Jimmy W. Johnson started singing at an early age in his home church in Eastern North Carolina. As a teenager, his vocal abilities and uncanny resemblance to Elvis gained him fame around Memphis.

He began touring the Southeastern United States with several well known Beach Bands. While performing, he met Clyde Bailey, manager for Jackie Wilson. Mr. Bailey immediately recognized the similarities and charisma of the "King of Rock-n-Roll," thus began Jimmy W.'s career.

In 1990, his recording, "Tying Yellow Ribbons Round the USA" became the number one song played on Armed Forces Radio Network during Operation Desert Storm. The recording earned him recognition from the pentagon.

Jimmy has performed for and been endorsed by Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Records and the man who discovered Elvis Presley.

"THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IN YOU AND ELVIS IS THAT ELVIS CAME FIRST" Sam Phillips 1991

Jimmy W. is probably best known for his national hit, "The Tomahawk Chop," which he performed live on ESPN during the 1992 World Series. This celebration of the Atlanta Braves was seen by more than 80 million viewers.

Jimmy W. has performed throughout the Southeast, Atlantic City, Las Vegas and Carnival Cruise Lines.
