    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!)....

I dare anyone to watch and listen to this, and not tear up at its beauty.

There are so many fantastic videos of Jerome that we should almost have a separate thread just to post them. And a separate thread to discuss our favorite songs he sings. I wouldn't even know where to begin. I'm just glad he's a member of SNC because he brings so much to the group. I would encourage anyone who doesn't have a copy of the UK version of "With a Twist" to get it just for the song "Only You." Jerome's performance almost brought me to tears the first time I heard it. ?

Thank you for singing so amazingly and beautifully and (seemingly) effortlessly and passionately. And for being so nice and patient and happy and friendly. And you can kinda dance really well.

We really appreciate it.

Love,
Lyssa

P.S. I cried the first time I watched your part on "Bridge Over Troubled Water". It made me love you even more. :)

@Laura, @Dottie, @KristinC: I know what you mean 'cause I couldn't collect my thoughts or gain ,let alone regain any kind of composure and decided if I waited, I'd never get this posted!

I love the personal stories and you are all so eloquent with your comments! I'd didn't post favorite videos 'cause I don't know how to do that!! Feel Free...!

BUT...@DaisyKary - You don't have to be so shy and you really have to quit holding back on us!!! ;-) I can't stop laughing!!!

ROTFLMAO Kary! That's awesome!!! I hope Rome (and all the guys) know how much it totally rocks our world when they give the fans personal attention like that. I have heard so many great things about him especially in that regard. Now if we could only get him to post a little more on Twitter. . .

@Kary...you are hilarious!!! i imagine you were sweet and wonderful and not at all flustered. However, i would have passed out cold on the floor....so i can totally understand!

ROMESKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't put into words how much I ADORE Rome!!! I love a man who can make me laugh!
He is the total package!! Just PERFECT!!

Others have said it so nicely already - entertaining, hysterical, incredible singer, excellent dancer, sweet, kind and caring, Definitely born to be on stage! And his parents are AWESOME too!!!

Story time.......
Once upon a time in Baltimore, some of us Chasers were going to have dinner down the street before the show. Rome got off the tour bus and waved to us across the street as we were walking. We, of course, yelled 'Come with us. We're going to dinner" and he said "I gotta go to work". So at the m&g after the show that night, Rome held my hand in both of his and looked into my eyes and asked "How was dinner?' *melt* I wanted to say "It was so much fun. We went to the little Irish pub down the street.", but I think what came out was " OhMyGodYou'reTouchingMeOhMyGodILoveYouOhMyGodStopLookingAtMeOhMyGodWillyouMarryMeOhMyGodILoveYouRomeOhMyGodI'mGonnaThrowUpNow" Or maybe that was all in my head. Can anybody who was in Baltimore verify if I said that out loud?

Thanks for starting this thread, GML! Wow, what does one say about Jerome Collins? I’d have to start off by saying he is a superstar in the truest sense of the word. His voice, his comedic timing, his moves, his passion plus that sweet face – wow. It will take several posts on here for me to get all my thoughts together on him. I have only seen him live once, and I was blown away by the performance. Unfortunately I was totally clueless when it came to the M&G so I don’t remember if we talked or not. I plan to get more out of my next M&G experience, however!

Jerome was *born* to be on stage! Everything he does is so natural and impressive, it's hard to imagine that he ever had to *learn* to perform! He has one of the most incredible voices imaginable. Filled with passion and unbridled talent. Pitch perfect, and effortless fluctuation! He can make you "feel" the song; it's amazing.
Rome is so friendly! He really makes you feel like he's happy to see you! Never rushes conversation, and when he asks how you are, you never feel like it's small talk, but that he really wants to know! At the last show I went to I was a bit speechless when he touched my arm and asked how I was, like we were old friends and he really wanted to know what was new with me. Made me feel so special. What a guy!
And what can be said of his moves on stage?....here I am blanking because his dancing usually leaves me with my mouth hanging open...No words at all!! Incredible, sexy, *impeccable* dancing!

(I'll be back later to comment some more when I've regained my composer after contemplating Billie Jean/Poison!)

oh my word, where does one start with this guy? The smile? The dance moves? The solos? The m/g? The parents? That baby face?

There are just too many, i am going to have to collect my thoughts and write something later.

He is just amazing.

Jerome has such a stage presence. I love to watch him perform because he puts everything into it. You can see all that he is feeling on his face as he sings. Also he has such a great smile and sense of humor. He never fails to make me laugh.

I have fond memories of meeting Rome - I was getting my picture taken with Mike and Charlie (my profile picture) and Rome was *just* out of the shot, so he practically laid on the table so he could be in the picture too! He is so funny and charismatic, both on stage and in person. His singing can both put a smile on your face and bring tears to your eyes. Love you, Rome!! :)

Yep, that man CAN move! Everything he does shows the care & effort he puts forth in each show so we get one we won't soon forget! Also, it seems as though Jerome is the one that never wants to leave a Meet & Greet! He's always trying to make us laugh (and succeeds every time!). Actually, he never has to try, he just does it. If I only had the guts to be half as confident as he is, I'd be so happy! WE LOVE ROME!!

Ahhhh....a discussion about Jerome, or Sweet Jerome, as I always refer to him. The guy's got great stage presence and is so versatile. A real entertainer, showman. And of course, the obvious...the man has got smooth moves. The little things he does on stage like biting his bottom lip when he's in the moment, or when his head is tilted to the side. Engaging the audience with his humor, or singling out a lucky lady in the crowd motioning her to "call me". His voice demands attention, always on key.

On a personal note, I love that Jerome will chat with me on Facebook while he's on a plane ride to his next concert. I love that every time I see him at meet and greets, he gives me the biggest hug and smile and remembers who I am. I love that he will converse, rather than just give a yes, no answer. He's just an all around lovable guy. What a joy to watch him.

Love you, Sweet Jerome!!
