“This means so much to me,” Porter shared from the stage. “Cancer has affected my life in so many ways and I’m sure it has every single person in this room. I’ve always wanted to be involved in something like this.”

Recruiting friends and collaborators for the one-of-a-kind evening, Dustin LynchNate Smith, Walker HayesLily Rose, Alana Springsteen, and Madeline Merlo joined Porter on the bill, raising $85,000 for the American Cancer Society, supporting its vision to end cancer as we know it, for everyone.

“These artists are so busy so the fact they’re here shows how much this means to all of us,” Porter continued. “Doing good, spreading love, and helping people is the reason we’re all here.”

Detailing her journey to becoming an American Cancer Society ambassador with PEOPLE ahead of the show, Porter took to the stage performing fan-favorites like “These Days” and “Pickup,” and debuting some new music from her forthcoming full-length album, like freshly released “Bet You Break My Heart,” and May-dropped heat seaker “Chasing Tornadoes.”
