Jimmy Velvit is an American rock and roll singer, who began his career in the 1960s. His real name is James Mullins, originally from Coalgate, Oklahoma, later from Dallas, Texas. He is best known for recording a white rhythm and blues version, in 1962, of Robert & Johnny's 1958 hit "We Belong Together". Velvit's first release was "Sometimes at Night" on Division Records in 1961, afterwards released on Cub Records (a division of M-G-M). He also recorded under the name 'James Bell', in 1968, when he charted "He Ain't Country", a Country.
Jimmy Tennant, better known as Jimmy Velvet, was an early American soft rock and roll vocalist, during the 1960s. His most popular singles were "We Belong Together" and "It's Almost Tomorrow". Tennant was born in Jacksonville, Florida, where he became involved in music entertainment. It was there he met Elvis Presley and they became lifelong close friends. After Elvis' death, Tennant operated an Elvis memorabilia museum in Memphis for about twenty years.
He's the "Original" Jimmy Velvit because in the early years there was an associate who stole his songs, his arrangments, even his name, sometimes altering the spelling, and carried on an inferior "clone" career for a while. Born in Coalgate, Oklahoma, Jimmy moved to Dallas, Texas in 1952 with his family. While working at a Worth Food Mart in 1958 he began singing at parties with some musicians who also worked there. After receiving good responses from the crowds, he began to think about a singing career
