His vocal coach is the same person who trained Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber, and R&B singer Usher. In fact, his very first video on his channel was a cover of Bieber’s song ‘Eenie Meenie’. People started taking notice of how talented Morris was, and by August 2014, his YouTube channel passed over 1B views. Since 2015, Morris has uploaded more than a hundred covers on his YouTube channel, with some original songs in between. His first original song was called ‘I Believe in You’, which came out in 2010. Then in August 2010, he released another song called ‘Just the Way You Are’, which was a duet with indie singer Tyler Ward. It soon became Morris’ very first song that was available for purchase on iTunes.

Morris may have had plenty of love interests shown off in his music videos and photoshoots, but in reality, he doesn’t have a girlfriend yet.
