So many will be affected by this, some won’t even know why...but the whole world was graced by the vibrance in your spirit." Celebrating Porter's kind and entrepreneurial spirit, Janelle Monae wrote, "I am forever indebted to you. When the headlines talk about you I pray they talk about the platform your company gave new and up and coming artists in Atlanta."
