Roy Hamilton was a magnificent singer. He deserves to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Deserving. Hero to Elvis and Jerry Lee. Excellent chops. Superb artist. Color, Tone. Feeling.
The whole bouquet. The full orchestra. Employs trained sound selectively. A poet. A painter.
A true vocal artist.Intelligence. ***** Great singer.
I’m 78. I listen every day on spotify
I keeps me going in the nursing home
He is my number one artist now and in past.
Roy Hamilton was in a class of his own. and no other singer will ever fill his shoes. I thank the good lord for giving us Roy. His music will forever be cherished and remembered.
ROY HAMILTON AND JOHNNY MATHIS ARE MY TWO ALL-TIME GREATEST MALE SINGERS!!!! I BOUGHT ROY’S ALBUM WITH “YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE,” “EBB TIDE,” “HURT” AND MORE IN THE EARLY 60s. IT WAS STOLEN FROM ME. I KNEW THE S.O.B. KLEPTOMANIAC WHO STOLE IT AND MY “THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES” BY SARAH VAUGHN, BUT I COULDN’T PROVE IT.
MY ALL-TIME GREATEST FEMALE SINGERS ARE: SARAH “SASSY” VAUGHN, DINAH WASHINGTON, GLADYS KNIGHT, MARIAH “MIMI” CAREY, DIONNE WARWICK.

The first time I heard “”Don’t Let Go” it knocked me out! He “out-Elvised” Presley himself with that tune. Roy still not given his due!
Anyone who inspired the King of Rock’n Roll the way Roy did, deserves to be in the RnR H.O.F..
This is one amazing vocalist of all time, for Mr. Hamilton Sr. Who’s has truly left an amazing legacy with us for all the world to enjoy.. Mr. Hamilton Sr. smooth silky soulful voice is so deserving of this honor..

My mother introduced to the fabulous music of Roy Hamilton and I have been a fan of his music from the first time I heard him. H e has a unique quality in his voice – strength and phrasing unmatched by any other singer! Sad he died so young and maybe to day with proper care and medication he would have had a longer life.
