“Wow… my heart just skipped a beat,” said Porter. “What a gift it is to be celebrated by my peers and afforded a moment for me to reflect. I don’t get a lot of time to do that…how blessed I feel to have lived long enough to see this day. Thank you everybody! Thank you for listening! The category is…LOVE.”
