UberDUET: An On-Demand Carpool Acapella

We’re all guilty of bursting into song in the middle of a car ride when our favourite song comes on the radio. So this Saturday, 19 November, we’re bringing you UberDUET, an on-demand event where you and a friend can duet with your driver along with a back-up acapella group in the car!


Request an UberDUET this Sat, 19 November, from 12pm to 4pm for a carpool acapella and a special gift bag for music lovers


To sweeten the experience, you get to win awesome gifts we specially curated for our music-lover riders. Each gift bag includes a Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, 1 year Spotify premium subscription, $50 worth of free Uber rides and an additional chance to win a trip to the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards®, courtesy of Mastercard®!

All you have to do is request from the app, hop inside the car and start singing along to the song “Closer” by The Chainsmokers. Whether you have a professional or shower-standard singing voice, we promise not to judge.
