Comments: Eddie, `Hey There Lonely Girl` was `our song` for my high school sweetheart Patty and myself since we first heard it in 1970. I bought the 45rpm and then the LP which I still have! In October 2011 we will be celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary and I'm sure we will have a special dance to Hey There Lonely Girl once again! Thanks for the memories. We hope to see you perform in person some day. It's incredible how you can sound even better today!! You're truly a remarkable and gifted entertainer, and I'm sure there are still millions of Eddie Holman fans around the world. At least 2 here in London Canada!! God Bless you and your family always.

I also wanted to thank you for singing `Hey There Lonely Girl`. `Hey There Lonely Girl` was my mom's favorite childhood song. It is also one of my favorite songs.

Comments: All I wish to express to you Eddie Holman is that I love you!!! I was 15 years old and attending Andrew Jackson High School in Queens N.Y. when `This Can't Be True` was released...It blew everyone completely away. I became a devoted fan of yours from that time on and I own every song you ever recorded. I will not say you're the greatest vocalist I have ever heard in my life because you already must know this. Modesty notwithstanding. I will say when I listen to your music it takes me back to a simpler time. A time of youth and of strength and of beauty which as a young person I took for granted and why not? Youth was our right and we had the privilege to enjoy its exquisite delights. It is a blessing from God to have such talent and it is also a blessing to be able to enjoy amazing music and voice. I agree with you when you say that whatever gifts we possess should be used to glorify our Creator who gives good gifts to us all! I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses and after reading your biography I see you are a spiritual man as well. May God continue to bless you. Wishing you and your family the best regards Mr. Holman! Respectfully yours, Mrs. Charla Troyano (Earley when I first `met` you lol)

You have such a beautiful voice and you have stood the test of time with grace. Mr. Holman, you have preserved well the gift the Holy Father has given you. Thank you you much for sharing it and my God bless you always.

Now we have been together 40 years, have 2 children and a grandson, and hearing your voice sing those words brings it all back, so clear. Thankyou Eddie.

We especially want to thank you for giving credit where it is due: you publicly acknowledged that you said a pray every time before you perform that the Lord would allow you to use the gift He gave you to give Him glory. Thank you so much for your testimony, especially in an age when it's not considered cool to thank God for His blessings. You are a true artist and witness. thanks again for a wonderful evening, and may God bless you richly! Blessings, Ron and Lorraine

But I later discovered a host of other wonderful ballads by you that I love too, that shouldn't go unrecognized. `You Make My Life Complete`, `It's Over`, and my all-time vocal, `This Can't Be True`, just to name a few. Your vocal range on that song is SICK! The props you deserve are long overdue. I'm glad to see you are still out there doing it and doing it well. God bless you!

Comments: The usher said that the Emotions wouldn't be appearing March 14 in Cincinnati and we naturally asked who would be in their place. When he said Eddie Holman we went nuts! It has always been a dream to see you in person. We have everything you've ever released and the depth of your talent, besides your incredible voice, is not as well known as it should be. Writing, producing, arranging, you've done it all. The whole package and on top of that the sweetest most soaring falsetto in the business. Your performance certainly lived up to our expectations but we only wished that we could have had a full couple of hours of Eddie Holman. Guess we'll have to be satisfied with that until the next time. Thanks so much for coming to Cincinnati. God bless.

Comments: Hi Mr Holman. I saw you perform in Cincinnati on March 14, 2008 and I loved hearing you sing! You have a truly remarkable voice. I must admit, I didn't know who you were when the usher told us that you would be replacing the Emotions, but when I heard you sing, I knew exactly who you were! See, I was born in 1971, but I grew up hearing my mother play you records. `Hey there lonely girl` is still one of my favorite songs to this day. They don't make good music like that anymore, that's why I keep my `oldies but goodies` CD's in my car. Well, you look great and you sound great! Keep doing your thing and I look forward to seeing you perform again one day!

Comments: This was my first time seeing you in person at the Super Valenties Luv Slow Jam in San Jose Cali at the H.P.Pavilion. I seen many old sckool performers every year at the concert in San Jose, But last night you put on a very nice show for the short time you had. The popular song Hey There Lonely Girl sound like the song was made today, it still sound good and better now with your high pitch voice and telling the audience last night you have to tighten your slendix underwear to get that high pitch voice and didn't have to scream into the mike. That was the best male single performer to put on a great show last night. I have to rate you more higher than Billy Paul singing Me and Mrs Jones when he perform that song a couple year ago when he came. I wish they ask you to come back next year to end the concert instead putting you way at the begining of the show. Please comeback, San Jose and the Bayareas want to show you all the luv for you..........

