Tony Winner Billy Porter Thanks His Mom for Being ‘the Personification of True Christianity’

“…. my mother, Clarenda Jean Ford, at home in Pittsburgh, you are the personification of true Christianity.

Here’s the whole speech, including where he praises the show for letting him express his spirit, here:
