BREAKTHROUGH WORLD TOUR RECAP
During the BREAKTHROUGH World Tour, the Quinton Morris Project served over 2,500 students across five continents! The tour featured Quinton performing, lecturing, and teaching about music and entrepreneurship in diverse locations around the world, with a special emphasis on community service and educational outreach in under-resourced communities.

At the conclusion of the tour, we asked Que five questions about his travels:


1. What made the BREAKTHROUGH World Tour unique?
A:  What made BREAKTHROUGH so different from your typical artist tour is it was multilayered.  I performed, lectured, showed my BREAKTHROUGH Short Film/Music Video, taught, and did community music projects.  My team and I worked very closely with each presenter to cater our events to each venue’s specific needs and desires  No two events or venues were the same, which allowed me to connect on a very deep level with each respective community.  It was very liberating!

2. What is your secret for staying stress-free while on the road?

A: I have really tried to adopt the attitude that it’s not necessarily about the circumstances that occur in our lives, but rather how we respond to them.  There have been lots of twists and turns that have happened in planning and performing on the tour.  To stay stress-free, I always remind myself of why I’m doing this tour and what my mission is.  Usually if I am stressed, that generally gets rid of it quickly.

3. What was the longest flight you had on tour?
A: Tanzania.  It was 22 hours!

4. What was the last book you read on a plane?
A: Joel Osteen’s I Declare: 31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life.

5. What's the last movie you watched on a plane?
With students in Arusha, Tanzania.

A: Straight Outta Compton (I know, quite a comparison from my previous answer! LOL).
