Johnny Mathis

He is a living legend with more than 60 years in the music business. Singer and songwriter Johnny Mathis has sold millions of records worldwide. He’s recorded nearly 80 albums since first stopping the charts back in the 1950’s with hits like “Chances Are” and “Too Much, Too Little, Too Late.”

A sublime vocalist - known as the voice of romance- and one of the most enduring and timeless performers in musical history, Mathis has had three songs inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

His latest album, Johnny Mathis Sings The Great New American Songbook, features Mathis singing current hits from artists like Adele, Pharrell, and Bruno Mars.
