An intimate evening with Mary Lambert
Presented by David Friend Recital Hall at David Friend Recital Hall
October 5, 2013 - September 5, 2014
As a performer, Lambert exemplifies the traditions of a singer/songwriter while melding a background in spoken-word. After the powerful body-image poem “I Know Girls (Body Love)” went viral without any promotion, her debut album Letters Don't Talk firmly established Mary as a formidable unsigned artist. This status was cemented when the lesbian singer-songwriter paired up with the multi-platinum selling artists Macklemore and Ryan Lewis to help write and sing their revolutionary single, “Same Love”. The track, an honoring of same-sex marriage, has led Mary to tour nationally with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and allowed her to reach millions by performing live on MTV Video Music Awards, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, VH1, and The Colbert Report. “Same Love” has reached platinum status in the US, peaking at number 11 on The Billboard Hot 100. In August of 2013, Lambert released her version of the hit song entitled “She Keeps Me Warm".
