As for Morgan, he said he enjoys spreading a little love whether folks are taking videos or dismissing his smooth moves.

Some people have been taking videos of his moves and sharing to social media.

“Whether I’m getting attention or not, it’s not about me in the end,” said Morgan.

“Our time here isn’t long, it’s limited so, just using that time more wisely, I think that’s what this whole pandemic has encouraged and motivated me to do and forced a lot of people to do,” said Morgan. “To spend a lot of time with people we love and really be honest with them how much they mean to us.”