Comments: I met Eddie Holman at Ontario Airport yesterday. What a charming person!! When I recognized his name on his passenger ticket, I asked if he was the same Eddie Holman as the singer. His face lit up and he said yes and then he offered his hand and we shook hands. One of his songs is one of my old-time favorites, titled `Hey there lonely girl.` God bless you Eddie. Keep up God's work by volunteering your talent and time to help America's youth realize their talent especially as musicians or singers. Nelson

When you ripped through Hey There Lonely Girl, still hitting every note like it was 1970 I had to jump out of my seat and yell, YES! I was clapping and smiling. You are blessed with such a beautiful voice and you continue to make so many people happy when ever you open your mouth. Over the years I've managed to track down your original 45's and albums. I was so happy to see the Cameo Parkway box set release. I bought it mainly for your songs. I hope they release a single cd of your hits and album tracks. Regards. Clarence Williams

I saw you for the first time at the Touch of Class in Newark and, more recently, at the Big Show at Newark's Symphony Hall in 2002. I wish you were around more often. As someone else has noted, it would be great if you were able to put out a live album with a full set (or better yet, a DVD!). Then we could hear you do such great songs as `This Can't Be True (those are some changes!),` `Don't Stop Now,` and `Am I a Loser` - all written by you, if I'm not mistaken. I would be first in line (particularly if those tunes were on it).
Anyway, I had to put my two cents in. May God continue to bless you with good health and spirit. It's just so good to see veteran artists such as yourself not only still doin' it, but still doin' it well.

I first got into your music as an older-kid in the early 70's. The sheer distinctiveness and power of emotion of `LONELY GIRL` was a trigger for my DJ'ing that has continued to this day.
WOW does that tune bring back memories--Not half- I even remember getting chucked to it!!
I often get requests and play your music regularly. If only I had a copy of ` I LOVE YOU` on CD I could do a whole lot more.
Can anybody out there help me get one please??
Please put these things on your list of `THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE`
(1) Do a new album with new material so future generations will have something fresh to chew the fat on long after guys like me have dropped off the perch
(2) Do a LIVE album for guys like me who have never caught your act for whatever reason ( mine is cos of a heavy workload)
(3) Come back to the UK soon and boost the Northern Soul scene
All the best Eddie Keep pumpin out the Soul and keep the faith.

If it wasn't for your comforting, caring and "let's put life into perspective that we survived" performance that fateful evening we would have been even more profoundly mired in the trauma of the horrendous event... We are still suffering emotionally, physically and psychologically from the violent tilting of the ship...
I have been a Cantor and singer my entire life and have studied for many years with Celine Dion's teacher in NY (Bill Riley)... The moment you started singing was the first moment after the horrendous incident that I began to realize my wife and I had not died after all... Your voice (especially your falsetto) was so "uplifting" for all of us who attended your concert...

If you would have been at the Net Bar, London on Sunday 28.05.06 you would have bene in tears. Why? Well as it was a Bank Holiday in UK I knew the place would be packed. So fast 6t's soul t had to be.I am staggered that my Soul Sounds are going down so well.The place buzzing a I was getting lots of praise and applauded.I thought I wonder how people are gonna take this track which is `oldie` as it known in Uk if recordsare played from the Casino Days. Only one way to find out I thought - So I place the Cameo Parkway white demo on the deck. I noticed the last current record spinning had emptied the dance floor a little as it was slow. I wanted that so the track of your which is fast would launch like a rocket - fingers crossed. So as the slow track fades,I think to my self either this track will be accepted or I will be finished.I had faith in you Eddie.I push the button slide the fader,the record spins the drums roll I notice smile on faces and I thinks `welcome back to London Eddie` in you came..`hey hey hey listen all you girls` the place erupted in to applause and dancing he floor was packed.I will see Mr John Buck of RSG who booked you in 84 on Saturday so I will ask him if he will consider bringing you back to perform for the Northern Soul Scene in the Uk again? This Sunday I will spin one of your other once adored tracks that I have not heard played for many years..` I Surrender` and see how that goes down with Soulie's. I will let you know. I hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed the 2minutes 48 seconds with crowd dancing and clapping along to Eddie's My Name? Soulie007.

Comments: Mr. Holman, I adore your music. You are an inspiration to decent and honest people everywhere, and I find your song, `This Can't be True, Girl`, to be one of the greatest, that's right, greatest songs of all time in any genre. Thank you for everything. I look forward to seeing you in the city tonight!

It would have been a supperior show had Mr Holman been allowed to sing more then two songs. However he made my night when I met him at the autograph table and finally had the chance to talk with the man I have admired since
