Gregory Porter is coming to a city near you this year. From February thru July 2020, you can find his fantastic voice in cities like Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Grand Prairie, Detroit, North Bethesda, Nashville, North Charleston, and Montreal with special performances with Ledisi in Houston and Chicago.
His mother was an instrumental part of his singing career, as she encouraged him to sing in church at an early age. Born and raised in California, he started out doing college football, but after an injury that cut his football career short and before his mother passed away, she gave him the inspiration to sing.
He moved to New York in 2004 and began singing part time. It progressed to doing more gigs and finding his touring band there. Porter’s first album was released in 2010 and he’s released seven other albums since then with his ninth album being released this year.
