If your like me and hear the phrase Chances Are, you break out singing the familiar tune by Johnny Mathis. His voice so distinctive and a demeanor of kindness make up this truly gifted man. We had the pleasure of seeing him the other night in concert and left with such happiness in our hearts.
To be in a beautiful Theater, watching his performance along with a full orchestra was truly a treat! At 79, he still delivers an extraordinary performance. The quality and tone of his voice haven't changed much at all. He still hits those high notes and with his impeccable style is captivating. I was singing along at times (although not to loud to annoy the people around me Ha Ha) and with each introduction by the orchestra reflected back to when I heard them in the past.
Truly he is a man that enjoys his passion for singing and for me it was an opportunity to engage in the great feeling of a live performance. Many times a song can bring you back to a memorable time and your body sends a signal you know like a song comes out of the heart!!! One that comes to mind right now was when the Beatles had just come out in the States and I remember going to Roosevelt Field Shopping Center to buy the album. I can remember Sam Goody's record store, the weather that day and the excitement. My Dad had driven me and the day was so much fun. A simple time yet remembering it vividly today, makes today special as well! Listening to great music with sincere words for me is like a meditation where the only objective is to enjoy that moment!
We had the opportunity to meet Johnny after the Show and once again was touched by his sincerity. Look at us enjoying the Red Carpet with him!
Thanks again Johnny for a wonderful evening of Music and making hearts like mine continue to sing!
