All Music Guide:
Singer, recording artist, pastor, and director Wess Morgan took the long and hard road in finding his calling in life. The son of Pastors Joseph and Yolanda Morgan, Morgan spent his childhood traveling and singing gospel with his parents and his siblings. At the young age of ten, though, he began using drugs and drinking, which led to several jail sentences and a whole lot of time in recovery centers before he finally emerged from his cycle of substance abuse. Helping others who had taken the same unfortunate path became Morgan's mission in life and he eventually established the Repre Foundation, a nonprofit organization focused on drug and alcohol prevention and recovery. He also founded Bowtie World Music, a music and film production company. Morgan's debut album, Look at Me Now, was released in 2007, and was quickly embraced by the Christian and gospel communities, allowing him to tour and promote his foundation and mission. A second album, Under an Open Heaven, appeared in 2010.
