Video: An emotional LeAnn Rimes joins the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles

December 22, 2010 | 12:26 pm

The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles performed three concerts over the weekend titled "Comfort & Joy." During the performances, the chorus acknowledged young gay men and lesbians who have killed themselves after being bullied.

A highlight of Sunday's concert was this moving appearance by LeAnn Rimes, who sang "The Rose" in a duet with the chorus, singing "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming."

Being a man in the Music Industry, I know Lean Rimes to be an honest and true person. This version she sung will be remastered by me, and all monies will got to this cause. Thanks Lean for singing your heart out. You sang so well, and you have an incredible smile and nice teeth as well. Thanks for this beautiful post of a video. For more information contact me via Stereo Central. Bless you all, and Happy Holidays, Steve Hoffman, now back to lunch..

She cheated with a married man and acts like she was the victim, now what honest and true person does that? If she can show compassion to complete strangers, why then won't she show compassion to the people she hurt by her affair. What true and honest person says that they don't regret the outcome of their affair, especially when it involved two kids?

She is a let down to the christian community. She is supporting the gay lifestyle, it clearly states that it is wrong as well as the affair she had. What is going on? She is supposed to set an example and be a positive role model but yet she's leading youth down the wrong road!

She is not letting anyone down. I am a christian and feel like she is making herself a stronger role model by doing this performance and sending the message that it is ok to be who you are. People who are gay cannot help who they are and they shouldn't, no one should, have to pretend to be someone they are not. Although it is not considered to be "appropriate" to some Christians doesn't mean they should be looked down upon or hurt for being gay. Christians are not supposed to judge, that is God's job. Christians are supposed to love everyone and not attack them for whatever reason. It is not your place to say she is a bad role model..especially when you are on here judging people and condemning people for something they cannot help.
