Nathan Morris grew up in Philadelphia with his brother Wanya, where he went to the local church and sang in the choir. While he was in fourth grade, Nathan was discovered by a vocal teacher who developed his singing skills, so Nathan could sing tenor, soprano, and baritone. He later studied at the Philadelphia High School for the Creative & Performing Arts, where he and Marc Nelson formed a band called Unique Attraction in 1985, with schoolmates George Baldi, Jon Shoats and Marguerite Walker joining them as well.
In 1987, Nathan’s brother Wanya joined the group, but Baldi, Shoats, and Walker all left after matriculation in 1988, so Nathan, Marc, and Wanya recruited Shawn Stockman, who was a soloist in the school’s choir, and they renamed the group to Boyz II Men, after New Edition’s song from the 1988 album called “Heart Break”. In 1991, they released their first studio album entitled “Cooleyhighharmony”, which achieved multi-platinum status with over nine million sales in the US alone. It reached No. 3 on U.S. Billboard 200, and No. 7 on the UK Albums Chart, helping the band members including Morris to increase his net worth significantly.
In 1994, Boyz II Men released their second album “II”, which recorded more than 12 million sales in the US, and achieved 12x platinum status, as well as platinum status in Europe with over a million sales, which only increased Nathan’s net worth. It also topped the US Billboard 200 and US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, and reached No. 17 position on the UK Albums Chart. Their next studio album “Evolution”, came out in 1997 and achieved double platinum status in the US, topping the U.S. Billboard 200 and peaked at No. 12 on the UK Albums Chart.
They recorded six more albums in the 2000s, including “Nathan Michael Shawn Wanya” (2000), “Full Circle” (2002), and “Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA” (2007). They weren’t as commercially successful or popular as those from the mid-90s, but still helped the members to improve their wealth. Most recently, they have released two more albums: “Twenty” (2011) and “Collide” (2014), and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in January 2012.
