Romey Love Thread

    Romey Love Thread

    Since Jerome's birthday is coming up very soon, (4/25) I was anxiously awaiting someone to start a discussion thread to spread that wonderful Chaser love Jerome's way, but since none were started yet I thought I'd give it a try (This is my first thread and I hope I'm not stepping on any one's toes!)

    Where does one start when it comes to Jerome?!!!  He is so unique!  So, some Chasers, @DaisyKary's thread, described Jerome in one word:  Handful, Multifaceted, Incredible,World-class, Breath-takinglyamazingwonderfultalentedman, Confident, Sweet, Irresistible, 'Family' and Entertaining!

    Since I couldn't come up with one word I used two (their initials), and for Jerome I described him as "Just Crazy-good"!  He is so talented and uninhibited, and the man can MOVE!!!  He is a true performer, showman and entertainer in every sense of those words.   What I appreciate so much is that he is not afraid to look, or be, silly to get us laughing!  I also love when he shows that softer side of his vocal talents. 

    I think Jerome described himself the best when he said he is:"Passionate"!!  So true, and you can see it in every single note he sings!  I love his passion for what he does.  It is contagious and just makes us all the more passionate about SNC and him!

    As with each of the guys, SNC would not be the same without Jerome, so lets share some Chaser love with our one and only "ROME".  And might I suggest we hold nothing back (in the same spirit that he does on stage for all of us!)....

Rome has a KILLER smile! Seriously, he could ask someone to jump off a cliff and they'll do it because of that smile.

@DaisyKary - :-) !

@Vixter - I like his versions better than any of the originals!

Speaking of the strut, I think Jerome does Beyonce better than Beyonce does!

Romey is my homey!!!! :)

GML - Haha, yes, blame Carla. It's THE thing to do. ^_^

If I could only say one thing about Jerome it would be that you can tell he LOVES what he is doing. It just comes out in every word he sings. He (along with the rest of the group) are so grateful for their fans, and it shows. I don't know how they preserve their voices but I'm so glad they do.

Just a note to all you Jerome fans; his FanChat interview is now out! Check it out and tell us what you think! :)

@Christina S. - Virtual Medics : Not a bad idea! You know you don't have to just sit back. You can jump on it with the insanity anytime. I mean look whose thread we're on (Just Crazy-Good ) Jerome Collins. The man in so insanely talented!! (I know what you mean though). Sometimes I just have to let it out. I promise I'll get it back together soon though. or at least I'll try . I can't promise. Especially if I'm still watching videos. You know I blame Carla for this.!

Christina S.'s picture

I really do just enjoy sitting back and watching/reading all the insanity that ensues on these threads. We may need some virtual medics around with all the love running wild....

@Vixter: LOL because that is exactly what happened to me! (I guess just thinking of what all Rome does and how he does it just exhausts me!!)

@DaisyKary: It seems there is enough of Romeo to share! Actually, there is too much because sometimes He is TOO MUCH!! (but just the right kind of too much!) I'm glad you shared about the m&g because at the one I went to he didn't talk with me at all and with everyone 's shares, I was just starting to think it was me! Of course, it may well have been just me!!

@KristinC: Thanks for the heads-up about the SNC FanChat interview coming up with Rome. Can't wait!

When thinking of Rome, I am remembering watching a behind the scenes video of Who Spiked the Eggnog and Rome was commenting negatively that they didn't have to say he was alone. All I could remember thinking was: "Hey Rome, don't be upset, because that will just make you all the more desirable to all of those single ladies"!

Speaking of single ladies...don't you just love that faux feminine strut Rome does in that and other songs? I suspect he has inspired the other guys (as it gets a lot of audience laughter) as I think I noticed an improvement with their "struts". Has anyone else noticed this? I know Ryan gives him a run for his money, but Walt was up there cracking me up too on Heard it Through the Grapevine!!

O.K. - its past my support group time! Actually, I'm becoming increasingly convinced that I need 10 support groups, with all of these love threads! 11 if you count the SNC one and then 12 for the Chaserville one!! But for now, I'll just go to my Rome OCD support group. But wait, aren't I already there - i mean here? HELP!!!

KristinC's picture

I cannot wait to hear his SNC FanChat interview that's coming out very soon!!!! I'm dying to learn more about him!

DaisyKary's picture

Rome is my favorite, but don't tell the other guys. Shhhhhhh......

@GML He is my Romeo. *sigh* Rome sometimes has to whisper or not talk at all at the m&g after the shows because he just uses all he has during the concert. He gives 200%!!!!!!!!!

