It’s not coincidence why Leann Rimes performed at White Party Palm Springs. No stranger to supporting the LGBT community, in December 2010, Leann Rimes performed her hit song, The Rose with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles in honour of the LGBT teenages who had taken their lives in 2010.

Later, in 2011, Leann Rimes wrote, “I believe in equality for everyone. I believer everyone should have the right to love and commit to whomever they want. […] All I know is that in God’s eyes we are all the same. I just wish we could see through the eyes of God more often.”
