Morris Albert

AKA Maurício Alberto Kaisermann

Born: 7-Sep-1951
Birthplace: São Paulo, Brazil

Gender: Male
Race or Ethnicity: White
Occupation: Singer/Songwriter

Nationality: Brazil
Executive summary: Feelings

Wrote the soft rock staple hit Feelings, which reached #6 in 1975. The song itself is incredibly insipid and often ridiculed. Unfortunately, Morris Albert had plagiarized the melody from a 1956 French song, Louis Gasté's Pour Toi ("For You"). He lost a 1985 copyright lawsuit, and was ordered to pay a $500,000 settlement plus 88% of future royalties. It was Albert's only hit.
