KD Bowe talks candidly with Bishop Paul S. Morton on his album Legacy: Live in New Orleans and why this will be his last album.
He also shares with us why he’s okay with his son recording artist and songwriter PJ Morton singing love songs. Watch the full interview above.
Bishop Morton says: “This ‘Legacy’ album, my final solo recording, is very dear to my heart. I thank God for every opportunity that He allows me to share my gift. I love to help people through a song. This is truly ministry for me.”
Capturing the spirit of resilience, faith, and lively worship from Bishop Morton’s sold-out live recording in New Orleans last year, Legacy: Live in New Orleans brings together an historic musical celebration of Morton’s legacy in ministry and his 30-plus years as a recording artist. Recorded at the Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church, Bishop Morton is backed by the 100-person Greater Change Mass Choir, comprised of the Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church Choir and the Changing A Generation Full Gospel Baptist Church Choir.
Bishop Morton delivers a powerful declaration on the album’s energetic lead single “Watching Over Me,” praising the comfort and guidance of God through personal trials, with lyrics such as “I am a witness/He never lets me down/Watching over me.” Produced by Trent Phillips and co-produced by AyRon Lewis, a host of special guests joined the recording to honor Bishop Morton’s legacy in song. Featured performances on the album include PJ Morton and DeWayne Woods on “Let Go,” gospel icons Pastor Shirley Caesar on “Keeping Me Alive” and Rance Allen on “God Has Been Good,” Tasha Cobbs, Lisa Knowles, Zacardi Cortez, and William Murphy III.
The founder of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International (FGBCFI), after retiring last year as FGBCFI’s presiding bishop, Bishop Morton continues to preach at the Changing A Generation Full Gospel Baptist Church in Atlanta as Senior Pastor, and serving as Co-Pastor of the Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church. Since its inception by Bishop Paul S. Morton, the FGBCFI has grown nationally and internationally, celebrating 22 years of change and impactful ministry. In addition to his roles as a bishop and recording artist, Bishop Morton is an author, and also created the record label Tehillah Music Group, helming the label as CEO.
