When I was 15, my parents went to Toronto to see you perform in Phantom. They brought the soundtrack back for me and my sister and we listened to it nonstop and memorized all the words. To this day I can recite starting with "Lot 666 then, a chandelier in pieces...".

I had to see you in person. When I was 16, my parents gave me a wonderful gift - a trip to Toronto to see Phantom. We lucked out and ended up with front row tickets thanks to the hotel package we booked. I don't think any theater experience in my life will be as special as that night. There is no other Phantom in my mind. You communicated the complexity and depth of the character with your voice, just as you did with Jean Valjean, and no one else will ever quite compare.

And it was so exciting to see you in the Les Miserables movie, outshining the rest of the cast just a bit.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful voice with the world.

Am just home from Colm's performance in The National Concert Hall, Dublin. It
surpassed expectations.
Renditions from favourite musicals to songs by Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash, U2, The Beatles, John Lennon and lots lots more, including his own music make this a fabulous performance. He is very much at home with his audience, and it's great to see him here in Ireland. (missed him 25 odd years ago in Toronto because he was back in Ireland for a week's holiday, have been catching up with him ever since!)

Dear Colm
Thankyou. for all you have given to all of us, since the Nineties I have kept your Les Mis performance in my heart. I recently re watched the 10 anniversary concert was reduced to tears again. Thankyou for bringing so much humanity to a wonderful role.

Saw the show in Toronto on December 19. Have seen Phantom 6 times and you were by far my favorite. I always related you to the Phantom as a larger than life character... but last nights performance showed you in another brilliant light. Long story short, our kids gave my wife and I the tickets as an early Christmas gift ant it was a night to remember
Thank you .. Mr Wilkinson!!!

Dear Mr. Colm Wilkinson
When I was 10 my mother took me to Pantages theatre in Toronto to hear you. I fell in love with the depth and soul of your voice. Tonight, this many years later, I heard you again, but this time I took my mother. The song of your mother touched me as I was raised by my grandmother and mother whose voice I carry with me. My family is from Cork Ireland.. Your next stop. Maybe one day I will get to Ireland. In the mean time may you receive kindness, jolly greetings and joy wherever you go.

Colm,

I regret that I couldn't make it to your performance in Buffalo this season; alas, now that I am retired as a music teacher in Niagara Falls, I am performing on trumpet (my instrument of study at the Eastman School of Music, it seems like a hundred years ago) with a band that works regularly in the Buffalo area, and I had a gig commitment.

I wanted to share this with you:

You know I made many trips with bus groups, many of them students, to enjoy your performances in Phantom and Les Miserables in Toronto. After your recent Buffalo performance, I received posts from around 20 of my former students who went to your concert and were again amazed by your performance! They mentioned seeing you on my trips and how gracious you were when you met them at the stage door.

You had SUCH an impact on these students that made them a future audience for musical theatre for themselves and their children!

Thank you for the impact that you made on so many of them. Have a wonderful Christmas season with good health and happiness!

Regards,
Paul Wos

I wish I could have the opportunity to hear you live, Mr. Wilkinson. You are an inspiration. This may be short, but it's really hard to address a message to someone who I look up to and respect so much. I hope you are doing well, 24601.

Mr. Wilkinson,

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You, above all other voices out there, represent possibilities. At 39 years old, I've spent my entire life with you, following your career on Broadway. My father (deceased) was an old Irish/German tough guy in NYC, and he taught me never to 'feel', but for some reason whenever we saw you in the theatre I could see he had his moments. Likewise, I am the same. Likewise, my children have grown their lives to know your voice. I've explained your voice to others as what I hope Angels to sound like on my deathbed. I've bet myself that if I were ever to have infinite finances, you were to be my wedding singer. In short, your voice is that of the voice that has changed vocals forever. Congrats to you and a magnificent career. You are, simply put, the benchmark all other vocalists are compared against.

If I were to have 1 wish, I would hope you would authorize your earliest work for reproduction. What I wouldn't pay to hear you sing the role of Judas in 'Jesus Christ Superstar'!, Evita? You are the reason it exists to this day.

Thank you for all you've accomplished in your life. Thank you for helping me dream big, and dream proper.

Your Fan,
-Rob
