Grammy Award-winning reggae band Morgan Heritage's lead singer, Peter "Pete" Morgan Grammy, has passed away, as announced by the band on February 25.

It is out of sincere love that we share that our beloved husband, father, son, and brother and lead singer of Morgan Heritage Peter Anthony Morgan has ascended today. Our family thanks you in advance for your overwhelming love and support, and we ask for your continued prayers as we go through this process. We also ask that you please respect our privacy during this time of healing", the statement read.

The cause of Peter's death was not disclosed by the group. He was 47 years old. Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1977, Peter Morgan was one of the offspring of Jamaican vocalist Denroy Morgan.

For over three decades, Peter's distinctive voice has guided Morgan Heritage, contributing to numerous influential anthems in contemporary roots reggae. From classics like "Don't Haffi Dread (To Be Rasta)" to heartfelt melodies such as "Down by the River" and "She's Still Loving Me," his vocal talent has left an enduring legacy in reggae music. Just last year, the band released their album 'The Homeland.'
