There are no words deep enough. Johnny Mathis is a gift to this world from God. He was given many gifts which include his voice, his sweet spirit, his looks and grace beyond grace, and style. His father was the same ~ gifted and gracious. Mr Mathis worked/s in a very dedicated way to give us all as much of his gifts as he can. He is the sweetest, kindest, most generous and most humble human being. I had the pleasure of meeting his father, and I have had the gift and honor of seeing Mr. Mathis 3 times thus far, with 2 more concerts planned. I was even able to receive a hug & handshake & picture with him at the American Jewish University in Nov 2013. I feel blessed. I watch his videos & interviews from all the years, and all of them prove what a gifted, sweet man he is. He moves me & millions of people to the heart & soul & sometimes to tears...to the core of our beings...Mr. Mathis blesses us with his perfect velvet tones and gives the perfect feelings to the words of each & every song he sings. To me, he sings songs that other people made hits much better and with more feeling, and I wish he had sung them first. He has actually helped heal me from tramatic times. No other singer/person has affected me this way. And I love all music, and have seen many performers.
God Bless Johnny Mathis...I pray for his happiness and health and peace, as he has given me and all who love him his sweet self.
