Children: Morgan Heritage and LMS
Why You Know Them:
Morgan Heritage, the five-piece band consisting of Una, Gramps, Peter, Lukes and Memo Morgan (AKA “Mr. Mojo”), have recorded something like a dozen albums since their 1994 MCA debut, Miracles. The family is so big that it also spawned a second all-sibling group LMS, whose Laza Morgan recently launched a solo career.
Father: Denroy Morgan
Why You Should Know Him:
The patriarch of the massive Morgan family might be Jamaican but he’s best known for the disco/roller-boogie classic “I’ll Do Anything For You.”
