East Tennessee State University's Student Government Association on Sunday night hosted its Spring Concert featuring Lifehouse with opening performances by Breathe Carolina and The Ready Set.

The crowd filled seats of the Mountain States Health Alliance Memorial Center (Mini Dome) as they interacted with the three groups all night.

Lifehouse has a large fan base. There were a variety of people in the crowd. Many were dancing and singing along with the music and having a great time.

"It was a great show," said senior Cyril Crenshaw. "All three groups in the show did a great job from the lights to the music the entire show was all fantastic."

Since entering mainstream prominence in 2001, the rock band from Los Angeles has released five studio albums, with their latest album, "Smoke & Mirrors," released in March of 2010.

Lifehouse manages to stay relevant in the music industry by touring and performing concerts for colleges and universities around the country and the world.

Lifehouse has sold upwards of 15 million singles and albums worldwide to date. They have won Billboard Music Awards beating out some of the music industry's most prominent nominees.

Lifehouse performed some of their most famous hits which have all been top 40 hits in the U.S., along with others.

Some of those hits performed include: "Hanging by a Moment," "You and Me," "First Time" and "Whatever It Takes."

The group had the entire crowd on their feet from the first song until the very end.

Students seemed to appreciate this event.

"Lifehouse is one of the best bands I've ever seen come to ETSU," said Matthew Hickman. "It's a tie between them and The Fray. Lifehouse really knows how to work the stage."

"That was a great show," said senior Michelle Gore who actually caught the guitar pick that one of the members threw into the crowd.

"I love listening to their music, they sound even more amazing live in person," said Gore. "It's just amazing that it was just four men up there really playing without all of the digital enhancements to the music that are present in a lot of music today."

Lifehouse proved how passionate they are about what they do as they performed from the heart, showing their love for their fans.

That definitely made the show such a success.

The band even tweeted after the show saying, "Had so much fun tonight ETSU! Loved the cookout as well."
