About Brent Morgan

Brent Morgan is one of the top broadcasters on YouNow, with nearly 1 billion views of his BrentMorganMusic live streams to date. He creates often intimate videos performing acoustic covers of songs ranging from Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” to Shawn Mendes’s “Stitches” to *NSYNC’s “It’s Gonne Be Me.” His soft, drawling croon captures emotions that sometimes feel deeper than the originals themselves. 145K+ followers agree, donating to his GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the recording of an EP filled with his original music. The Alabaman is a regular Editor’s Choice on YouNow, and with his following it looks like he will stay there for some time to come.
