Dear Colm,

I don't know if you read this yourself, or if you have people for that, or if anyone reads it at all, but I'm going to write as if you actually do read it. You were my first Valjean. I bet you hear this all the time, being on the original London cast recording, but it's true, you were my first Valjean, and by today, after watching it live with Gerónimo Rauch, the concert DVDs and the movie, you are still my favourite, (as well as my favourite Bishop, I must say). You originated the role of Valjean, and you're a part of the cast that introduced me to Les Misérables, and I am thankful for that.

Now don't think I'm forgetting your other roles. While Les Mis is no doubt my favourite musical, I have heard you sing as the Phantom and Che, and of course as yourself, and I think you had, and still have, an amazing voice. It's so calm and soothing, yet so impressively strong and good.

I am just a seventeen year old girl from Norway, but I have come to care very much for you, from a fan's perspective. I hope Canada is kind to you, and that you and your family are doing wonderfully. I'm also very happy for you for your tour. I wish I could see you in Dublin or Belfast so badly, but I'm sure you'll be wonderful without me there. I find the name of the tour, "Bring him home," very beautiful. I bet it's one of the most popular songs you do, and it's also the thing… that the tour is literally bringing you home to Ireland, and that really, genuinely moves me. I definitely would have asked my parents to go if I had someone to go with, but the only friends I have that can understand my passion, either live in America, or are completely broke from too many trips to London this summer. We are growing up, and there is so much we want to see and do. But if I could go to one concert, it would be to yours. I very much hope you come back to hold concerts in Europe some other time, because I will not miss another opportunity. I know you are getting old, and that performing probably gets harder. I have so much respect for you for still being as amazing as you are. But I do hope the chance comes again, no matter how much it is to ask for. And should I find someone to travel with, and some more money, before July 10, I would put Heaven and Earth in movement to go.

But what really matters is that you have a wonderful time in your old country, as well as on your concerts in Canada and the US. I know you'll be amazing, and I'm so glad you get the chance to do this; to combine your two countries in one tour. That must be fantastic.

I have never written fan mail before, and I don’t know if you reply, but if you do, let me know how the tour is going. I want you to know that you inspire me. Stay strong, stay great.

Love, Ingvild Oset, an adoring fan.

Dear Colm, I would like to tell you what an incredible inspiration you are to me as a singer, songwriter and musical theatre star. I'm 33 now and I very first saw you in Les Mis when I was about 6 and I fell in love with the show (and your voice). You have the warmest, richest vocal with soaring beautiful tones. I brought my sister to the Lyceum on Monday (it was her 24th birthday) and she was in awe throughout the show. I can't stay was poetic and beautiful. I've been gigging for 12 years now and you are a complete source of inspiration to me, it's because of you (and Ruthie Henshall) that musical theatre lies deep within my heart & soul. If you have any advice for me as a performer I would be so grateful. If you have any signed photos, I think you may just make my decade!!!! I have an enormous respect for your talent and your humble nature xXx

Colm, you rock!! My friend and I have just returned from seeing you at the Lyceum. What a great evening! We enjoyed every song. An added bonus was that we were sitting in front of Trevor Nunn! Thank you for a great night.

First of all I hope you got my letter :)
I just want to say thank you for a Fantastic concert in Edinburgh last Thursday. It truly was the best time of my life! It is such a wonderful, strange feeling when one of your highest dreams comes true. Now my life feels complete :-)
When you sing is like the whole worlds stops and nothing else matters.
Nothing has had more impact on my life then Les Misérables; the way I think, how I want to be, who I am, everything I do has it's root in Les Misérables.
So I was happy to see that you are just as humble, forgiving, loving, passionate and wise as Jean Valjean, in real life!
Best of luck with the rest of your concerts! It's a shame you're not playing in Sweden, then I would go again and bring my family. But I'm so unbelievable lucky and so immensely happy that I DID get a chance to see you!
I couldn't stop crying I was so moved, so I'm very grateful for your uplifting jokes :-) otherwise I would have been an unstoppable fountain.

Thank you soooooo much for everything!
Best wishes
