Over the summer, our lead Nadira France graduated from Morgan State University and is now off to pursue exciting new opportunities. As we wish her well, we are excited to welcome Portia Pitts as the new official lead for HALO! Portia first performed with HALO for the MGM Grand 2017 New Year’s celebration and grand opening. She also joined us over the summer, performing with us for various events, including The Ladybug Festival in Wilmington, Delaware– where HALO proudly introduced women’s barbershop to the Ladybug Festival scene at the Baby Grand opera theater.
Portia is also a graduate of Morgan State University, where she received her BFA in Vocal Music studying classical voice and performing multiple genres worldwide with the Morgan State University choir. She is a proud and happy mother of two and we are thrilled to have her voice as the centerpiece while HALO moves forward as an organization with a mission to change the world with barbershop. Welcome, Portia!
