our brand and knows how to 'Choose Fun' in everything she does," said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. "Knowing that she is a long-time supporter of St. Jude and has performed and won 'Lip Sync Battle' made her the ideal candidate to serve as godmother to our newest ship," she added.
"Carnival is an iconic American brand and it's an honor to be named godmother of Carnival Horizon and take part in the event on May 23, honoring the special children of St. Jude – a cause that is very near and dear to my heart," said Latifah.
