Morris Albert (b. September 7, 1951) is a Brazilian-born singer-songwriter and producer who became famous during the mid 1970s. He is best known for the 1975 soft rock smash, "Feelings."
Born Mauricio Alberto Kaisermann in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he began his musical career as a singer and guitarist for a number of bands and in 1972, released his first single, "Feel The Sunshine" (b/w "Good Morning Mr. Sun"), a success in his homeland which was followed by several more singles. By 1974, he had released what would become his signature song, "Feelings," the title track to his 1975 debut album.
Albert debuted on the U.S. charts in mid 1975 with "Feelings," which reached #2 on the Adult Contemporary chart and became a Pop/Rock Top 10 hit. This smash also became a top hit in Canada, Australia, South Africa, the U.K., and several other European countries and soon after went gold. Albert followed up in late 1975 with another soft rock ballad, "Sweet Loving Man," a minor Pop/Rock hit that made the Adult Contemporary Top 20.
After his peak in commercial fame in the mid 1970s, Morris Albert released many singles and ten more albums through 2004 that include a self-titled 1976 LP.
