We are thrilled to partner with Bee & El on the upcoming release of Tony & Grammy Award-Winner Billy Porter‘s new studio album, Billy Porter Presents The Soul of Richard Rodgers, in April 2017. The album, which will feature new, soulful takes on classic Richard Rodgers songs, The Soul of Richard Rodgers includes solos and duets from some of theater and music’s biggest contemporary stars, including Tony Award-winners Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom, Jr., Renee Elise Goldsberry Patina Miller, Grammy nominee Ledisi, Tony Award nominees Joshua Henry and Brandon Victor Dixon, and many more to be announced.
Billy Porter Presents The Soul of Richard Rodgers marks Porter’s fourth studio album, and his first as producer as content curator.
“Since the release of my first album “Untitled” almost two decades ago, I’ve been fusing my favorite genres, Broadway and Soul, in my music,” Porter said. “It has always been my dream to expand this idea beyond myself, so its sounds and attitudes could evolve to become a respected and viable voice in the Broadway market. This album is yet another example of how mashing up the classic with the modern makes the art explosive, transformative, visceral and immediate.”
Stay tuned for more!
