|Johnny Mathis uses a fitting description when he talks about the connection he makes with his fans onstage…”It’s a love affair!”
At the start of his career, Mathis’ vocal depth and innocent image made him a favorite with female fans looking for an alternative to the brash rock of Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. His voice, then and now, was immediately recognizable and unique: a rich, honeyed tenor that transcended social and racial barriers.
In the more than 50 years since his first hit records, Mathis has successfully wooed several generations of fans through early hits like “Wonderful, Wonderful,” “Chances Are” and “It’s Not for Me to Say,” and later successes, including 1978′s chart-topping “Too Much, Too Little, Too Late,” a duet with Deniece Williams. His 2011 album, “Let It Be Me: Mathis In Nashville,” earned a Grammy® nomination for the Lifetime Grammy Achievement winner. Enjoy a warm and “Wonderful, Wonderful” evening listening to the silky, sultry sensuous sounds of this legendary romanticist.
“…Johnny Mathis still has the magic of romance…
Mathis was terrific, singing romantic songs with three musicians he brought along, and one of the
finest symphony orchestras….”
