GOING THE DISTANCE
Drop a note and say hi! Let us know who you are.
I hope, one of my wishes, after COVID, to see Jonathan in concert. I live in Washington state, USA, and WANT to go see Jonathan in person.
His story, from BGT and now, is something to write about. He reminds me of my son, but he went into computers, and ironically, just like Jonathan, he likes heavy metal.
Hi Judie and welcome x
Hi all, I'm María from Querétaro Mexico, I'm following Mr. Antoine since June 2012. When I friend of mine send me the BGT audition, I can't believe my ears, such a beautiful voice.
I'm a computer Engineer, programming is my specialty. Mother of two young ladies. I like to sing, I belong a chorus here in Querétaro, and I love to sew (That's because I'm an old model). I was in the concerts of California and Toronto. Happy to have had the opportunity to hold the hand of the Maestro Jonathan Antoine.

Hi Volia-Louise, it is so lovely to have you join us & so pleased you have found Jonathan! I hope you continue to find comfort, strength & joy in music; Jonathan inspires us all in many ways! There are some others from SA who post on Jonathan's FB page & I hope he does visit there in future <3
Hi Volia-Louise, Welcome. What a sad but beautiful post . I am delighted you have discovered Jonathan and you find him such an inspiration. I wish you well with your vocalist. ❤️
Oh WOW! I am totally in awe!
Jonothan(if I may call you on your name)) ; I only found your journey on YouTube about 2 weeks ago!
I am in my 50s. Live in South Africa. Music is my passion;singing is the breath to my soul.
I did a few instruments and dancing through my life. But singing is me.
But I did get very ill...still not fit and healthy.
I started to go to a vocalist to help me get my voice "instruments" back. But it is really diffycult. I had bad injuries to inside my face,especially my jaws and jawjoint. You will understand what that means for a singer.
I got myself to listen to music on the one side of my head. It worked and the music is just taking me again! Now to go back to the vocalist and really do this!
I need to thank you! You became such an inspiration to me! When I listen to you .....I feel the music,I live it ; and I sing it! I get goosebumps and tears and victorius moments.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I hope that one day I can experience you live in concert. But they will have to close my mouth and tie up my arms;because there is just no way I can sit quietly listening to you!
May you go all the way and be blessed as you are blessing so many people. With your gift as an amazing Tenor ; but also with your wonderful personality !
From South Africa
Hi m1chald and Peggy, I have enjoyed reading your posts, lovely memories for you both.
A beautiful and memorable gift. Lovely photo. Loved reading all these comments ❤️
I received a trip to see Jonathan as a Christmas gift from my husband. The wait was the longest 5 months of my life! I had such a great time meeting the lovely Jan Smith and many other wonderful Fantoines, that my husband surprised me with a trip to see him in Gawsworth for my birthday in August. That was an amazing day! The release of Believe, my birthday, getting to see Jan and the other fans, and Jonathan again made for a day to remember forever! I wish I could go again for the Christmas concert. Maybe if I beg my husband a little harder. LOL I wish Jonathan the best. He is an amazing young man with a warm and loving heart. His voice sings to your soul!
I am Michelle, I have been a fan of Jonathan since his very first appearance on BGT. So happy to have joined this wonderful forum. Hi everyone.
Bit about me... I am a paramedic, I have 3 daughters and 2 grandkids along with numerous animals. My animals include the now infamous JtG, Jonathan the Goat, of course named after the Maestro himself. I have been lucky enough to see Jonathan performing live many times and cant wait for the next time which will be at the Lowther Pavilion in December 2017. Hope to see many of my old friends and meet some new ones, xxx
wonderful photo Bea
Hi marlene_mcadam I wish I had met you at Viva Blackpool, there were a few of us there from Scotland & many are going to Lytham in December. I personally do not want to miss a chance to hear Jonathan live again. I like all genre of music but there is no one to compare with Jonathan, he is the voice of my life time. Great that another Scot will help spread the joy of Jonathan & his wonderful voice.
Welcome Marlene , your beautifully written post resonates my feelings too. Jonathan has touch many people in such a positive way. He is remarkable. Enjoy Lytham, what a fantastic evening it will be.
