Jimmy James

It's safe to say Jimmy James boasts one of the more colorful careers ever launched in San Antonio. Born James Jude Johnson in Laredo in an undisclosed year (he's "older than Britney but younger than Madonna"), he started impersonating Marilyn Monroe on a whim in the early 1980s and perfected the act flawlessly enough to land in an Atlantic City revue that led to talk show appearances (from Donahue to Geraldo), performances at high-profile events (for the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Joan Rivers and Elton John) and national advertising campaigns (including L.A. Eyeworks and Kenar). Although possibly known better by younger audiences for his original club hit "Fashionista," James is a wildly talented vocal impressionist who shifts effortlessly between such iconic voices as Cher, Elvis, Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland and Eartha Kitt. On Friday, James returns to San Antonio with "Hearing Is Believing," a cabaret style performance combining original songs, impressions and tributes ranging from "Hey There Lonely Girl" (Eddie Holman) to a "Disco Diva Medley" featuring the voices of Sylvester, Alicia Bridges, Donna Summer and Bette Midler.
