LEXINGTON, KY (WTVQ)- Former Kentucky Wildcat Isaac Humphries may be a professional athlete, but he’s using his musical talents to make a difference this weekend.
On Sunday, Humphries will have a charity concert at the Lexington Opera House. All proceeds will go to the Ronald McDonald House.
The former cat first came up with the idea as a freshman. Humphries’ main inspiration came from how passionate Solid Blue fans are for the basketball team.
“I thought it would be really cool to do something different, outside of basketball, that fans could see and see a different aspect to us,” said Humphries.
Over the past year, he’s come up with a set list of songs that have help shaped who Isaac is as a person. While there is some anxiousness for Sunday’s performance, it’s nothing new for the former UK center.
“I mean. I played at Rupp (Arena), so you kind of get used to having so many people watch you and cheer for you,” said Humphries. “Honestly, playing at Rupp and playing with UK around America in all of these big arenas and having Big Blue Nation come everywhere has prepared me so much for this show because I will get on stage and won’t feel as uncomfortable I may have, if I had never gone through that.”
Tickets are still available for Sunday’s concert. For more information, please click the link below.
