Today, my guest is Gary Morris. You might have heard the name before, and you’ve definitely heard his song “Wind Beneath my Wings.” 

Gary was massive in the ’80s, and had a fair few number one singles. He even played in the White House, and he tells the story of his trajectory of fame.

He sings a tune from his latest album which is awesome, and tells some great stories about getting into the industry.

Gary even shares with us a story of a UFO sighting he’s had, that he’s never shared publicly before! 

“People ask me what I’d do differently, and I say nothing, because I like where I am now.” – Gary Morris
