Morris Albert (born Maurício Alberto Kaisermann; 7 September 1951[1] in São Paulo, SP, Brazil) is a Brazilian singer and songwriter.

Albert is best known as a one-hit wonder for his 1975 international hit single "Feelings", a soft rock piece that hit the top 10 in both the United States and United Kingdom based on a melody composed by Loulou Gasté. (Albert originally claimed the melody as his own, but was later successfully sued by Gasté.[2]) The single sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the RIAA on 13 November 1975.[3]
