Morgan James

"A phenomenal talent whose feel for classic soul music is bone deep...This woman is on fire." -- The New York Times

Morgan James is a Juilliard trained singer, actress, songwriter and recording artist in New York City.

Morgan recently co-produced and starred in an all-female concept recording of "Jesus Christ Superstar" entitled "She Is Risen".   She independently released her studio albums of original soul music, entitled Memphis Magnetic, and A Very Magnetic Christmas recorded to analog tape in Memphis, Tennessee.  Other albums include "Reckless Abandon", which prompted the Huffington Post to call MJ the "Brightest Breakout Artist of the Year". Last year, Morgan took on a full album cover of the Beatles' iconic 'White Album' to celebrate the 50th anniversary; available on CD, vinyl, digital and full length concept video on her YouTube channel.  She also took on Joni Mitchell's "Blue" and covered it in its entirety.  Morgan recorded two full-length albums with Epic Records: "Hunter", an album of original R&B, and "Morgan James Live, a celebration of Nina Simone".  All of her music can be found on all streaming platforms, and hard copies on her website or at shows.

On Broadway, Morgan was in five back-to-back original companies: The Addams Family (starring Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth), Wonderland, Godspell and Motown: The Musical, and as a guest at Kristin Chenoweth's For The Girls.

With viral sensation Postmodern Jukebox and with her own YouTube channel, Morgan's music videos have accumulated more than 260 million views (and climbing).

About Mission Theater

Experience a slice of Portland history. What is now known simply as “the Mission” was originally home to the Swedish Mission Covenant congregation in the early 20th century, and despite its staid, buttoned up appearance, this place now hosts live music, video dance nights and special events on select nights each month. 

History

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub to event space, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
