Johnny Mathis: Still Bringing the Romance

Johnny Mathis

Robin Roth

Legendary Johnny Mathis, glowing with class and charisma, WOWED his audiences at the beautiful Las Vegas Hilton over Thanksgiving weekend. Walking out without introduction to a standing ovation only reminds us of what a true star this man is and what his music has given all of us over the years. Let’s face it, there is only one Johnny Mathis and he is truly better than ever. His voice was strong, passionate and clean. Furthermore, there is only one “king of romantic voices” and that voice, without a doubt, belongs to Johnny Mathis! He magically cast a spell of romance, love, and serenity over the entire crowd with his unique voice and calm presence. His performance was absolutely wonderful. If one was there without a loved one, a loved one was there in one’s heart. You can’t help it, sitting there listening to Johnny’s sweet, beautiful, ballads with his tender vocals that caress each and every lyric. Everyone was completely captivated, listening to Mathis sing hit after hit. It is so easy to sit back and listen to him, as he sings with such tremendous ease. The music he sings, whether it’s an up tune or ballad, just flows effortlessly from his heart. It was especially nice hearing him sing his holiday hits while sporting a Santa hat. This show simply put was fabulous, very festive, and quite LOVELY!

Appearing on the stage with Johnny Mathis were over 30 of the finest musicians (including a full string section, a harp, as well as keyboards, drum and complete horn sections) I have ever heard in my life. That in-and-of-itself was a musical experience! TRULY outstanding!

Mathis was born in Texas on Sept. 30, 1935, which is an unbelievable fact, as he only looks about 40 years old in person. In 1954, he enrolled at San Francisco State College with the intention of being and English and Physical Education teacher. Lucky for the world, fate changed his plans. Over the course of his career, Mathis has been honored by entertainment heads of state, as well as Presidents and Royalty. In 1972, he was awarded his own star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. He has also received two Grammy nominations, one for “Misty” and the other for “In a Sentimental Mood.” Johnny is one of only five recording artists to have Top 40 Hits spanning each of the four decades since 1955. In addition, he has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame two times so far. He was also awarded the prestigious Hitmaker Award.

There is something very special about seeing Johnny Mathis live and hearing him sing “Chances Are” and “Misty.” DON’T MISS HIM when he comes to your city! It is something very special to be a part of. Two warnings! DON’T walk in late and DON’T bring your young children. This is a night of perfect singing, LOVE and romance.

Stay tuned for my next article on the GREAT Barry Manilow, ALSO APPEARING AT THE LAS VEGAS HILTON….coming soon!
