With more than 100 million records sold, she was recently honored at the 2012 Grammy Awards with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. Throughout the course of her music career, Ross recorded 18 No. 1 hits, including "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "I'm Coming Out," "Upside Down" and "Love Hangover."
Universal Orlando's Mardi Gras combines unparalleled theme park entertainment with an elaborate Mardi Gras parade, dozens of colorfully costumed performers, authentic New Orleans bands, delicious Cajun cuisine and live concerts by some of today's most popular artists.
