When Colm Wilkinson sings a cover, you totally forget you have ever heard the original.

When Colm Wilkinson sings a song synonymous with Colm Wilkinson, you forget that the world exists and you reside in the world he creates for you.

From Show Tunes to Pop, Country to Blues, written For to Written By, he took the mob along on a revolution of endearment and wonder.

I have never heard the song Danny Boy before. I've heard it. But I have never actually heard the sentiment and the beauty of this oft-abused masterpiece until tonight. I wept. I was in the grave and could see my loved one above me.

She's Leaving Home had a note in the chorus that made me tilt my head, scratch it as if I was trying to decipher some strange code and when I could find no meaning for its existence, I wept.

A self-penned song called I Cannot Stay held such a meaning for me and the beautiful woman to the left of me that when she gently stroked my arm at the precise moment in the song that I reached for hers, I wept.

Assisted by a pristine collection of musicians, including an idol of mine from my youth, Jimmy Smyth, this night could not have been more perfect. There was even a 15 minute interval to suck a smoke or two in and to grab a strawberry Cornetto.

One of the best nights of my life.

I am SO excited, I have not seen Colm Wilkinson live since my visit to Toronto for the Phantom back in the early 1990's and I see he is coming to Sarnia Ontario which is so close to Detroit! Can't wait for November!! Best voice I have EVER heard!

Desde España, gracias Colm por haberme devuelto la energía tantas veces...

Soy un ingeniero civil que trabajó durante 2012 en Afganistán en tareas de cooperación y reconstrucción para el Gobierno español. No sabes cuantas veces me acompañaste, y no sabes cuantas veces me ayudaste a seguir adelante. Gracias por esa fuerza, gracias por ese talento.

I´ll try to translate it.

From Spain, thanks Colm because your voice gives me back the energy so many times…

I’m a civilian engineer who during 2012 worked in Afghanistan around cooperation and reconstruction works for the Spanish Government. It was an terrible environment. It still exists. Savage war and extreme poverty. You can’t imagine how many times you came with me, and you don’t know how many times you helped me for going on. Thanks for your force, thanks for your talent.

When I was six years old, I was obsessed with the musical Les Miserables. My wonderful mother took me out of school to see the original cast staging a production in San Francisco. I had never heard of you beyond the voice of Jean Valjean, but you came out after the show and sang "the wind is called Mariah" for an encore. That was the first time I had ever heard that song, and I have never forgotten it. That was roughly 25 years ago and I still remember exactly what song you sang. It is a pivotal memory of my childhood. Thank you!! I freaked out seeing you in the movie; I recognized your voice at an instant. I'm so glad and happy for you.
