Inspired by the spirit and national pride of the 2010 Winter Games, Langley’s Mary Martini brought together a team of exceptional talent to celebrate our national birthday.
With the help of award-winning songwriters Bob Buckley and Brian Gibson a new national song, Keep the Pride Alive, was launched on July 1, 2010 in Langley, British Columbia.
The song was performed at the Canada Day celebration in McLeod Athletic Park by Cole Armour and Gemma Martini.
The accompanying flash mob dance routine was choreographed by Bob Buckley’s wife, Marlise McCormick, the Associate Director of Choreography for the 2010 Olympic Games opening and closing ceremonies.
Keep the Pride Alive will no doubt become a national sensation in the same way that Expo 86’s anthem, This is My Home, another Buckley/Gibson creation, swept the country.
Cole Armour will perform at Chief Sepass Theatre on October 17, 2010 for a Heritage Matters fundraiser organized by the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery.
