On Sunday, a very cool event is happening in Lexington that you don’t want to miss. Former Cat Isaac Humphries is performing a benefit concert supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of the Bluegrass at the Lexington Opera House Sunday night at 6 p.m.
“Isaac Humphries: Songs of My Life” will feature 15 songs (a nod to his Kentucky jersey number) and some special guests. Tickets are still available at Ticketmaster, with all proceeds going to help families with sick children.
“I’m so excited to share this experience with my Kentucky family,” Humphries said. “While I was a player at UK, Coach (John) Calipari always stressed servant leadership and impacting the lives of others. It’s no secret that I have a love for music and I have spent years developing this very idea. I have always wanted to share this side of myself with this particular community and help this specific organization that I respect so much.
“The Ronald McDonald House is a prevalent presence on Kentucky’s campus and I have always admired what the House does for families. It was important to me to return to a community that I consider my second home and impact this organization and city that I love so much.”
Isaac’s already in town to prepare for the concert and train for next month’s NBA Summer League, during which he’ll try to earn another NBA contract with the L.A. Clippers. In 2018, Humphries was named NBL Rookie of the Year before accepting a spot with the Atlanta Hawks G-League team. After averaging 11.3 points and 6.9 rebounds in 46 G-League games, Humphries earned a roster spot with the Hawks for the final month of the 2019 season.
This afternoon, UK posted this video of Humphries at the Joe Craft Center:
