Gramps Morgan of the famous band Morgan Heritage has talked about how the death of his mum inspired the song ‘Wash The Tears.’
According to Morgan, the songs lyrics were written by his sister.
Through his social media he shared,
‘MY MOTHER LOST HER BATTLE WITH CANCER IN 1988.
IN 1999 MY SISTER WAS REMINISCING HER MEMORY WHILE WE WERE ON TOUR. HER EMOTIONS INSPIRED THE LYRICS AND MELODY FOR “WASH THE TEARS”.
ANOTHER 11 YEARS LATER THE SONG WAS RELEASED WORLDWIDE.
IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE AND, WILL ALWAYS HOLD A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART.
TODAY, ANOTHER 11 YEARS LATER I’VE RELEASED AN ACOUSTIC VERSION OF THE SONG. THE MESSAGE IN THE LYRICS STILL RING TRUE AFTER ALL OF THIS TIME.
Morgan Heritage band was formed in 1994 by five children of reggae artist Denroy Morgan, namely Peter “Peetah” Morgan, Una Morgan, Roy “Gramps” Morgan, Nakhamyah “Lukes” Morgan, and Memmalatel “Mr. Mojo” Morgan.
Gramps has been doing solo projects in the recent years among them being the hit single ‘People Like You.’
