Johnny Mathis (born September 30, 1935 in Gilmer, Texas) is an American popular singer, and one of the few remaining male vocalists associated with Traditional Pop music. In 1989, she performed her debut concert in Carnegie Hall, singing a collection of songs by George Gershwin. She waited eight years to come out with another solo album, and in 1987, she released Another Woman in Love, a collection of her favorite songs by various American composers and a few original songs, all containing solo piano accompaniment. The next year, she released State of the Heart, a fully orchestrated album containing contemporary love songs, including the original version of "On My Way to You" (written by Alan & Marilyn Bergman and Michel LeGrand). She also returned to touring and performing in concerts and began establishing herself as a classy, jazzy performer of nightclubs. She slowly returned to music in the mid-eighties, contributing songs to musical soundtracks and recording for various-artist compilations.

She continued her theatrical career throughout the eighties and even originated the role of Mary in the off-Broadway production of Brownstone in 1985. She then performed in two productions with the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera - The Sound of Music (1981, as Maria) and South Pacific (1982, as Nellie Forbush). In 1981 she made her Broadway debut as Mabel in a revival of Gilbert & Sullivan's musical The Pirates of Penzance. At the beginning of the 1980s, McGovern gave up movie themes to begin a career on Broadway, despite the fact that she never had any acting experience.

In 1980, she made a cameo appearance as the singing nun, Sister Angelina, in the comedy-disaster movie Airplane!. Toward the end of the decade, she recorded "Different Worlds" (the theme from a short-lived TV sitcom entitled "Angie"). These two songs (along with "The Morning After") led the media to call McGovern "the Disaster Theme Queen." McGovern continued touring and recording albums and movie songs (including "Can You Read My Mind", the love theme from the 1978 film Superman) throughout the decade of the seventies. The former (though not a hit) won an Oscar, and the latter received an Oscar nomination.

In 1974, she recorded two movie themes: "We May Never Love Like This Again" (from the disaster film The Towering Inferno, in which she made a short appearance) and "Wherever Love Takes Me" (from the British disaster film Gold). The song was a failure at first, but after the song won an Oscar for Best Original Song, it began to quickly climb the pop charts making its way up to #1 in 1973. That year, McGovern was hired (sight unseen) to record the song which led to her signing with 20th Century Records. Her singing caught the attention of Russ Regan (who was the head of 20th Century Records at the time) in 1972 when he heard a demo she had recorded; at the same time, he was searching a singer to record "The Morning After" (theme from The Poseidon Adventure) for release as a record.

After graduating from high school in 1967, she worked as a secretary and performed part-time as a folk singer. Her influences include Barbra Streisand. She decided at age eight that she wanted to be a professional singer and she developed a taste for various types of music including jazz, showtunes, oldies, and folk. As a child, she would listen to a barbershop quartet (which her father was a member of) rehearse in their home; she was told by her elders that she began singing at the tender age of three and would sometimes sing herself to sleep things she heard on the radio.
