Singer, actor, songwriter, playwright, and director Billy Porter is a throwback to the old-school entertainers, as a triple threat who has found success across performance mediums. His Broadway-inspired delivery and soulful tone have landed him on the Billboard R&B and dance charts – first with “Love Is on the Way” from his 1997 eponymous debut album – and won him a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for 2013’s Kinky Boots. He became the first openly gay Black man to win a lead actor Emmy when he took home the trophy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for the role of Pray Tell on Pose, about the N.Y.C. drag ball scene, in 2019. That led to roles like the Fabulous Godmother in the 2021 live-action musical version of Cinderella. Meanwhile, he delivered motivational club hits such as 2019’s “Love Yourself” and 2021’s “Children.”
