PJ Morton is not only a talented musician, but he’s also an HBCU graduate. Before becoming a Grammy winning artist, he attended Morehouse College.

Morton mentioned that when it came time to apply to colleges he only applied to Morehouse. He’s all about continued support for HBCU’s and is joining forces with UNCF (United Negro College Fund), because they help students that attend these schools financially.
