      I see Paul has gone from phone calls ($300 level) to key chains and photos - when will we hear about concert DVD credits??? the $200 level? just curious.

    2. Creator Dorothy H. Cain on November 15, 2012

      Paul,
      My 15 year-old granddaughter, Darian, and I are so very proud of you. We felt honoured to be a backer for Paul Byrom. Your future looks extremely bright. Hopefully, you will have a concert in our neck of the woods(Tennessee slang). We are not far from East Tennessee State University where your future brother-in-law, Ryan Coulter, is the goalie for their soccer team. ETSU might be a good place to have a concert. Better yet, Knoxville, where we live. We have been to see Ryan play several times. Looking forward to seeing your PBS concert! Hope there will be a DVD. Keep us posted when it will be. We know it will be fabulous! Congratulations to you and Dom! You make a beautiful couple. By the way, you remind me of my Irish dad. He also was a tenor and you actually sound a lot like him. First time I heard you sing, it brought tears to my eyes as you sounded so much like him. Actually, you look a lot like him in pictures I have when he was your age. God Bless. Dorothy Cain & Darian

    13. Creator Janice Wert on October 19, 2012

      I love what you wrote. No one ever gets anywhere alone. You really choked me up. To have a loving family, friends, fans and a gifted team of experts is a blessing but everyone is there for you because of who you are and how you treat others. It does come around full circle. Now, get going as we are all so excited. I need no rewards - just a fantastic PBS show.

    17. Creator Karina on October 19, 2012

      Hello Paul. I was just properly introduced to your music tonight. My god, your voice!! No wonder my friend does not stop talking about your singing!! Best of luck!! :)

    18. Creator Patricia DeLaat on October 19, 2012

      Want so much for your PBS special to succeed. Your music has brought me so much enjoyment and peace at a very low point in my life. Your beautiful voice and sparkling personality is what we all want more of. Best of luck to you to be able to follow your passion.

    19. Creator Dercy on October 14, 2012

      SO CLOSE TO YOUR GOAL!! I have forced my friends to donate! I think they did it to shut me up, but I am getting whomever I get to support you!! I will be rooting for you no matter what. You are a wonderful person and a insanely talented singer! :D

    20. Creator Joanne Tilbury on October 13, 2012

      How about setting up a groupon/wagjag so fans can pay $5 now to receive $5 off your future and no doubt awesome dvd?(coupon gets you $5 off the purchase price of your dvd, if they buy it through your website)

      Best of luck -
      Joanne Tilbury

      Keep Well, God Bless

    23. Creator Gail Sadlier Stanley on October 9, 2012

      Paul, I trust this will come to fruition and we'll be able to enjoy the results of your time, energy, skill and passion in the near future. Just looking at your goal to date --- it would only take 635 people to each pledge $25.00 --- to get to the total of $50,000.00. if we get the word out that is not an impossibility at all. Wish I could do more as a pledge, but will do my part to spread the word and let's get 'er done!

    24. Creator Jenny Keyter on October 3, 2012

      Good luck Paul. You truly do deserve to go all the way I loved you on Celtic Thunder -your lovely voice and the way you always let your sense of humor shine through. You are a star and I loved when you sang "You Raise Me Up" sang so beautifully and with such passion , that song is very special to me as I had it played at my late husband's funeral - (sung by Josh Groban) but your Version is so much better. Hope you come to Australia in the near future and I am glad that through my pledge I can help Thank you. Jenny

    25. Creator Jenny Keyter on October 3, 2012

      Good luck Paul. You truly do deserve to go all the way. Loved your performances in Celtic Thunder and the way you let your sense of humor shine through The way you sang " You Raise Me Up" was beautiful - this s a special song for me as I played it at my late husband's funeral and your version is the best I have heard

    27. Creator Trudy Veitch on October 2, 2012

      Dear Paul... Canadians, including myself, like the courage you show in making this sometimes difficult career work. You have the talent, personality and work ethic to go wherever you wish to go with it. I hope this project comes to fruition. I've done my part, I hope many others will do theirs! If you ever have the opportunity, please come to Ireland in North America (Newfoundland)..!
      Thank you, Trudy

    28. Creator Sheri Joyce on October 1, 2012

      I'm getting an 'invalid email' message when I try to contact Sandy about the possible concert in Vancouver B.C. Anyone out there have any information about this??
      Thanks, Sheri

    29. Creator Sheri Joyce on September 28, 2012

      I hope everyone will spread the word about this and make it happen for this wonderful singer! Good luck, Paul! We're all pulling for you.

    30. Creator Rosie Phillips on September 27, 2012

      Finally made my 1st pledge & feeling good. What will making a pledge and reaching this target mean to us fans? Paul will finally get the exposure he so deserves,then the money will come rolling in making it possible for Paul to book a full tour each year touching every city in the USA, Canada, UK , Australia and beyond. Release new albums on a regular basis (bliss ) following with DVD's, giving the whole world a chance to see this brilliant performer and be part of the magic that many of us have had the pleasure to already have experienced. We must get Paul his total, we owe it to him and mankind ,his beautiful voice should not remain hidden

      Thank you very much in advance. The Barendregt's In Missouri

    33. Creator Kathy Krupinsky on September 23, 2012

      I am so glad that Paul did this he has given alot to his fans i really think this is a good way to go because your supporting someone you believe in and someone who has worked hard for this most of his life lets make his dream come true wouldnt that be a great wedding present to him and dom or a great christmas present

    34. Creator Richard & Sandy Nelson on September 20, 2012

      It is so ironic that my friend in NY and I were talking on the phone within an hour of Paul's Kickstart announcement. Our conversation was how we wished and hoped that Paul could get a PBS special and if he would actually let his fans help him with a donation and how could we approach him. I nearly fell off my chair when the notification came on my phone. As I was squealing with excitement and still on the phone with my friend all way across the country from one another. I was pacing for hubby to walk in the door we were at the computer faster than a blink of an eye and made our contribution. Paul has been so gracious to us fans and truly appreciates us. I think it is time to help him now when he needs it. I believe!!!!

    35. Creator Jean Ostholm on September 20, 2012

      Want nothing more than to get Paul on PBS. Just made my pledge and hope to see many more. Yes, I know how Paul can take you through a range of emotions through his songs and his funny banter on stage. Had the priviledge of seeing Paul twice last year but cannot go up to see him this year : ( so, just have to see him do his PBS show and hopefully get a DVD of it.
      Now, let's get some more pledges, we don't want to give Paul gray hair : ) Love and Hugs Paul.

    36. Creator Carol Hall on September 19, 2012

      I actually feel priviledged to have the opportunity to support this awesome, wonderful, funny, brilliant man. And did I mention he has a God given talent for taking one through a range of emotions through his songs. I am also very proud to say I am a Paul Byrom fan! Let's get him on PBS!!!

    37. Creator Jaylyn Marsland on September 18, 2012

      GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!!!! Let's keep this movement going and totally blow Paul away with all of our support. I'm so proud to call myself a Paul Byrom fan. You all ROCK!!!!
