This wonderful man Jacob Walsh is not only a very gifted singer but a perfect gentleman who I saw touch the hearts of my wonderful residents who live in retirement living in York. From start to finish Jacob was ever the professional who took time to speak to the audience and engage them with his performance. I saw Jacob take each one on a journey which saw them smile, sing, laugh and cry as the songs he sang so beautifully brought back many memories.

My residents tonight have all said how moved they were by his talent and warmth and will be sleeping tonight with smiles on their faces and a heart full of memories that they had forgotten.

This Jacob Walsh is a skill that can not be brought but it is something that is gifted.

So from all of us at Field Court we would like to thank you for being you and letting us hear your beautiful voice.

I picked up a copy of your debut album for my parents. It was their 53rd Wedding Anniversary and they love listening to classical music, Tenor's especially. I'm not into classical. I prefer heavy metal. I've heard Jacob sing in the restaurant and thought actually how beautiful it sounded. I decided to listen to your CD and it's amazing you have most wonderful voice and you sing with emotion. I listened to the full CD twice! Congratulations on a first album. This is highly recommended . . . . . . . My mum has just rung me up in tears . That man she said is adorable , his voice is amazing. Your dad thinks he is brilliant. That voice she said, is one of the best she has ever heard. So thank you. You simply are so talented.

Jacob Walsh is a truly wonderful man, when a choir let us down 5 days before my beloved nana’s funeral I put a call for help out amongst the York community and a few people recommended Jacob.
Jacob had heard about my situation and messaged asking if he could help in anyway!! 
Well I truly believe this young gent was sent from heaven by my nana herself! He saved the day and even took over from the family and dealt with the organist and priest on the family’s behalf and even at the last minutes during the rehearsal the evening before when we had made a mistake on the order of service he calmed us all and changed his songs! When Jacob sings the angels must join him as his voice is outstanding! When my nana entered he church to Jacobs voice singing Ava Maria Time stopped and she was with us once again!! 
We really cannot thank him enough ! A beautiful voice and a beautiful human! Please don’t hesitate to use Jacob on any celebration whether it’s in love, life or death you will be very very happy with your decision! We hope to have Jacob Sing at a happier family event next time, but until then I have his CD so can still hear his heavenly voice ! Thank you from the bottom of our Hearts

Jacob has been wowing customers at my restaurant Sapori 74 for over a year now. I have to say it is always a delight to hear him and the customers always comment on how great the evening was with the food, atmosphere and the singing.
I have heard nothing but rave reviews about his singing and people purposely book so they can hear him.
Not only does he sing he always is wanting to help out when we need a pair of hands.
I hope he succeeds as he has a true talent but such a lovely and warm character too.

Jake, you made my night!
When I decided to host a charity ball for Save The Children, I knew you had to sing for us all - and you didn't let me down!
Your laid back approach when organising things was just such a welcome relief. When I felt that the details of the ball were overwhelming, there you were for encouragement and support!
On the night, you were my highlight and I know you were for many others! You charmed us all with your wit and humour and then mesmerised us with your stunning voice!
I cannot thank you enough and I cannot recommend you highly enough!
Thank you so much!
