I am shocked and saddened by the death of George Donaldson. His passing at such a young age is so heartbreaking. In the group, Celtic Thunder, I loved Paul Byrom for his flavor of the classical crossover genre. But, George was my real hero. I loved the strength he showed by his physical appearance and demeanor but also in his voice. When his songs play on my Celtic Thunder albums, they always make me happy. I know the words and sings along. I also have his solo albums. Celtic Thunder lost Damian and they continued on, but the loss of George can never be replaced. He was a very wonderful man and I extend my sympathy to his wife and daughter.
