Grammy-winning California jazz and soul singer Gregory Porter headline Millennium Park's Juneteenth Celebration, commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. Porter's latest record, Take Me to the Alley, is a sparse but capable showcase of his silky vocals and powerful delivery (which you may already be familiar with if you heard Disclosure's "Holding On"). He's supported by local cellist Tomeka Reid and her jazz quartet. This free concert is part of the 2017 Millennium Park Summer Music Series.
