Peter Anthony Morgan, the lead vocalist of the renowned reggae ensemble Morgan Heritage, which he co-founded with four siblings, passed away on Sunday at the age of 46, as confirmed by his family. Requesting privacy during this difficult time, his family expressed gratitude in advance for the outpouring of love and support. Although the statement released on social media did not disclose the cause of death, it conveyed the profound loss felt by Morgan’s loved ones.

Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness took to social media to express his deep sorrow, describing Morgan’s passing as a “colossal loss” not only for Jamaica but also for the world of reggae music.

Fondly known as “Peetah,” Morgan was the son of the esteemed Jamaican reggae artist Denroy Morgan. Together with his siblings, he established Morgan Heritage in 1994, culminating in the band’s Grammy win for Best Reggae Album in 2016 with “Strictly Roots.”

Reflecting on Morgan’s legacy, veteran British reggae DJ David Rodigan paid tribute to the uniqueness of his voice and his significant impact on reggae music worldwide. Rodigan expressed shock and sadness upon learning of Morgan’s untimely passing.

Among Morgan’s siblings, Roy “Gramps” Morgan relocated to Tennessee, where he aimed to introduce reggae to Nashville, showcasing the family’s diverse musical talents.

“If you follow reggae music and country music, it’s a lot of storytelling,” Morgan told The Associated Press in 2018. “In reggae, we tell the story of people suffering.”

The other founding members of the band included Una Morgan, Nakhamyah “Lukes” Morgan, and Memmalatel “Mr. Mojo” Morgan, each contributing to Morgan Heritage’s distinct sound and lasting influence on the reggae genre.
