The Johnny Mathis fans in this series of photos are all personal friends of mine, some that I have known for as far back as 40 years. Sadly, some of them have passed away now. I feel that all of them, including myself, could easily wish to sing to John, "You Are The Sunshine of My Life." Instead, he is singing it for us. Most of these nice people have been guests in my home, and most of them I took to visit John's Rojon office, at either Hollywood or Burbank. I think of each one of them with good thoughts of the times we spent together, over these many years.
Alice, Angie, Ann, Berit, Ann, Thelma, Carol, Frances, David, Geraldine, Gerry, Jean, Jill, Jo, Joan, Luiz, Margarita, Beverly, MariaEsther, Marcello, Melanie, Merle, Nora, Peggy, Raymond, Robin, Sharon, Sylvia, Mary, Marilyn, Lynn, Diane. Thanks for the memories.
The only person in this video that I have never met is Bob, the great guy in the Johnny T-shirt, at the end. And he is the one who helped me put this video together.
"You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" was originally released on Johnny's Columbia Records KILLING ME SOFTLY WITH HER SONG, in 1973. I was at the recording studio at the session to watch the orchestra record their part of this terrific track.
