Lane Brody Records With Legendary Johnny Mathis
The beautiful and multi-talented Lane Brody has collaborated with legendary singer Johnny Mathis to record two versions of "What A Wonderful World" for his recent Let It Be Me: Mathis In Nashville album.
The two artists got together earlier this year to record a standard version and a Christmas interpretation of the classic song, originally made famous by Louis Armstrong.
The two versions of the tune open and close Mathis' new album, which is now available for purchase at iTunes and Amazon.com.
“Johnny Mathis epitomized what I hoped to become as a singer and recording artist,” says Brody. “From every voice I ever heard, I chose his as the greatest. As a child and teenager, I did not go out like other kids did, I was in my room practicing, studying every album, every phrase and subtle nuance of his voice. I have never had a vocal coach, and I was told I did not need one because I sang properly, having learned from him. At 12, I had to lie to my parents in order to go to one of his concerts by myself. I sat in a bleacher way up high and cried through every note and word, which I knew by heart.”
