In 1999, Morgan and Marty Sampson formed "United Live". Darlene Zschech, the worship pastor of Hillsong (1995-2007), had suggested to Morgan that they make an album with the youth worship team and, in 1999, they made their debut album called Everyday with Morgan and Sampson leading the team. Morgan continued to make four more albums with United Live until 2002. He decided that it was time for him to leave the group and pass the torch on to the next generation. His last album with Hillsong United, for the band name changed when he left, was To the Ends of the Earth. Replacing him as a worship leader of Hillsong United was Joel Houston, the son of the senior pastor of Hillsong, Brian Houston.
In 2005, Morgan signed with Rocketown Records, owned by Michael W. Smith. The company released his debut album in the United States, but four of the original songs were removed in favour of cover versions of Hillsong songs written by Morgan. In addition, the remaining songs were remixed and the resulting songs had a heavier feel when compared to the softer adult contemporary-style originals.
Morgan has toured extensively around the United States, Canada and Europe. His latest album, Everyone, contains Morgan's personal interpretation of his music and was mostly written in the previous 18 months, recorded in a big sounding, studio worship version without the congregational elements of live worship. Mainly featuring covers of previously released Hillsong songs written by Morgan, it was released in Australia on 2 October 2006.
