About Wess Morgan:

Wess Morgan’s unique powerhouse vocals and breath-taking testimony make his time before audiences exceptionally memorable.

In the last few years, Wess has become increasingly popular due to his ability to sing soulful melodies over life-changing lyrics, as well as his unique talent to share God’s word thru his personal testimony. Both the music and spoken word coming from Wess Morgan connect with the hearts of people in search of the truth regarding their life’s purpose. The power in his message of change has succeeded in transcending the church as apparent in invitations for Wess to appear on mainstream television programs including, TBN, The Word Network, BET Gospel, The Gospel Superfest, SuperBowl Gospel Celebration, BET’s The Mo’Nique Show, as well as acting in world-renowned Playwright and box office hit Director Tyler Perry’s production, Laugh To Keep From Crying.

In his youth, Joel Wesley Morgan, p/k/a “Wess,” began traveling and singing with his two siblings and parents as they ministered the word of God in music, teaching and preaching in churches across the US. As a teen, Wess Morgan’s life took a turn for what appeared to be the worse. He began using drugs and alcohol. The use quickly turned to abuse, which eventually lead to several repeated jail sentences and time spent in recovery centers away from family and home. Although many people within the community had given up on Wess, his family had faith that God would rescue Wess and recover him from a grim lifestyle filled with uncertainties. Post recovery, Wess identified and embraced his mission to become an agent of change in the lives of people in need of transformation before and/or after drug and alcohol abuse.

To accomplish this mission, the vision of Wess Morgan to brand life building messages via multimedia consumables and live events was birthed. In November 2007, Wess Morgan completed and released his debut CD title “Look at Me Now.” The contemporary Gospel music CD, serves as a testament to the experience of transformation in Morgan’s life. Wess Morgan performs songs he has written and co-produced from “Look at Me Now” before live audiences across the world.

The singles “You Gave Me Hope” and 2011 GMA Dove Award and Stellar Award nominated “I Choose to Worship,” provide strong reference points for the brand of music you will experience on his sophomore musical offering, Under An Open Heaven, the current release on his wholly owned, Bowtie World Music.

Wess Morgan is also the founder and director of the Wess Morgan Foundation. The 501(c) (3) non-profit organization has a focus on drug and alcohol prevention/recovery. The foundation is working with churches, government programs, civic and community centers stateside and abroad in an effort to steer youth away from drugs and alcohol use, and towards participating in humanitarian based initiatives that will enrich their personal lives, neighborhoods and communities. The foundation serves youth in urban communities in Tennessee on an ongoing basis through faith-based and educational programs. Pastor Wess serves as Senior Worship Leader and Associate Pastor at Celebration of Life Church in Hendersonville, Tennessee where his parents Joseph and Yolanda Morgan are the senior pastors.
