Veteran Reggae & Ska music singer Denroy Morgan

Custom Search

Jamaican reggae music and Ska singer Denroy Morgan. Morgan was born in May Pen in Clarendon, but left Jamaica in 1965 at the age of 19 and traveled to the United States where he later became a musician.

He was part of the formation the Black Eagles, a New York City reggae band in the 1970s, before launching a prosperous solo career in the 1980s onwards.

Denroy found success in the States in 1981 with the release of his I'll Do Anything for You album, when the title track became a big R&B and Dance hit. In the realm of reggae, however, Morgan's peak period was when he signed in 1984 with RCA Records.

That deal led to the release of the reggae album Make My Day and marked him as the first reggae artist to be signed to RCA Records.

His children encouraged by his success have also took on musical careers themselves including Laza Morgan, Gramps Morgan, and in family bands LMS and Morgan Heritage.

In 1981, Morgan had his most successful release with "I'll Do Anything For You," which featured musical backing from the Black Eagles and peaked at number nine on the American soul chart.

"I'll Do Anything For You" also peaked at number seven on the dance charts. These successes helped to launch his solo reggae career.
