PJ Morton, Maroon 5's keyboardist and Grammy Award-winning solo artist, has returned to his gospel roots with the release of his first faith-album, Gospel According to PJ

Morton collaborated with an all-star cast of gospel artists for the project, including Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams and the Clark Sisters, among many others. The album will be released on Aug. 28.

Morton grew up in the church and was immersed in gospel music as the son of two pastors in New Orleans, Louisiana. His father, Bishop Paul S. Morton, was also successful in the entertainment industry as a gospel artist known for the singles, "Let It Rain" and "I'm Still Standing."

The musician, who was expected to follow in his father's footsteps, distanced himself from his roots and became an R&B artist.
