Houston’s LGBT Rainbow On The Green Returns June 23

Rainbow on the Green

Land Rover Houston Central’s Rainbow on the Green presented by Legacy Community Health Care Services Returns To Discovery Green With Dazzling Performances On June 23

(Houston) – Show off your LGBT pride at Houston’ Discovery Green’s 7th annual Rainbow on the Green celebration on Friday, June 23. The free LGBTQ city-wide celebration will feature all-star performances by Crawford Nation and violinists Angelina DM Trailz with music by DJ ASTRA, dance and R&B diva CeCe Peniston, and Colonial Blue featuring Stephanie Rice of The Voice Season 12.

Headliner Cece Peniston is an international dance music and R&B artist that is considered to be one of the most successful dance club artist in the history of US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts. Her signature hit, “Finally,” was #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and #2 on the UK Top 75 and became one of the biggest dance records in history selling over 3 million copies worldwide.

Houston-based alternative-folk band Colonial Blue resemble the resonance of Damien Rice with the melodic tendencies of Texans Eisley, but bring it to life with a beating heart of their own which stems from the personal nature of lead vocalist Stephanie Rice’s songwriting. You can watch Rice on Alicia Keys’ team on this season’s live finales of The Voice Season 12.

Catch these acts and more energizing entertainment in this years’ Rainbow on the Green! Blankets, lawn chairs and picnics are welcome. Glass containers and alcoholic beverages are not allowed; beer and wine will be available for purchase.
