Gramps Morgan, the legendary Grammy winner with the booming reggae-style voice, inspires hope with his dramatic new single “People Like You” via Halo Entertainment Group / Ineffable Music.
“People Like You” is available now worldwide on all digital and streaming platforms.
The song makes a holy plea and conveys an important message of hope during times of uncertainty and unrest.
“We are living in difficult times,” said Gramps Morgan. “In times like these people need comfort and need to feel appreciated. We all need to stick together. I’m doing my part”
“People Like You” was written by Johnny Reid and released in May with profits going to the Canadian Red Cross’ Stronger Together Nova Scotia Fund.
“Every once in a while a song comes along that defies genre and attaches itself deep into the hearts of people around the world,” said Reid. “This song was written as a dedication to all the good people out there who put love and kindness above everything else including themselves.”
Morgan first heard “People Like You” during Johnny Reid’s recording session for the track, after the pair met by chance encounter and struck up a musical relationship. Upon hearing the song, Morgan immediately felt compelled to record and release his own version in light of current events around the world.
“People Like You’ was recorded at Soultrain Sound Studios in Nashville, TN (previously Randy Scruggs’ Scruggs Sound Studios) It marks Morgan’s first release of new solo music since 2012’s Reggae Music Lives and follows 12 albums with his critically-acclaimed reggae group, Morgan Heritage.
