Adam Lambert - "Ghost Town"
In support of National Pride Month, for the entire month of June I will only post artists who Identify as somewhere on the LGBTQI Spectrum. We are loud, we are proud, and we deserve to be heard.
Beyond Idol, beyond the musical theatre, Adam Lambert was a champion of our community. One of the very first Rock Stars to be a bonafide hit maker and out of the closet from the very beginning. After taking up the mantle of Freddie Mercury as the front man for Queen, Adam turned his career into one of his own design, and it has been glorious to watch.
Lambert rose to fame in 2009 after finishing as runner-up on the eighth season of American Idol. Later that year, he released his debut album, For Your Entertainment, which debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200. The album spawned several hit singles, including "Whataya Want from Me", for which he received a Grammy nomination for "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance".
In 2012, Lambert released his second studio album, Trespassing. The album premiered at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, making him the first openly gay artist to top the album charts. In 2015, Lambert released his third album, The Original High, which debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200 and produced the international hit "Ghost Town".
So today, with care gone with the wind, I choose Adam Lambert's "Ghost Town" as my, make it your way, make liars out of them, shake off the disbelief, song for a, walk on the wild side, see the dark to know the light, follow you own footsteps out of the wilderness, Thursday.
