Mary Lambert Performs at Stonewall to Celebrate the National Park Service

Andrew Frasz

The "Same Love" songstress stopped by to celebrate the newly declared national monument.

Mary Lambert came to the legendary Stonewall Inn for a pop-up performance earlier this week.

Lambert, who is best known for her siren-like voice in the song "Same Love," performed in high winds and cool temperatures at the entrance of the Inn, which marked the start of the gay rights movement.

The performance was a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service and was followed by a tour of the area led by both Lambert and a few park rangers. Full of the neighborhood's most historic moments, the tour showcased the influence that Stonewall has had on the rest of the world since the riots in 1969.

Stonewall was made a National Monument in June of this year. Again, making history as it is the first ever national monument dedicated to LGBT rights.

Lambert, a centennial ambassador for the #FindYourPark movement, says she's always had a passion in preserving these historic places.

"I think it's rare that a person can find all their interests encapsulated in one mission," Lambert said in reference to her role. "I wanted to do everything I could to preserve these landmarks."

Her performance took place just hours before Stonewall's celebrity auction which featured items like a signed pair of Madonna's shoes, a hat from Cher, a bodysuit from Demi Lovato, along with countless others.

Last we saw of Lambert, she--along with Brian Justin Crum, Mario Jose, and Superfruit--sang along to Katy Perry's song "Rise."
