In Memory of Ruth Bader Ginsburg – THE ROSE – LeAnn Rimes with GMCLA
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was our champion. She fought for LGBTQ rights, the rights of women, and the rights of all those who needed her ferocious, unwavering, and brilliant legal mind to make our country a more just place to live. She made our lives better and losing her is a loss we can hardly calculate.
Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles has sung in times of joy and sorrow over the past 41 years and, as we cannot be with you in person today, we offer you a musical tribute to the life of the Notorious RBG. GMCLA with the incredible Lee Ann Rimes singing THE ROSE — one the most beloved guest artists and GMCLA performances of all time — captured in video from our own James Roman.
As we honor Justice Ginsburg’s life we also honor the legacy she has left us. A legacy we know is very fragile. GMCLA will continue to do what we have done for these past four decades and raise our voices in song for our community in joy and sorrow, and for social justice for all.
Filmed at the Saban Theatre, Beverly Hills, CA. December 19, 2010.
Sincerely, Lou Spisto Executive Director & Producer
