Universal Orlando's 2017 Mardi Gras celebration continues this weekend with a performance by Latin pop singer Yandel on Saturday, March 4th and international icon Olivia Newton-John on Sunday, March 5th.
Yandel started his musical career in 1995 and has been the recipient of numerous awards including two Latin Grammy Awards. Some of his most recent hits include "Nunca me Olvides" and "Encantadora", from his latest album Dangerous.

With a career spanning over five decades with more than 100 million albums sold, Olivia's successes include four Grammys, numerous Country Music, American Music, Billboard and People's Choice Awards, an Emmy Award, ten no.1 hits and more than 15 top 10 singles. Olivia was also ranked no.20 on Billboard's Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Artists.

Universal Orlando's Mardi Gras celebration continues daily through March 25. The celebration includes a uniquely themed nightly parade featuring festive Mardi Gras floats - complete with New Orleans-inspired music, dozens of colorful dancers and stilt performers, and more than one million beads. Guests can also enjoy authentic New Orleans-style cuisine at The French Quarter Courtyard and performances by bands pulled straight from Bourbon Street. And for select nights during the event, guests can enjoy performances by nationally-recognized musical acts.
