LeAnn Rimes Pays Visit To Historic Area For Free Concert

by Alex Lloyd Gross

County artist LeAnn Rimes was in Philadelphia yesterday for a free show. She was the special guest of the US Army Field band and Sailors Chorus . The show, at the Judge Lewis Quadrangle, was full of patriotic songs. Just what you would expect.

Of course, the National Anthem was played, then they went into such classics as “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and “The Liberty Bell”, composed by John Phillip Sousa. About 500 people showed up for the show. A few chairs were set up first come first served. Many elected to bring their own, or use a blanket.
