LeAnn Rimes reacted to the sudden passing of music legend Jeff Beck by sharing a touching throwback of a performance with the talented guitarist.
As Monsters and Critics reported, Jeff, a member of the popular band The Yardbirds, died at age 78. Jeff suddenly contracted bacterial meningitis and passed just weeks after the illness.
To pay homage to the talented musician, LeAnn looked back with fondness at a special performance that she, Jeff, and Bebe Winans delivered.
As LeAnn revealed in a caption that accompanied the clip, the purpose of the performance was to honor another musical great– Barbra Streisand.
LeAnn shared the heartfelt moment with her 823k Instagram followers, so they could take a walk down memory lane with her.
The post was more of a celebration of life rather than mourning the loss, and it was quite beautiful.
Also beautiful was LeAnn, who glittered and sparkled as she sang her heart out to the crowd’s delight.

The Grammy Award-winning singer looked gorgeous as she performed in a sparkling silver dress on stage with a couple of legends by her side.
The video began with Jeff shredding metal as LeAnn joined in, looking stunning and belting out serious notes.
American gospel singer Bebe Winans joined in with a soulful voice filled with passion.
The performance was fitting for the occasion, honoring the talented Barbra Streisand.
Perhaps even more touching was LeAnn’s caption that accompanied the share.
She began, “i’ve had the honor of sharing the stage with some badass people throughout my career, but this has always been one of my fondest memories. jeff was so incredibly humble, quiet and funny and then, walks out on stage and transforms into the rock god that he is, was and forever will be.”
LeAnn continued, “to have honored the incredible @barbrastreisand with these two greats, @bebewinans & jeff beck will forever be one of the greatest moments of my life. so, in honor of my friend… may you rest peacefully, mr. beck!”
Many of LeAnn’s 823,000 followers showed their appreciation for the heartfelt tribute in the comments section.
Beauty stylist Randi Cogan-Shinder wrote, “Wow! Your voice @leannrimes ????✨?” while other fans wrote, “Brilliant ?,” Fire woman?,” and “Incredible ❤️”
Jeff Beck was regarded as one of the most influential guitarists of all time.
The Yardbirds member won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance six times and was twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, firstly as a member of Yardbirds and later as a solo artist.
Last year, Beck released a collaborative album with Johnny Depp called 18, which included the single, This Is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr.
Beck’s family announced his death last week, writing on Instagram, “After suddenly contracting bacterial meningitis, he peacefully passed away yesterday. His family ask for privacy while they process this tremendous loss.”
LeAnn Rimes’ workout
LeAnn shared that her husband, Eddie Cibrian, has served as a workout partner and motivation to the singer. She also said that she and Eddie went to SoulCycle classes together.
The singer relayed an amusing anecdote to Us Weekly, where she explained that Eddie made distracting noises while exercising.
In a funny video posted to Instagram last year, Eddie bench-pressed his wife just like a set of weights as she gave him encouragement. It was all going so well until Eddie dropped LeAnn, and she fell onto him, causing much hilarity for the singer.
At one point, LeAnn tried to lift her husband, but unfortunately, she wasn’t able to do it.
The video was set to LeAnn’s Can’t Fight the Moonlight.
LeAnn joked in the caption, “ready… OKAY… no husbands were (badly) hurt in the making of this ? watch to the end…!”
When LeAnn isn’t working out with her man, you might find her doing boxing, Pilates, and yoga. She exercises four times a week and focuses on her glutes and legs.
