That's What Friends Are For is an album by American singers Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams that was released in July 1978 by Columbia Records. The project was a continuation of the pairing of the artists that began on his previous LP, You Light Up My Life, which included "Too Much, Too Little, Too Late", the duet that was on its way to number one on three different charts in Billboard magazine as the recording sessions for this album got underway.

Album · 1977 · 14 Songs. 2. Until You Come Back to Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do). 3:40. 3. You're a Special Part of My Life. 8. That's What Friends Are For. 3:28. 9. I Just Can't Get Over You. 4:12. 10. Touching Me With Love.

Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams made a fine team on this collection of sentimental love songs and light pop ballads. They had had previous success on the title track, which had been included on her first release, so they opted for a full session. They had a moderate hit with a cover of "You're All I Need To Get By," and they also reworked Stevie Wonder's "Until You Come Back To Me (That's What I'm Going To Do. It peaked at Number 19 on the pop chart, and actually proved Williams' most consistent album from a sales standpoint.

The success was so great for Mathis & Williams that later in 1978 the duo released a follow-up single, "You're All I Need to Get By" (which peaked at number 47 on the Hot 100), and a full album of duets, "That's What Friends Are For". The success of the duets with Williams prompted Mathis to record duets with a variety of partners including Jane Olivor, Dionne Warwick, Natalie Cole, Gladys Knight, and Nana Mouskouri. A compilation album, also called Too Much, Too Little, Too Late and released by Sony Music in 1995, featured the title track among other songs.
