Michael Stewart/FilmMagicQueen Latifah is taking on a new, seaworthy role.
Carnival Cruises announced on Thursday that the Grammy-Award winning actress has been chosen to christen its newest ship, Carnival Horizon.
In addition to christening the huge ship, Latifah will also participate in the ship’s official naming ceremony and appear in a special showcase entitled, Lip Sync Battle: Horizon. The on-board showcase is described as an “authentic shipboard reproduction” of the popular Paramount Network series Lip Sync Battle.
The christening, as well as the accompanying gala, will be held on the Carnival Horizon in New York City on May 23, 2018.
This is the latest gig for Latifah, who currently stars on Lee Daniels‘ FOX series Star.
