- Michael Morales (born April 25, 1963), is an American musician most known for the Top 40-charting songs, "Who Do You Give Your Love To?", (#15 Billboard Hot 100), and a cover version of The Romantics' "What I Like About You", (#28 Billboard Hot 100).

Born in San Antonio, Texas, he came from a musical family, (father, Henry, met his mother, Felicia, when the two were to perform together on a radio broadcast). As a child, Morales formed and played guitar, drums and piano in several bands including Crimson Sash. In 1980, he founded the popular band, The Max, in which he would perform until signing his first recording contract with PolyGram Records in 1988.

Morales released the self-titled Michael Morales in 1989. That CD garnered MTV airplay and landed three hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including "Who Do You Give Your Love To?", (peaked #15 Billboard Hot 100). Before releasing his second CD on PolyGram, Thump (1991), he founded Studio M in San Antonio. There he and brother, Ron Morales, have won four Grammy awards for CDs produced and recorded at Studio M. In 2000, Morales released his third CD on Major/MTM Records entitled That's The Way.

Aside from chart success, Morales's music can be heard in a number of feature films, including the 2000 Woody Allen film, Picking Up the Pieces, and the Cannes Film Festival winner, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, from 2005.

Morales has also worked with several big names such as Beyoncé, Def Leppard, Selena, Cee Lo Green, and more.

To date, Morales's works have been nominated for six Grammy awards and has won four of them. -


- Michael Morales, benefiting from the support of MTV, scored a couple of hits from his debut album, including a cover version of the Romantics' "What I Like About You." Born on April 25, 1963, in San Antonio, TX, Morales signed to Polygram Records in 1989. His self-titled debut, released that same year, spun off a hit with the first single, the hooky dance/rock track "Who Do You Give Your Love To?," which climbed into the Top 20 on the U.S. pop charts during the summer. "What I Like About You" was released as a follow-up and reached number 28, bettering the peak position of the Romantics' version, which fell short of the Top 40, and the album spent five months on the charts. The prophetically titled Thump arrived in 1991, failing to match its predecessor's success and generating only the minor hit "I Don't Wanna See You." Morales was dropped by his label and pursued producing and writing for others, including Selena, Flaco Jimenez, and the Texas Tornados. With brother Ron Morales, he has been nominated for five Grammy Awards and been awarded three, including one for engineering Selena's live album in 1993. In 1999, Michael Morales returned with That's the Way. -
