GARY MORRIS . . .Sometimes in life you come across someone who however unassuming, opens their mouth to sing and this pure, on-key, in-tune music comes out with what appears to be absolutely no effort. When you come across someone like this, you suddenly realize what true talent is really all about. Don't know who Gary Morris is? Do you remember his hit: ""Wind Beneath My Wings"?
I attend a lot of music concerts and I've heard a lot of people sing. Some are terrific and I'm hooked right away, and others aren't that great and I start looking at the clock. But until I heard Gary sing, I had never heard anyone who had this kind of a God-given talent before. He opens his mouth and hits every note of whatever song he sings, every time. It's almost like he can't sing a wrong note, off-key, or out-of-tune. It's a winner every time. I really don't know how to describe the range he has or his ability. It defies description. If you get a chance to see Gary in concert, you are in for a rare treat. He sings so effortlessly.
Gary has a new CD coming out in November, or rather one song from the CD. He is releasing the new CD one song at a time. "If You Were Mine" will be released in November and I can't wait. What a great song. I got chills when he was singing it and when I get chills when someone is singing, I know I'm in the midst of something special.
But then into every musical performance a little out of the ordinary must fall of course, case in point the song he sang with the opening lyrics, "my toes need a clippin', my dog needs a dippin'". . . Also, award winning, and if not, it was good for a laugh. This from a vocalist who has also performed and sang in "La Boheme" and "Les Miserables" on Broadway. An incredible range in a variety of musical styles and yet, it's good to know that he doesn't take himself to seriously.
Gary is taking a tour around the country and stopping at all of these little out of the way small local venues, like the McPherson Opera House, so if he comes to your town be sure and check him out.
