CLEARWATER - Johnny Mathis, the crooner who has likely contributed more to romantic interludes (or dreams of them) than any other for more than 55 years, returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall Thursday, Feb. 6, at 7:30 p.m.
Johnny Mathis, whose rich, warm, velvet voice has brought us melodies so important to American pop music, such as Chances Are, Misty, It’s Not For Me To Say, Wonderful! Wonderful!, The Twelfth of Never, A Certain Smile and many more). He has had two songs inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
In 1998, he made the famous Hall’s list with Chances Are and in 2002, he made the list again with Misty. Most impressive of all is his 2003 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
Mathis is one of only five recording artists to have Top 40 hits spanning each of the four decades following 1955. Amazingly, his second No. 1 hit single, Too Much, Too Little, Too Late (recorded with Deniece Williams), came almost 21 years after his very first No. 1 hit single Chances Are.
