Morgan Alumnus Anthony Brown receives a Certified Gold Single for recording of Worth!

Today was a  very special day at Morgan State University.  Tyscot Records honored Gospel Music artist and Morgan State alumnus Anthony Brown with a Certified Gold Single for his award-winning recording of “Worth!” 

The ceremony began around 11:40 AM in the Murphy Fine Arts Center Recital Hall.  As Chair of the department and former piano teacher of Anthony Brown, I welcomed everyone to the university.  After my words of welcome, Gospel Music artist Maurette Brown Clark gave remarks about her special relationship with Anthony.   Then, Gospel Music artist Stephen Hurd, read a letter from the Mayor of Baltimore, congratulating Anthony on his number one hit - "Worth."  Anthony then spoke about his journey to share his music with the world.  Finally, as a total surprise, Tyscot Records President Bryant Scott presented Anthony with a framed Gold-Single Certificate for his recording of “Worth” denoting over five-hundred thousand units sold!  

After all the official photos, Anthony honored the crowd on hand with an excerpt of him singing his single:  “Worth.”

What a great event for Anthony and the entire Morgan State Community!
