There are only a handful of genuine American music legends who are still performing for audiences across the nation. And one of them is coming to San Diego on Sunday.

Singer Johnny Mathis is bringing his "Voice of Romance" tour to Copley Symphony Hall at the Jacobs Music Center. Mathis, who will be 84 at the end of this month, is marking his 63rd year as a recording artist. His hits create a dreamy soundtrack in American pop music and he’s still making audiences swoon.

Mathis joined Midday Edition Tuesday to talk about his career and what he gets out of performing after more than 60 years.
