Back by popular demand after a sold-out show at Strathmore in February 2019, Porter is beloved for his honeyed baritone and soulful jazz. Porter began singing in church as a young boy, encouraged by his mother, a minister. There are still gospel undertones in his tender delivery that lift the spirit and soothe the soul. A gifted singer of standards as well as more contemporary soul material, Porter has earned comparisons to luminaries like Nat King Cole, Donny Hathaway, and Stevie Wonder. His recent release, Nat King Cole & Me, a loving tribute to Porter’s life-long idol, was nominated for two Grammy Awards.
