Cher, Billie Holiday, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt, Stevie Nicks, Diana Ross or Elvis Presley -- you never quite know who's going to show up when vocal/visual impersonator Jimmy James opens his mouth. Initially famous for his spot-on tribute to Marilyn Monroe, James has blossomed into one of the most dazzling and versatile performers on the planet, not only acting like icons of stage and screen, but singing like them, too.
