It was an all-star gospel showing at Greater St. Stephen in New Orleans East Monday night for Bishop Paul S. Morton’s final music recording.

The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International founder, 64,received tons of support from GRAMMY® award-winning artists who came to honor the man who has so greatly influenced their ministries.

Shirley Caesar, Hezekiah Walker, William Murphy, Rance Allen, Tasha Cobbs, DeWayne Woods, Smokie Norful and more were in attendance.

Bishop’s son, PJ Morton, member of the chart-topping group Maroon 5, took time out of his busy schedule to honor his father as well.

“He’s my dad, man, above all. I’m just happy to be here, supporting my father first, and second one of the most amazing artists who has made some amazing music through the years,” he said in an interview with ABC News affiliate WGNO.

Over the past 30 years, Morton has released 10 albums and is among the most respected vocalists and preachers of our time.

“I’ve enjoyed an extensive career in the gospel music industry and it’s time for the next generation to take the reigns,” said Morton, who turns 65 on July 30, in a statement. “I’m closing the door to solo recording projects and opening new doors that will lead to mentoring and producing aspiring artists.”
