Neon Trees Lead Singer Delivers Powerful Rendition of “Where Can I Turn for Peace”

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

In 2014, Tyler Glenn, the lead singer of the popular band Neon Trees, announced he was a gay member of the Church. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Glenn said, “I don’t know what the rumors are, but we’re not taught that ‘homos are going to hell’ on Sunday in church. Mostly it’s just about Christ and his teachings.”

This past weekend, Glenn was one of the keynote speakers to address LDS LGBT members at the 2015 Affirmation Conference in Provo, Utah. Affirmation is a non-profit organization dedicated to “supporting LGBTQ/SSA Mormons and their families, friends and Church leaders in seeking to live healthy and productive lives consistent with their faith or heritage.”

Glenn sang multiple hymns, including Where Can I Turn for Peace. At the end of the song, Glenn said, “I love these songs.” Watch the powerful rendition above. You can also watch Glenn’s full address to the group below. His portion begins at approximately 1:32:11.
