" Wow! This book should be a movie! It’s a powerful story of love and brotherhood across the racial divide at a time when our nation needs healing as never before. "

About the Author

Wm Morris headshot web_edited_edited_edi

William (Bill) H. Morris brings passion to whatever he pursues. A lifelong resident of Jackson, Mississippi, Morris is the founder and president of The William Morris Group, an industry-leading insurance consulting and marketing firm. He has won virtually every award in his industry, including inclusion in the Million Dollar Round Table for over 50 consecutive years. His other pursuits include writing, art and book collecting, photography and music. His photographs of his alma mater became a popular coffee table book, ​Ole Miss at Oxford: A Part of Our Heart and Soul. His love for the Doo wop/R&B music of his youth, coupled with his ability to connect with people and what he credits as divine leading, resulted in deep friendships with four of his musical heroes, three of whom were members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  As he shares in his memoir, ​This Magic Moment: My Journey of Faith, Friends, and the Father’s Love​, Morris lived every fans’ dream with his “brothers from another mother” for three decades joining them at major music events, singing with them on stage and speaking and singing at all of their funerals. Morris and his wife Camille have two grown daughters and five grandchildren.
