Johnny The Oldies Singer Honored At Disney World
Long Island NY singer John Cannella known professionally as "Johnny The Oldies Singer" was recently honored with a parade at Disney for his service in the U.S. Navy
By: Senior Entertainment Long Island NY
The tribute ceremony included an honor guard salute to Johnny, the playing of the National Anthem and the singing of God Bless America and was witnessed by the Cannella Family along with a host of dignitaries and a large Disney audience.
The huge American Flag at Disney World's main square was lowered from it's pole and presented to Mr. Cannella along with a personalized certificate recognizing and memorializing his military service.
Johnny, flanked by a uniformed military honor guard and his grandchildren Aidan and Kaleigh, then led a marching band parade down Disney's Main Street to the cheers of the crowd.
Cannella, who is a professional New York entertainer, has performed over the decades since his Naval service as both a NY doowop group lead singer and more recently as a solo vocalist. He currently performs in a New York solo act entitled "Songs Of The Greats" in which he sings his impressionist renditions of hit cover songs originally recorded by guys like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin , Elvis Presley, Johnny Mathis, Engelbert Humperdink, Sammy Davis, Bobby Darin, Billy Joel, Neil Diamond, Frankie Valli and Nat King Cole to name just a few. Johnny utilizes his group singer experience in performing songs of the great golden oldies groups like the Beatles, Four Seasons (Jersey Boys) , Drifters, Duprees, Platters and many more.
Johnny recently celebrated his 50th Anniversary in the entertainment business having started as a doowop group lead singer as a teen in 1962. Ironically, says Johnny, "the bulk of my entertainment business today is in helping couples and their families celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary."
Cannella is still a regular on the New York metro entertainment circuit performing at both public and private events like weddings, anniversary parties, birthday parties, holiday parties, corporate events, ny doowop concerts, and "a lot" of seniors parties and events. He also does complimentary performances for Veteran fundraisers as well as children's causes such as St Jude Chidren's Hospital.
In addition to singing, Johnny offers DeeJay and Emcee services for full parties with cocktail, dinner and dance music of all genre and has gained a reputation as "New York's Singing DJ"
