Johnny Mathis Biography

Early life: Mathis was born in Gilmer, Texas, United States, in 1935, the fourth of seven children of Clem Mathis and Mildred Boyd. Mathis began learning songs and routines from his father. His first song was “My Blue Heaven”. Mathis started singing and dancing for visitors at home, at school, and at church functions.

Mathis studied with Cox for six years, learning vocal scales and exercises, voice production, classical, and operatic singing. He is one of the relatively few popular singers who received years of professional voice training that included opera.

The first band he sang with was formed by his high school friend Merl Saunders. Mathis was a star athlete at George Washington High School in San Francisco. He was a high jumper and hurdler, and he played on the basketball team.


Career: Johnny Mathis LP record album was released in late 1956 instead of waiting until the first quarter of 1957. In late 1956, Mathis recorded two of his most popular songs: “Wonderful! Wonderful!” and “It’s Not For Me To Say”. Also that year, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer signed him up to sing the latter song in the movie Lizzie (1957).

Critics called him “the velvet voice”. Mathis also appeared during this period on ABC’s The Pat Boone Chevy Showroom, as did fellow African-American entertainers Ella Fitzgerald and Pearl Bailey.

In 1958, Johnny’s Greatest Hits was released. The album spent an unprecedented 490 consecutive weeks through 1967 (nine and a half years) on the Billboard top 100 album charts including three weeks at number one. It held the record for the most number of weeks on the top Billboard 200 albums in the US for 15 years until Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon reached 491 weeks in October 1983.
