Classical/Crossover singer Daniel Mata will perform with Ken Double and the Mighty Wurlitzer at the 37th Annual Ken Double Variety Show, June 8, 2019.
Daniel Mata just concluded his senior year at Belmont University in Nashville, TN after being awarded the prestigious Hearst Scholarship. Born in Venezuela and one of triplets, Daniel’s journey with his family to the U.S. is a great success story.
His vocal skills were apparent early in life, and at age 14, he won the Stars of Tomorrow contest in Atlanta; has performed on the stage of the Atlanta Fox Theatre; sung at the Basilica at St. Peter’s in Rome; performed with the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra; and is proudly announcing his first CD recording, Born To Sing, a dual effort with Ken Double at the organ.
He blends a gift for opera; light classics; and as his heritage would indicate, is adept as a “cross-over” artist singing pops Latin hits as well as songs from the Great American Songbook. While preparing for graduate school, Daniel is delighted to join Ken at his 37th annual concert at the Long Center for the Performing Arts.

No Ken Double Variety Show is complete without that special Double touch, of course! Ken will accompany Daniel and perform solo as well at the console of the Mighty Wurlitzer — and as always we’ll screen a silent comedy short. This year you’ll be treated to Laurel and Hardy’s That’s My Wife (1929).
