It was 1957 when 21-year-old Johnny Mathis recorded the romantic ballad “Chances Are.” When the legendary singer performs at Shea’s Performing Arts Center on April 15 – more than 60 years later – it’s almost guaranteed he will perform his signature song as he has thousands of times before. And that’s fine with him. “A big thing in my life is trying not to get too sar…
