Seen by many as one of Barbados’ best male vocalists and performers, and cemented in history as one of its top models, Ronnie Morris has quickly risen up the entertainment ladder since becoming the youngest ever finalist in the Richard Stoute Teen Talent Contest at age 12.
His trailblazing track record of victories in talent competitions both locally and internationally has secured his standing and earned him respect in his homeland.
These victories include winning the St. Michael Song Contest, and a massive haul of seven National Independence Festival Of The Creative Arts Awards. He has also made it to the finals of the Party Monarch, Digicel Rising Stars, Barbados Song Contest, Over 21 and Junior Calypso Monarch (where he placed third in 1997) contests.
In 2003 he claimed his biggest success in competition, as he made history by placing fifth out of fifty contestants from across the globe at the Mr. World contest, held in London, and seen by a television audience of over 800 million worldwide.
Ronnie also got the opportunity to open the show with a rousing performance of Elton John’s Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me, after being announced as the winner of the award for Outstanding Talent.
That single achievement was a crowning glory in his career as a model, confirming him, without a shadow of a doubt, as one of the most successful male models in his country''s history, having previously won the Spirit Of The Nation Gala, the Roots Experience Contest and the Mr. Barbados- World contest.
His careers as a singer and model have taken him to perform in Trinidad, Aruba (International Male Model Contest), Venezuela (World Youth Festival), New York, London, Lincoln (UK), Montserrat, St. Lucia and Guadeloupe, where he was a featured act at the Festival Of Song and Dance.
His record sales (including solo projects and several compilations) have exceeded 25, 000 units sold to date, and he has landed four hits on the HOTT Top 20 Chart, Barbados’ most competitive annual airplay chart. His debut single Solitude spent several weeks on the Dance World Reggae Singles Chart, where it peaked at number 6, and was the 1 local reggae single for four weeks.
Ronnie has also been featured on E! Entertainment Television, BBC, NBC and CNN and has high hopes of someday winning a Grammy Award and recording a duet with vocal legend Whitney Houston.
This entertainment mogul of the future is currently pouring most of his time into his company, the Timeless Barbados Entertainment Agency, of which he is Director and Founder. The agency is also a major production company in Barbados, with some of its major events being the Barbados Music Awards and the Hip-Hop Festival among others.
In 2007 he released his first full-length Soul / Dance album, entitled Deception. The title track became a moderate hit on local radio, and he performed the track before over 4,000 screaming fans as he opened for U.S. platinum recording star Ne-Yo. In August 2007 the track debuted on the official Top 40 Chart of Guyana, just days before he performed at that country''s sold-out Fashion Week.
Now signed to NadurBiz Entertainment and Got Rhythm in a joint management agreement, he released his self-titled Pop / R&B album in January, and is currently preparing an official launch for the album.
