Johnny Mathis developed
his appreciation for music as a small boy when his father taught him his first song, My Blue Heaven. His father, Clem, continued
to school Johnny with many songs and routines. Out of his six siblings, Mathis was the most passionate and eager to learn
all about music. Johnny participated in school functions, sang in the church choir, performed at community events and performed
for visitors in the home as well as amateur shows in the San Francisco area. While Johnny excelled in music he also excelled
as an athlete. His original intention when he enrolled at San Francisco State College was to become an English and physical
education teacher. He even set a high jump record of 6'-5-1/2" while he was there, which is still on the College's Top 15
list. After introduced to a Sunday afternoon jam session by a friend, Johnny soon traded in the track field for the stage.
Once the Black Hawk nightclub co-owner heard him sing, she was sold on managing his career. And this was only just the beginning
for Mathis' storied career.
Did you know Johnny Mathis gave up his chance to become a member
of the USA Olympic Team? It's true! After garnering additional fame as a high jumper at San Francisco State, he was asked
to attend the trials for the 1956 Olympic teams. But at the same time, Mathis was asked by Columbia Records in New York to
initialize his first recording session. So Mathis chose high notes over high jumps. And after seeing him perform live in concert,
you will be glad he did! Head to StubHub to pick up some tickets for a Johnny Mathis show. And hurry; tickets for this legendary
singer go fast!
Johnny Mathis Concert Tour
Johnny Mathis' debut album featured a collection of jazz-oriented
versions of popular standards entitled: Johnny Mathis: A New Sound in Popular Song. It featured jazz musicians like John Lewis,
Gil Evans and Teo Macero; and tunes like Angel Eyes, Babalu and Easy to Love. The album garnered only moderate success because
of the lack of interest in jazz vocal albums at the time. But Mathis stayed in New York and landed some shows at some of the
Big Apple's top clubs like The Blue Angel, Basin Street East and Village Vanguard. Mathis is still hitting top-drawer nightclubs
to this day. See if he is headed to a venue near you, but checking right here on StubHub. Why not indulge in a night out with
