The last seven days have been full of excitement and anticipation for new artist Marcus G. Morton. Morton, a Chicago native, had the honor and privilege of going head to head with one of his mentors and fellow Chicagoans, Brian Courtney Wilson, as their songs battled for Flat Out Hit of the Week on the nationally syndicated Willie Moore, Jr. Show.“When I found out that I won FLAT OUT HIT OF THE WEEK, I was excited, shocked, honored and grateful. It was an honor to be considered by Willie Moore, Jr. and Ahmed Gordon, and to be able to share that moment with someone I admire like Brian Courtney Wilson, was the icing on the cake.” Marcus won the friendly battle with an astounding 78% of the vote. You can hear Mighty and Great two times daily on the WMJS during the week of Oct 19-23.
After traveling the world with JJ Hairston and YP, Marcus is elated to release his debut album, Mighty and Great. The 12 song set is a perfect blend of praise, worship and contemporary gospel music that is sure to lift the spirit of anyone who listens. Songs like the title track, Move This Place, Sovereign and Release Your Glory are some of the stand out songs that will make Morton’s debut a complete fourth quarter conversation piece.
Be sure to check out Marcus G. Morton on the Urban Soul Cafe Virtual Experience along with Marvin Sapp, Myron Butler, JJ Hairston, Isabel Davis, Pastor Mike Jr and more on Sunday, November 1 at 6PM CST.
