changing a grayscale ad to a spot colour - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Greetings: I am sure there is a simple solution to this but I cannot find the solution in the help file. I have a grayscale page of 10 different ads and they need to be changed to a spot colour. When I select all and click on the colour swatch it does not affect the fill and stroke. The gradients still remain a grayscale. How do I change it. Thanks in advance....

    Using an opacity mask might do the job.
