Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, performed today at Eldon Square, helping to raise funds for Rotary Club, Newcastle-upon-Tyne West. They are still counting the money! People took a welcome break from their Christmas shopping as they listened to him sing. He sprinkled some seasonal songs amongst some more classical songs - "Isabel", "Nella Fantasia" and a host of Musical Theatre favourites. "Bring Him Home" proved so popular he was asked to sing it four times, during a ninety minute set! Tom would like to thank the many people who donated to a good cause and stopped to wish him well. He would also like to thank the many people who bought his CD "crescendo" and hopes that they enjoy listening.
So many people stopped to offer feedback. One listener commented - "I could hear him singing and I had to rush up, because I thought it must be Joe McElderry! But it's not it's Tom, and he's even better!"
Another came and said how much she loves Alfie Boe, and when she heard "Bring Him Home", she came to check it wasn't him!

Today Tom Wyllie's new CD 'crescendo' was launched. First copy went to his "Number 1 Fan", Emma Djelil.
Tom said "I have been working on 'crescendo' since early summer, and I'm really excited to have it available for people to buy wherever I sing. I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed recording it".
"Emma, her Mum and Dad, and brother Ali, are very good family friends, and have been really supportive and encouraging, and take a great interest in my developing career. They have been on a visit from Les Crouquets, their home and holiday gites in the Dordogne region of France, and I am delighted that they got the first copy!"
Congratulations to Curiously Wicked on opening their shop full of treats today. Tom thoroughly enjoyed
providing an expectant public with some entertainment prior to and just after the big moment at 11am. They seemed to enjoy it too! Thank you too, to all those who pre-ordered Tom's forthcoming CD. Not long to wait now!
Krystyna Dodds of Curiously Wicked said "As a trained musician myself, I was staggered by the purity and quality of Toms' voice when I first heard him sing and was honoured when he agreed to sing at our launch. The range and delivery of his performance is staggering and it's hard to believe that such an accomplished result comes from someone so young. Everyone thought he was marvellous and we had so many positive comments on the day and demands for his CD that orders needed to be taken! Needless to say, we bought two-one for the shop and one for home so that we could listen to him again and again. I firmly believe that Tom is a true star and that it's only a matter of time before he is discovered and given the opportunities he so deserves to bring his voice to the forefront internationally. Tom Wyllie will one day be a household name and we are so privileged to be one of the first to hear him perform. Thank you Tom."