Vixter's picture

Anyone know if GML is still around? She isn't lying somewhere passed out, is she/

GML's picture

I've been watching about12 different poison videos the past day or so, and I just love when Rome does that split, or half split, or whatever the correct term is?!! That and the dancing and the singing is not that easy to do!! Can we nickname him Romeo? I mean really, all these guys know what women like, lets face it (I suspect it was their minor in college) but when the guys sing that one song to a lady from the audience, and Rome puts their hand on his chest and really starts gyrating - come on!!! If that were me, not only would I die inside, but I'm so shy, I'd cry!!! He is too much!!! SOOO Funny!! I'd like to know what he does to keep that high energy up? After a concert, he must just be exhausted!!

Seriously, before starting this thread, I loved Rome, but now, I think I'm falling in - love with him!

Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Are you reading your thread? Do you feel the love?

S. Brandon's picture

Nothing to correct, Jessica - you said you didn't know who it was. That's probably one of the few things I recall. Everyone else has concerts and videos memorized. ;-)

Jessica_15's picture

S- I was gonna say Ryan! But I didn't wanna be wrong and feel stupid. Thanks for correcting me! :)

I was at the Smithsonian the other day and saw Michael Jackson's hat.

Yours is better.

With Kary - H. O. T.!!!!!

Jessica, Ryan sings that "hush, my Carlton" line. He doesn't do it all the time, which is too bad, but maybe they get tired of it. ;-)

Jerome - the man was born to be on stage. They're all great, but there's something about his presence, the feeling he brings to every song, that I always look forward to. He's the complete package: personality, looks, voice & moves. And that great smile!

Speaking of Jerome...this just came on my iTunes. It made me smile. :) http://bit.ly/8YfnJa

Rome is HOT!!!!!

Jessica_15's picture

One of my best memories of Rome was my first-ever SNC concert in December 2009. At one point in the show, Jerome made a comment about how everyone said he looked like Carlton from Fresh Prince. Then, when they sang The Lion Sleeps Tonight, a solo part came up, and out came the words (I forget who was singing, I'm horrible aren't I?) "Hush, my Carlton. Don't fear, my Carlton. The lion sleeps tonight..." At that point, Jerome stood there trying so hard to contain his laughter, while the rest of the group broke out in hysteria. He is such a sweet guy and I think you hit the nail on the head when you said that he is described as "passionate." LOVE YOU ROME!! (Happy almost birthday!)

i admit, the first time i heard them do "In the Still of the Night" off mike (in Reading, PA) i cried. It wasn't the song itself, it was the beauty of all of their voices but Rome's especially. The music just surrounded me and i thought, "OH NO i am gonna cry and i am in the front row." But so many songs he just nails them...both with phrasing and dynamics as well as soul and passion.

One of my favorites:

He may not know what day is is but we still love him!!!! (Maybe he needs instruction from Rebecca Black.)

DaisyKary's picture

Aw man, it cut off part of my long word. The rest was WillYouMarryMeOhMyGodILoveYouOhMyGodI'mGonnaThrowUpOhMyGod!!

@GML I know, I'm so shy and quiet. I'll try to open up more.
@Marianne Oh yes..... "umphhh" is a great way to describe Rome! He is so passionate about his music.

I remember the day they signed the contract and how excited they were---been a few changes in pesonnel, but still as amazing today as they were three years ago! Thanks to all the SNC for an amazing three years and the joy you have brought to so many people--especially all the people in Chaserland! It doesn't seem possible it has been that long, but you have been awesome all the way! Each person in the group back then and now are so talented and give audiences all over, now the world as well! I agree with Djinnyeh--Rome is priceless in this clip! But they all were that day as they signed that contract!

DottieK's picture

Angie!! I didn't know we were on to posting videos already! So Hard To Say Goodbye is one of my *absolute favorites*!! So emotional, and Rome's voice has only gotten better over the past 15 years! *tear*

Djinnyeh's picture

my favorite Rome moment so far is actually in the video where they signed the deal - he looks like a kid that's been handed the keys to the candy store!

Jerome's bit is ~2:07

Terry_4's picture

Jerome!!!! Where to begin. It is so hard to be on the end of such an awesome thread. Everyone else has already put into words all the feelings I have. His voice (magnificent), his moves (arousing), his sense of humor (mischievous), his kindness (spectacular).

It is such a rare moment to get one so amazing man in a group, but we are lucky to have 10.

Angie, I just love those video's you posted. I tend to tear up quite a bit when Jerome sings. I always seem to go back to this song that I absolutely love. Enjoy! We love you Jerome!

I'm glad you posted this Love thread. I was getting ready to do it myself, but you beat me to it. I just mentioned that he is my favorite. Soooo much "umphhh", passion, and soul behind his voice. :) Love him. Too bad he doesn't get on here enough to see all of the love he is getting.

AngieTheCanuck's picture

One of my favorite Jerome solos...the vocal gymnastics combined with the comedy is just #WIN!
