He overcame his addiction and now owns his own recording label Bowtie Music LLC, is founder and director of the Wess Morgan Foundation and is the Senior Worship Leader & Associate Pastor at Celebration of Life Church and he annually convenes RECOVERY FEST at his church to help others seeking recovery from drug and alcohol issues.
