Following a sold out 2013 event, Indy Pride, Inc., is pleased to announce that the 2014 installment of Girl Pride will feature some very special guests: a Queen of Electro, Luciana, and a rising star, the Grammy-nominated singer/author Mary Lambert.
“I wanted to provide a context of love and heart – that’s sort of my thing.” — Mary Lambert.
Lambert co-wrote and provided vocals for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ two-time Grammy-nominated same-sex equality anthem, “Same Love,” which went on to sell over 2 million copies in the U.S. alone and peaked at number 11 on The Billboard Hot 100. Her musical style is often compared to Adele, Tori Amos, Bon Iver, and James Blake, with topics that run through her early childhood traumas: sexual abuse, body image, bipolar disorder, drug abuse, homosexuality and religion. But it was the revolutionary single, “Same Love”, that allowed Mary’s voice to reach millions through live performances on The MTV Video Music Awards, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, VH1, The Colbert Report, and of course very recently on The Grammys.
“Live your life, every minute of it, never settle for second best.” — Luciana Caporaso
Luciana has taken that statement and turned it into a motto, a guideline with which she attacks life, love, and career. She is, without a doubt, a powerhouse, standing on the forefront of the Electro-House/-nuWave movement.
Her start as an artist began with Bodyrox and their chart-topping 2006 dance single “Yeah Yeah.” From there, Luciana went on to be the “Feat.” artist on many other dance hits: “I Wish I Would” with Martijn ten Velden; the double-platinum “I Like That” with Richard Vission & Static Revenger; “We Own The Night” with Tiësto & Wolfgang Gartner; and “Guess What?” with Cazwell, among many others.
Indy’s own Pop Culture Queen, McKinzie from i94, will emcee this year’s Girl Pride. McKinzie has been seen on television commercials in Central Indiana, has worked for the Indianapolis Colts, and also served as an official NBA emcee for the Indiana Pacers. We super stoked to have her on-board!
