Singing legend Johnny Mathis comes to MSU's Wharton Center tonight. His career began at age 19 and has spanned decades’ worth of popular favorites.

He’s especially known for his holiday music, and his newest release features Christmas duets and will be out at the end of the month.

Mathis says one of the singers he most admired was Lena Horne.
