Celebrate Portia White, Canada’s first Black singer to win international acclaim. With a voice considered “A Gift from Heaven”, she began singing with her church choir in Halifax and rose to fame in the 1940’s against all odds. Through the support of her parents, Izie and the Reverend Andrew White, and teacher Ernesto Vinci, we follow Portia’s journey to greatness that was to inspire so many. Glorious Spiritual and Classical Music are the background for this heartwarming and joyful story of a Canadian Legend.
