"Yes Rasta" - Grammy Award Winners Morgan Heritage
It is with exultation and humbleness that on February 15th, 2016, Reggae Month, Black History Month, The Royal Family of Reggae took the stage at Staples Center in Los Angeles to accept the Grammy for "Strictly Roots", 2015 Best Reggae Album. It is an honor that was a long time coming for the reggae siblings, an honor dedicated to "our Father Denroy Morgan, mothers Hyacinth Morgan and Pearl Foster, our wives/husband and children and to the people of our beloved Jamaica and Africa."
"Winning the Grammy is an achievement next to none. While we are grateful for the acknowledgment from our piers, we're even more grateful for the people behind the music and our fans that kept us going for over 20 years. It's gratifying and humbling at the same time. Jah is worthy to be praised!!!" - Mojo Morgan
