The bands many hits include Lets Make Up, People Are Fighting, Set Yourself Free, Mama and Papa, and Protect Us Jah. Initially an octet featuring eight of Morgans 29 children, Morgan Heritage began recording with their father in the early 90s. Although they attended school in Springfield, MA, they spent their weekends in their fathers recording studio in Brooklyn. Their debut single, Wonderful World, was produced by their father and released in 1991. An album, Growing Up, followed shortly afterward.
