When Gregory Porter appeared at this year’s Glastonbury Festival he kindly gave some of the spotlight to a young man to make a surprise marriage proposal in front of thousands. 

When Gregory Porter appeared at this year’s Glastonbury Festival he kindly gave some of the spotlight to a young man to make a surprise marriage proposal in front of thousands. 

Porter’s song ‘Real Good Hands’ is all about the old-school custom of asking for parental blessings on a marriage proposal. So when 28 year-old Tom Bowles proposed to his partner 29 year-old Zoe Taylor, daughter of Porter’s UK representative Heather Taylor, it all seemed artistically and completely relevant!

Gregory announced, “It’s a beautiful day, a special day, a special day for Tom and Zoe. Zoe, Tom’s got something he wants to say to you. Somewhere in this song I’m going to let you do your thing.” And he did, on bended knee.

Porter said, “They clapped louder for them than they did for me. So people believe in love.”
