Event Details



GREGORY PORTER




For Gregory Porter, the influence of Nat King Cole on his life and music runs deep, a through-line that reaches back into some of his earliest childhood memories, and culminates in the release of the two-time GRAMMY-winning vocalist’s stunning fifth studio album Nat King Cole & Me, a heartfelt tribute to the legendary singer, pianist, and Capitol recording artist. “He was one of a kind. He left such great music – such beautiful things to listen to that you can’t help but be influenced by that extraordinary timbre, style, and ultimate cool,” Porter enthuses.

 “I went about selecting the songs like I always do – first in a very emotional way,” Porter says. “I just gathered the songs that meant something to me over the years. There was a period in college when I had an injury to my shoulder and I needed music to soothe me at that time. So I ended up going back to Nat’s records. Then I did the same thing during the passing of my mother. In a way, there’s a familiarity and a calming effect to Nat’s music. Recording Nat’s music was very personal because I could hear and feel my mother. And I still feel myself searching for my father.”

Gregory Porter grew up here in Bakersfield, and we are proud to welcome him home to share his fondest memories through the music of Nat King Cole. Please join us for “Coming Home- An Evening with Gregory Porter.”

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY



Habitat for Humanity Golden Empire helps families gain the strength, stability and independence they need to break the cycle of poverty and build a better life.  We do this by working with individuals and families in Kern County to help them build or improve the place they call home.  Partner families invest “sweat equity” by constructing their homes, alongside community volunteers, and pay on an affordable fixed-rate loan increasing pride of ownership and honoring our partnership philosophy of "a hand up, not a hand-out".

 Habitat for Humanity Golden Empire began in April 1991.  Since that time, we have supported families in building 56 new homes and rehabilitating over 15 owner-occupied homes throughout Kern County.  We also opened our first retail outlet, ReStore, ten years ago with our second store opening last year.  With your support, we look forward to helping many more local families now and in the years to come!
