John Lloyd Young recently performed at a gala honoring director Des McAnuff in La Jolla. Here’s JLY’s incredible rendition of “Cara Mia”!

  3. JLY is incredible!! I think he plans on singing this song during his Lincoln Center concert in February. I am happy I have tickets for both performances that night!

  6. “Cara Mia,” for those who don’t know, was made famous by Jay and the Americans in the 1960s. It is one of my all-time favorite songs, and John does it justice. I can’t wait to see more!

  7. Good Lord, if this isn’t the ultimate TEASE! How am I supposed to get through the next 9 weeks now? If this is any indication how the February 23rd show is going to go, they will need to pull us all of the ceiling!

  9. JLY sounds great. I am so excited about his two concerts on February 23, 2008. I was lucky to get tickets for both performances for my husband and I.
    It is wonderful to see how JLY is such a fabulous entertainer, in addition to such a wonderful and caring young man.
    Can’t wait until Feb 23 !!!

  12. I just saw this on you tube and John’s voice is like “butta”. OMG, I cannot get that song out of my mind. He MUST do a CD!!!! Any tix for sale for Feb 23rd that do not require a wheelchair??? Gayle Kamen-Weinstein in Houston

  13. JLY sounds great, and I imagine what a marvelous reception he’ll get on the 23rd. But Gary, if you think I’m gonna be the one to pull you down from the ceiling, fuggedaboudit!

    All of us are so proud of John already, and I’m sure he’ll give us so much more reason to salute him, both as a talent and a human being. Quoting Jay Black of Jay & The Americans, “only in America” can we have “this magic moment” of seeing JLY perform. Go to it, JLY!

  14. If somebody don’t grab up JLY to make a CD, there is something wrong with the music business in this country!! He sings Cara Mia with no effort whatsoever…like it just flows from his heart. It is absolutely beautiful…it leaves me wanting so much more. I know Jay is proud of him.

  15. Anyone, Anywhere,
    An extra (don’t fall down laughing hysterically) ticket for the 23rd,
    there is a single taker here. David

  16. Cara Mia is truly one of my favorite songs and JLY sings it to perfection. To say he’s talented is a gross understatement. I can’t get enough of hearing him sing. I missed out getting tickets to his Lincoln Center performance. They sold out so quickly. Please add another performance somewhere soon, JLY. I so miss hearing that fabulous voice!

  17. I don’t know about other computers out there, but I must say that this incomparable rendition of ‘Cara Mia’ by John Lloyd continues to melt the snowflakes right off my computer screen!
