The Minnesota Zoo has added three more acts to its Music in the Zoo annual concert series, including pop star Carly Rae Jepsen, the Star Tribune reports.

Jepsen, who has recorded such hits as "Call Me Maybe," "This Kiss" and "Good Time" with Owatonna-based group Owl City -- will play the zoo's Weesner Family Ampitheater along with The Wanted on Aug. 18.

A former top five finalist on "Canadian Idol" and Grammy nominee, Jepsen appeared at the Mall of America last fall to perform a song from the soundtrack of "Fun Size" in a fan event that also featured the film's stars, Victoria Justice and Thomas Mann.

The zoo also announced that Chris Isaak will play the venue July 22 and the John Butler Trio is scheduled for Aug. 4.

Tickets for Jepsen, Isaak and the John Butler Trio all go on sale Saturday.

The artists join a list of talent to be featured at the zoo's annual summer concert series that already includes Brian Wilson, Pat Benatar, Cheap Trick, Joan Baez and Melissa Etheridge. The series also recently added Lyle Lovett to its slate.
