Dear Colm,

I realise that you probably don't read your emails very much, so I do hope that you see this message. My name is Jessica, I am 19 years old and live in New Zealand.

I am emailing because you are the most inspirational figure in my life, and your music has been a huge part of my musical education. I just want to say thank you for the emotion and love you convey through your songs; there are very few people that can speak directly to the heart of an audience, and you do this every time I hear you sing.

You must hear this from a lot of people, but please do believe me when I say that your voice is the best I have ever heard, and I cannot imagine anyone living up to the precedent you have set in the world of musicals and composition.

It is a bit surreal to even be emailing you, and to be honest, i don't really expect a reply, but it would be the most amazing thing if I were to hear from you.

I was wondering if you would ever consider coming to New Zealand? I know there are so many people who would just love to hear you sing live, and not in the youtube videos we depend on for splices of your amazing gift. I wish most of all to meet you, and I pray that this will someday be a reality.

Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera are my favorite musicals, Les Mis especially because Valjean is a role created for the stage by you; you are Valjean to me, and no one can measure up to the incredibly emotional and moving performance you give every time.

When I heard that you retired from Les Mis I felt so sad as it is the end of an era but after so many years of captivating performances and loyalty to the show it is fair that you have a well deserved break, though it is nevertheless a huge loss to the stage and I am sad that I will never get to see you live as Valjean.

Perhaps you would consider a compilation performance of your favorite songs here in New Zealand?

I would love to hear your own songs most of all, especially 'I Cannot Stay.'

As I said, I hope you read this and possibly even reply.

Thank you for your commitment and incredible contributions to the theatre. You are an inspiration and the grandfather I always wanted but never got.

I admire you so much, and wish you all the best for the future.

I have to say that I have been a HUGE fan of yours since I was a small girl. My mom and I watched a public broadcasting of Les Miserables 10th anniversary edition. I loved it so much that my mom bought the VHS. I was recently able to see Les Miserables live for the first time ever and it just wasn't the same without you to play Valjean. It's not that the other gentlemen haven't been talented it's that you're my first Valjean and in my opinion you're the best. I have also seen the 25th anniversary edition of Phantom and LOVED when all of the Phantoms came out to sing together.

I am BEGGING you to make your way to the midwest and do a show in Kansas City. (I'd also beg to sing with you but I'm sure that's presumptuous- I'm not nearly as good as you are)

Hello. I hope this doesn't seem intrusive, but I wanted to tell you how big a fan I am of yours. I mean, you've been in all my favorite musicals. My name is Emily Buxengaard, and I am twelve years old. I started listening to you when I saw you singing as Valjean in the 10th anniversary edition of Les Miserables. I didn't actually get to see it live, but I have the DVD from when my parents went and I love your rendition of it. I love how you changed the role and shaped it to be what all the future Valjeans base their acting after. And the fact that you were also The Phantom in Phantom of the Opera gave me more respect for you. Phantom of the Opera was my first show in London- and the one that got me hooked on musicals. And then, in addition, you were Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar and Che for the Evita concept album! I also wanted to tell you how your music has helped me. I recently underwent a major spinal surgery, and have been in a lot of pain, but I just turn on one of your songs and it helps me. So, thank you.

We were fortunate to see you in concert in Cardiff last week - our first visit to South Wales. We travelled from the Isle of Harris to see you and it was well worth it!
I first saw you in Les Mis when I was about 20 and after seeing the production several times over, I still feel your voice was the best.
Many thanks for a great night out!

It broke my heart to miss your concert in Edinburgh. I had tickets but tragically lost a relative the week before, and had to go to London instead. I'm sure the concert was phenomenal and I sincerely hope you are up in Scotland again soon so I can hear your mesmerising voice live.

Thank you so much for the great concert tonight at the Bord Gais.
It was all I dreamed of and more!
I wanted to wait for you at the stage door but the guard told me you are meeting friends and family backstage, so it didn't feel right to "loiter".
I hope to see you live on stage again soon and then I will wait afterwards in hope to meet you in person for an authograph and a photo.
Thank you so much again!
Love from the blue haired girl in the front row.
