Mary Lambert, who rose to fame in 2012 while juggling multiple food service jobs, is best known for her heart-wrenching work on the marriage equality anthem “Same Love” from the Grammy-winning Macklemore & Ryan Lewis album, The Heist. Writing and singing the hook to “Same Love” led to two Grammy nominations for “Song of The Year” and “Album of The Year,” and her pop career flourished after signing to Capitol Records. Her confessional tongue-in-cheek single, “Secrets,” shot to No 1 on the Billboard Dance charts, and was certified RIAA Gold in 2015. She released “Welcome to the Age of My Body,” an EP with the Top 20 Adult Contemporary hit, “She Keeps Me Warm,” and a full-length album, “Heart on My Sleeve,” which The New York Times called “refreshing and severely personal.”
“We are so proud to be bringing back the Saturday In The Park event this year,” said Dustina Haase-Lanier, Vice-President of Vancouver USA Pride/Saturday in the Park & Entertainment Co-Chair.”We have all been waiting so long to come back in person and to have a headliner of Mary’s caliber is just amazing!”
