Berger is known for her undeniable stage presence and intoxicating vocals, and has been making huge waves beyond her mother country, across Europe, U.S. and on the web worldwide. Berger has currently released her new single "Scream", which is listed by the Norwegian broadcaster NRK P3.

“I'm looking forward to the EuroPride concert on Friday 27 June. In many ways I feel that I have a love affair with the queer audience, and that we understand each other. EuroPride 2014 in Oslo is huge and is an important event, and I am pleased to be able to attend. I fully support the message of the festival: That everyone should be able to be themselves, proud, confident and independent,” says Margaret Berger.
