  1. It’s great to see Johnny Mathis here. He’s missing from almost every other list of singers or entertainers – completely missing. Yet, his album sales (per Guinness Book of Records) exceed 360 million. He has the second longest continuous billboard chart run (490 weeks) of any album ever released by anybody. He is a major popular music star, and deserves to be remembered and recognized as one of the greats.
