Billy Porter does not hold back. The powerhouse performer earned a 2013 Tony Award for his performance as the drag queen Lola in Kinky Boots. The busy actor, composer, and director has also put out four solo albums. The most recent, Billy Porter Presents: The Soul of Richard Rodgers, features Porter’s fresh take on the composer’s classics, from "My Funny Valentine" to "Edelweiss."
