Do you have any tunes that you'd love to hear Jersey Boys' Tony and Grammy Award winner John Lloyd Young sing? Here's your chance!

Over the past few months, the award winning artist has been performing live virtual concerts from The Space in Las Vegas. On May 1st at 9pm ET / 6pm PT, fans can catch his next show titled John Lloyd Young By Request: Live from Las Vegas. Every song on the show's set list from John's vast repertoire will be selected by you, the fans!

Leading up to the concert, be sure to keep an eye on JLY's Twitter and Instagram as well as the John Lloyd Young Friends Facebook page (You have until this April 15th's Thursday night on Facebook!).

After seeing him in concert for years and years we have so many favorites of John's including "Show and Tell", "My Eyes Adored You" and honestly our very fave - his ultimate crooner's take on "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me." (can this count as our vote JLY!?).

We wanted to turn the tables on this fantastic by request idea. If John was able to create his own "by request" concert of any artist singing any song, which would he choose? Well, talk about a Vegas Lucky 7! Read on as the spectacular John Lloyd Young walks us through his own "by request" wish list featuring seven outstanding performances. We'll see you at the Sinatra concert!

Frank Sinatra, "One for My Baby"

"I've played so many intimate spaces over the years, including the little club in Palm Springs, the Purple Room, where the Rat Pack got their start and their name. I imagine that room, smoke-filled, liquor flowing, whenever I hear this song."

Nell Carter, "Mean To Me"

"I think this is one of the most beautiful songs featured in the Broadway show "Ain't Misbehavin'." Mostly because of Nell Carter's haunting rendition. I used to sing along to this (in her key!) years before I ever knew I'd sing some of those same stratospheric high notes later in my own career."

Eartha Kitt, "I Want to Be Evil"

"I had my big breakout on Broadway a few years before Eartha Kitt passed away. So I was privileged to be able to meet her a few times and see her perform at special events I was invited to. She was a feral stage creature. Whenever I've played the Carlyle Hotel, where she famously headlined several times, I imagine her incinerating the murals of the room with this signature song."

Jim Morrison, "The End"

"Languid, intense, trippy, trance-like. Jim Morrison is one of my top vocal idols."

Karen Carpenter, "Superstar"

"Bar none, one of the greatest voices in pop, ever. She was gone long before I ever could have heard her sing live. This is a favorite."

Luther Vandross, "The Impossible Dream"

"I sing this arrangement. Luther did this with the Royal Philharmonic in London. Michael Feinstein helped me to track down the charts for this, and I sang it, with Michael conducting, for the Pasadena Pops. But no one does it better than the master."

Dusty Springfield, "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me"

"You don't. Just watch my next livestream, ok? Thanks."
