Johnny Mathis

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.

Mathis grew up in San Francisco, and began singing at school. While training to become a teacher, he was talent-spotted at a concert and signed by Columbia Records. He sang one of his first hits, "It's Not For Me To Say", in the film, Lizzie, in which he also had a small acting role. Around the same time, he had his first number one hit with "Chances Are".

Although frequently described as a "Romantic" singer, his vast discography contains Jazz, Traditional Pop, Brazilian & Spanish music, Soul, Soft Rock, and Broadway Show Tunes. His hit songs include "Wonderful Wonderful", "A Certain Smile", "Chances Are", "The Twelfth of Never", "Misty", "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late", and "I'm Coming Home", and the original recording of the Thom Bell-Linda Creed composition "Life Is a Song Worth Singing", later made popular by Soul/R&B vocalist Teddy Pendergrass. Mathis has recorded over 100 albums of original music and has sold more than 180 million albums worldwide.

Frank Sinatra used to privately refer to him as "The African Queen".
