Maren Ord Tells Edmonton Sun About Career

EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA -- With tours shaping up for fall and a series of free concerts at Kinsmen Park during the World Championships in Athletics and playing in Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair, Maren Ord has been forced to quit her part-time job at Treasured Memories. What has been been bad for the scrapbook industry has been good for the music business.

With the full support of her large, musical Mormon family, Ord, 20, is preparing for her August 6 performance at the Festival of the Worlds. She says she is delighted to be able to make a career out of the dream she's had since she was a child.

When asked about her perfect day, Ord replied, "It would be Sunday." "Wake up, go to church, come home spend time with my family," she said. "We try to have family dinners every Sunday. Actually, every Sunday is perfect for me."

When asked who she most admires most, Ord said, "My parents. I really look up to them. They're a really good example to me. They've been the most influential in my life." Her most extravagent expense is her art supplies and her greatest weakness is chocolate.

Her favorite quote is "Remember who you are and what you stand for."


Every Sunday is the perfect Sunday
