Patrice Morris is a native of Terry Mississippi, and an alumnus of Tougaloo College in Jackson, Mississippi, where she majored in voice. She is a proud member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
Patrice, a gifted vocalist, songwriter and speaker, began her singing career at the age of five. Her beautiful soprano voice and energetic presence have established her in the gospel music industry as an artist with a purpose and passion. She has ministered in song with many prominent gospel artists, including Daryl Coley, Andre and Sandra Crouch, Marvin Sapp and John P Kee. She has also made national television appearances on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), Candi Staton's "Say Yes, "Bobby Jones' "Gospelfest," and Vicki Winans' "Singsation."
Patrice's recording repertoire began with her 1999 debut release, "Trust Him." Her 2001 release, "Holiness is the Way," was followed by "All My Praise" in 2005. Her fourth CD, "In Your Presence," will be released this year. These projects highlight Patrice's proficient skills as a vocalist and composer.
Patrice Morris is also a speaker, soloist, and praise and worship leader for a wide variety of events, including marriage conferences and women's seminars. Her own commitment to marriage and family has been the foundation of this extremely important part of her music ministry. Florence LaRue, the original member of The 5th Dimension, remembered hearing Patrice sing at a marriage conference and asked her to lend her amazing voice to the GRAMMY winning group when the group's soprano left to pursue other ventures. Patrice manages to maintain her busy solo career with dedication and excellence when not on the road with the group.
In addition to her solo career and performing with The 5th Dimension, Patrice is an active member of the praise team and is on the ministerial staff of Cathedral of Praise International Ministries in Rialto, California were Bishop Craig W. Johnson, Th.D, is senior pastor. Patrice is grateful to God, her husband, Kenneth, and their three wonderful young adults for their love and support in helping her to manage such a blessed career with grace and professionalism.
