PJ Morton To Record Live Album With JoJo, BJ The Chicago Kid & More At Essence Fest 2019
The New Orleans native, who is also the keyboardist for pop-rock greats Maroon 5, plans to host the live recording tonight (Friday, July 5) from 9:15pm–10:15pm the Superdome's Playlist Superlounge.
"Big announcement!!" he tweeted in February. "I'm doing a LIVE ALBUM RECORDING AT @essencefest !! I’m bringing @wolfjames @iamjojo @thehamiltonesnc @themamamiax @pellyeah and a bunch more!! Can everybody just come to New Orleans that weekend so y’all can sing super loud with me??"
The live project will follow Morton's Gumbo Unplugged (Live), which was nominated last year for the Best R&B Album GRAMMY.
