Three-time GRAMMY award-winning reggae artist Gramps Morgan has released a version of Johnny Reid's "People Like You". The song is available now worldwide on all digital and streaming platforms. Listen here.
“Every once in a while a song comes along that defies genre and attaches itself deep into the hearts of people around the world,” says Johnny Reid, whose original version was released in May with profits benefitting the Canadian Red Cross’ Stronger Together Nova Scotia Fund. “This song was written as a dedication to all the good people out there who put love and kindness above everything else including themselves. I am so humbled to have Gramps Morgan be the voice that shares this song and its message to those who need it the most."
Morgan first heard “People Like You” during Johnny Reid’s recording session for the track, after the pair met by chance encounter and struck up a musical relationship. Upon hearing the song, Morgan immediately felt compelled to record and release his own version in light of current events around the world.
“We are living in difficult times. In times like these people need comfort and need to feel appreciated, “says Gramps Morgan. “We all need to stick together. I'm doing my part.”
“People Like You'"was recorded at Soultrain Sound Studios in Nashville, TN (previously Randy Scruggs’ Scruggs Sound Studios) It marks Morgan’s first release of new solo music since 2012’s Reggae Music Lives and follows 12 albums with his critically-acclaimed reggae group, Morgan Heritage.
