As the blazing hot sun of the day tucked quietly behind Mount San Jacinto, and the moon began to rise, so did the excitement of thousands of people who converged on the festival grounds in Palm Springs for the White Party T-Dance. After three solid days they had been waiting in anticipation for this much anticipated live performance. Leann Rimes!
The two-time Grammy award winning and multi-platinum recording artist burst onto stage, dressed in a white blouse, pants and heels, ready to give the crowd a spectacular show they had been waiting all weekend for.
Leann Rimes performed a number of her hit songs including, And It Feels Like. The sea of shirtless men couldn’t get enough of the songstress, who belted out song after song. The crowd sang along, without skipping a single word or beat. They loved every minute of it!
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.”
As the show ended, the sky erupted with fireworks, said to have been a bigger display than the annual 4th of July show Palm Springs residents are used to. It was sensational ending to a fantastic concert.
Over 30,000 people attended the three-day long weekend, confirming White Party Palm Springs really is the biggest gay circuit party in the world. The 27th annual event is said to return April 22-25, 2016.
