MIAMI (July 24, 2007) Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Vocalist Jason Pritchett proves that not only does America have talent, but so does Carnival Cruise LinesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ entertainment cast. Pritchett, the lead male production show singer on the cruise ship Carnival Spirit, is a current top 20 finalist on the NBC hit TV show Ã¢â‚¬Å“AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Got Talent.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Pritchett, of Kansas City, Mo., performs lead male vocals during two lavish and exhilarating production shows each week on board the 2,124-passenger Carnival Spirit, which is currently operating seven-day Alaska cruises through mid-September. The two high-energy revues named Ã¢â‚¬Å“SROÃ¢â‚¬Â (Standing Room Only) and Ã¢â‚¬Å“High Spirits,Ã¢â‚¬Â combine the vocal artistry of Pritchett and female lead singer Stephanie Bell, with a cast of highly talented dancers, elaborate sets and costumes, and show-stopping special effects.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We strive to find truly talented vocal performers for our production shows, which are a highlight of the cruise vacation experience,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Roger Blum, CarnivalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s vice president of cruise programming. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Jason certainly personifies the exceptional talent our guests can look forward to when sailing with us, and all of his friends here at Carnival are cheering him on.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Following its Alaska season, the Carnival Spirit will shift to San Diego to operate a series of eight-day Mexican Riviera cruises through spring 2008. Pritchett is scheduled to perform on the Carnival Spirit through September.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Got Talent,Ã¢â‚¬Â produced by FremantleMedia North America and Simon CowellÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s SYCO TV, airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EDT on NBC.
