Music: PJ Morton Notches First No. 1 with “All In His Plan”


Multi-Award-winning R&B singer/producer and Maroon 5 keyboardist, PJ Morton notches his first Billboard Magazine No. 1  as “All in His Plan” tops the Gospel Airplay chart for the week ending September 5, 2020.  The bluesy, retro ballad features poignant performances from Le’Andria Johnson, and the platinum-selling duo, Mary Mary.

“All in His Plan” anchors Morton’s first-ever gospel music album, Gospel According to PJ (Morton Inspiration/ Tyscot), which is destined to become a classic in league with Aretha Franklin’s 1972 spiritual homecoming, Amazing Grace.

The all-star collaborative project from the New Orleans Born singer features gospel legends Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, Commissioned, Mary Mary, J Moss, Kim Burrell, The Clark Sisters, and his father, Bishop Paul S. Morton. It also showcases a new generation of luminaries such as Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Smokie Norful, Travis Greene, Zacardi Cortez, Brian Courtney Wilson, Travis Greene, Jermaine Dolly, Darrel `MusiqCity’ Walls, Lena Byrd Miles, and Le’Andria Johnson. (Link

Morton produced the majority of the enterprise from his New Orleans studio hub – at the height of the coronavirus quarantine – where he supervised remote recording sessions with his guest artists via Zoom, Facetime, and AudioMover. “The one plus to working under these circumstances is that everyone was home,” Morton chuckles. “I imagine this project could have been more of a nightmare with all of these different [artist] schedules.”
