After being home for three months, PJ Morton is still not ready to accept “the new normal” as a result of COVID-19, which has canceled tours, major concerts, and live events all around the world. 

He admits he misses everything about the live experience, but he’s willing to wait, in hopes of giving his fans a live show one day soon.

“I miss the people, the energy from the people. There’s nothing like it,” he tells ABC Audio. “I hope this isn’t fully the new normal.

“There’s always a need to physically gather,” he added, “But, I’m willing to wait as long as that takes.”

While waiting in quarantine, PJ said this is the time to “grow and be creative.”

“That’s been my thought patterns during all of this: diversify and stay creative,” he tells ABC Audio. “So, while I’d miss touring a lot, I just fill it with things I wasn’t able to do because of being on the road as much as I was before all of this.”

As we await his next tour, tune into PJ’s music trivia game show The Culture, airing Wednesday night, at 8 p.m. EST on PJ Morton’s YouTube. This week’s special guests are vocalists Chrisette Michele, Brik.Liam and female rap lyricist Rapsody.
