Maroon 5 artist and singer PJ Morton has just announced that he’s introduced Urban Inspirational artist JoJo Martin on his recently formed record label Morton Records. His debut single “Run On” is set to hit radio very soon. Morton added the following of the song and partnership:
“Run On is a very personal single release for me. JoJo has sung background for me and toured with me for ten plus years. His support over the years not only to me but the likes of Fred Hammond has been amazing. I’m excited for the masses to hear what I’ve been fortunate to hear for years. JoJo’s voice is truly special”.
JoJo was born Josiah Martin on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. The son of a church pastor, he is the youngest of five boys. He began to sing at the age of four and by the age of seven, he was traveling around California singing at musicals and performing sermonic selections before his father preached. Later on, he and his siblings traveled and performed together as The Martin Boys. With some direction from his mother, a trained vocal instructor, JoJo began to develop as a soloist and ended up as a finalist for the NAACP ACT-SO Competition in Houston. He eventually sang lead on “Just Praise Him” and “So Good” with Joe Pace and The Colorado Mass Choir. It was during this time that JoJo discovered he wanted to make music his primary focus.
JoJo traveled the country with a musical stage play called, “The Rock and The Rabbi”, and has also had the opportunity to share the stage with; Tyrese, Fred Hammond, Kirk Franklin, Maroon 5, PJ Morton, Bishop Paul S. Morton Sr., Mary Mary, Frank McComb, Tweet, Dave Hollister and amongst others. Supporters can witness JoJo’s dynamic stage presence live on these forthcoming concert dates:
