  3. HELLO ANGEL OF MUSIC AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
    I MET A FRIEND OF MINE A FEW DAYS AGO AND ASKED HER IF SHE HAD SEEN IN THE MOVIE THE NEW FILM OF JAMES BOND TELLING HER HOW MUCH I WANTED TO SEE YOU PLAYING THIS ROLE. SHE TOLD ME THAT FOR HER YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE PHANTOM. BELIEVE ME, I UNDERSTOOD VERY WELL WHAT SHE WANTED TO SAY. THIS WEEKEND I SEARCHED ON YOU TUBE MY FAVOURITE SONG EVER “THE MUSIC OF THE NIGHT” PERFORMED BY SUSAN BOYLE AND MICHAEL CRAWFORD. O.K. I HEARD IT A COUPLE OF TIMES AND ENDED UP WITH THE SAME CONCLUSION AS USUAL: NO BODY WILL EVER BE ABLE TO SING THIS SONG THE WAY YOU DID…..AND BY THE WAY I DO NOT LIKE HEARING IT IN DUET OR WITH A FEMALE VOICE.
    ENJOY YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY “PHANTOM”. I WISH YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS. “TILL WE HEAR YOU SING ONCE MORE……”

  4. HELLO GERRY. AFTER 7 YEARS OF SEARCHING, I FINALLY FOUND TODAY ON DVD A THEATRICAL VERSION OF THE “PHANTOM OF THE OPERA”, AND SPECIFICALLY THE ONE THAT TOOK PLACE LAST OCTOBER IN ROYAL ALBERT HALL CELEBRATING THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SHOW. I ALWAYS WANTED TO SEE THE PHANTOM ON STAGE TO COMPARE IT WITH THE MOVIE VERSION AND NOW THAT I DID IT THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TO SAY. IT WAS SPECTACULAR, BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THAT STAGE PLAYING THE PHANTOM AND NOT MR. KARIMLOO. HE HAS A NICE VOICE BUT HE DID NOT GIVE ME THE IMPRESSION THAT HE COULD ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND THE PHANTOM’S FEELINGS. I WILL REPEAT AGAIN THAT YOU ARE THE BEST PHANTOM EVER AND I WILL ASK YOU ONCE MORE TO CONSIDER SERIOUSLY TO PLAY THE PHANTOM IN THE SEQUEL. ANOTHER FAN SUGGESTED THAT THE PHANTOM MUST BE RELEASED AGAIN IN THE MOVIE. I WILL AGREE WITH THIS PERSON AND I WILL EXPLAIN TO YOU WHY. EVEN THOUGH I HAD SEEN TWO MOVIES OF YOURS BEFORE THE PHANTOM (LARA CROFT AND ATTILA) I DID NOT PAY ANY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO YOU. THAT CHANGE IN THE BEGGINING OF JANUARY 2005. NOW THAT YOU HAVE MILLIONS OF FUNS ALL OVER THE WORLD, I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT ALL THESE FUNS MUST HAVE THE CHANCE TO GO TO THE CINEMA AND SEE THIS FANTASTIC FILM ONE MORE TIME AND OF COURSE ADMIRE YOUR WONDERFUL AND SENSITIVE ACTING. PLEASE MAKE US HAPPY ANGEL OF MUSIC. WE WILL BE WAITING ANXIOUSLY……

    HELLO ANGEL OF MUSIC. I WILL AGREE WITH ANA, A FUN THAT IN APRIL 10NTH 2012 ASKED YOU TO PLAY THE PHANTOM IN “LOVE NEVER DIES”, IF OF COURSE THEY TURN IT TO A MOVIE. I WILL AGREE WITH HER AND I WILL ASK YOU TOO ONCE MORE TO CONSIDER IT VERY SERIOUSLY. YOU ARE THE BEST PHANTOM EVER AND ONLY YOU CAN REALLY UNDERSTAND PHANTOM’S FEELINGS AND ACT ACCORDINGLY. THERE ARE TIMES THAT I CLOSE MY EYES AND IMAGINE YOU SINGING “TILL I HEAR YOU SING ONCE MORE”. YOU WILL MAKE THIS SONG TAKE WINGS AND OF COURSE ALL THE OTHER SONGS TOO. SO PLEASE GERRY, WEAR THE PHANTOM’S MASK AND MAKE ALL YOUR FUNS HAPPY WITH ANOTHER WONDERFUL AND SENSITIVE RENDITION……
