“I sing like I’m never going to sing ever again,” Morgan says. “I wanted to capture that power and passion every time. At some moments, it sounds flawless. At others, it sounds like it’s going to break. I’m revealing something about myself with every song. You’ve got to do that. My favourite artists, whether Joni Mitchell or Michael Jackson, are and were, always honest.”

In her career to date Morgan has starred on Broadway in The Addams Family, Wonderland, Godspell and Motown The Musical. It was Motown The Musical that saw her catch the eyes of Doug Morris and L.A. Reid leading to her record deal with Epic Records in 2012.
