LeAnn Rimes Honors Veterans With Emotional ‘Celebrate Me Home’ [Watch]
LeAnn Rimes will be honoring veterans this holiday season with a recording of Kenny Loggins' hit "Celebrate Me Home" with Gavin DeGraw, as well as on her Today Is Christmas Tour.
"While Gavin and I were recording 'Celebrate Me Home,' we were reminded of the emotional homecoming videos we’ve seen over the years, and thought that connecting the song to veterans elevated the meaning," Rimes says in a press release. "We thought of all the great work DAV is doing for transitioning service men and women and veterans of all generations and knew it was the perfect holiday partnership."
Rimes partnered with DAV (Disabled American Veterans), which is a nonprofit that provides resources to veterans, this holiday season to raise awareness to America's 22 million veterans and veterans transitioning to civilian life. Her music video for "Celebrate Me" will include clips from military homecomings and veterans on each tour stop will be celebrated with tickets to her concert and VIP treatment.
"DAV is delighted to partner with LeAnn Rimes on this timely opportunity to pay tribute and give back to America’s veterans in meaningful ways,” says Marc Burgess, DAV National Adjutant in a press release. "This partnership will help us reach new audiences and bring greater attention to the importance of providing a lifetime of support to veterans of all generations."
