She will perform live at the theme park's Music Plaza on July 14, the last night of the summer series, Universal Orlando announced Tuesday.

Cosgrove has released a solo album called "Sparks Fly." She also recorded the theme song to "iCarly" called “Leave It All to Me” and other tunes for the show.

Feel the synergy moment: Cosgrove was the voice of Margo in the animated movie, “Despicable Me,” which will soon have a Universal Studios attraction based on its characters. Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, a motion simulator, entered "technical rehearsal" recently, although an official opening date has not been released.

Other upcoming Summer Concert Series performers include ZZ Top and 3 Doors Down (June 16), Josh Turner (June 23), Al Green (June 30) and Lupe Fiasco (July 7). The shows, which begin at 8 p.m., are included in regular theme-park admission.
