Dear Gregory, are you all right, my friend? I really hope you are safe and well during this crisis. Just about every state, including mine, is now on lockdown. This is a very serious situation.
In my county alone, there have been 55 deaths, and 1, 055 cases. I live in Youngstown Ohio, and we have been hit hard with this. Very hard.
I know California has been hit harder.
But I pray that you are all right. Happy almost birthday, by the way.
Myself and the family are doing okay so far. Prayers and blessings to all during this tragic time.
I am glad you are safe.
I’m a grandma three times over! My newest granddaughter was born this morning at 9:50am Eastern Daylight time.
She weighed 5lbs, 15oz, and was 18″ long.
Her name is Jour’Nee Nichelle Baineses.
Oh, she is an angel, Gregory.
Other than that, how are you and the family today? Is everyone okay?
Hearty congratulations to you! Always nice to hear good news.
Thank you, Gregory. I am glad that you are my mentor and friend.
Gregory we appreciate your art and your contributions to the music world. Your music will last forever. Whenever I was on a date, I played your tunes and with a glass of wine made the evening enjoyable. Keep singing my brother and stay well.
… and you my brother 🙏🏽
Hi Gregory. I discovered you in the 80’s. I fell in love then and that love is even stronger today.
Your music has been with me through good times,bad times and I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t access your music. Everything you do is beautiful.
Thank you for your perseverance. God bless you and your family always.
Thank you for your kind words…… So happy my music has brought you some measure of peace and joy…… that is my very reason for doing music.
Wow, I used to love your music. Hadn’t heard it in awhile until tonight at a family gathering… someone said to me you used to love his music, I sure did. When I got home I looked up some of your songs on youtube, it’s been nice hearing it again. Much love.
I was not able to listen to your new song (“My Heart……………..”) until tonight. I moved recently and my brother thought he would trade out my computer for a “better” one he had from work. It would not work with websites from the workplace from which I retired. He returned my computer but not my speakers, until tonight. The love of my life and I disagree on our favorite song 😄 “My Heart” is nice, but “Crazy Over You” just gives me the all overs. I have been missing it. I guess having choices is what makes the world go around. I continue to love your work.
I have followed your career ever since you shook me down in 1986. I am really feeling this new single, mainly because my heart is looking for a home. Thank you for sharing your gift…
You are most welcome. Thank YOU.
I found your music videos on UT.
They bring me back to wonderful and very special good old times….
Congratulations for 44 million clicks on UT 🎶💖👍
Thank you for the music 💐
Monika from 😊🇩🇪
Thank you Monika…
You are the greatest
Love your music! I hope you plan to perform here in Philly in the near future.
Just thought you’d want to know that there’s a typo on your home page. The Father’s Day greeting goes out to “fella’s.” I’m sure as a Berkeley grad you know that
the apostrophe shouldn’t be there. 🙂
Thank you for writing in Shelly. I will post in “what’s new” when (and where) I will be performing.
Apparently my staff is not familiar with proper punctuation all the time 😃 I’ll try and have them make the correction.
My name is Anna Z. I live in Dallas, Texas and I have been listening to your music. I love hearing you at night. You play and sing with great intelligence!… 🙆🏻♀️
I bet your wife loves bet of you 🤦🏻♀️
Sorry I should have asked if you are you married or in a relationship first 🤷🏻♀️
You’re a very handsome man anyone would want depends on their character right?
I want to know when you are coming to Dallas to tour and play your music at the American Airlines? Hopefully I can get to meet you one day if God is willing.
You have a blessed one today Gregory Abbott.
I can’t wait until next month to learn the title of your new release. What day is it scheduled to drop? There are 31 days in August. I have no patience. I hope it is the song I suggested you record. Just tell me, I won’t tell anyone else.
A couple of months ago I was searching you tube and found some songs you recorded (probably later than “Shake You Down”) because they had not been viewed/played as often. It is amazing what you can find when you really aren’t looking for it. I have not been able to find them again. However, I did find a few songs the love of my life recorded. Unfortunately, they were recorded a long time ago and did not include videos. I think the last thing my friend recorded would have been a hit but he died in a car accident about a week after he recorded it. That song is not on you tube, but I did find it for sale on an online site and bought it years ago.
Strangest thing happened to me……I found you/your site…your song. I was transported literally back to the best days of my life the ‘real’ days of living, laughing, loving and dancing. Looking forward to the weekends, walking home after dancing at the disco, I am talking about the islands; no worries but what you are going to eat for breakfast, when you wake up, probably, around 1pm..ha, ha. What, I am trying to say is thanks, for letting me have confirm proof that it was all real.
You are most welcome. Thanks for writing in. Its true… music 🎶 definitely has the ability to transport us back in time.

Security issue in the older guestbook (website toolbox) has been remedied. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
hi my name is Tasha I’m from Gulfport Mississippi and I wanted to know if you have any kids and are you married. You’ve always been a crush since I was a little girl you’re a very nice looking man.
I’m a grandma again, Gregory! My daughter had a beautiful baby boy on May 1. He weighed 5lbs. 5.6oz and was 20″ long.
His name is J’Osiah Izaya Riley.
Oh, he is a precious angel.
A hearty congratulations to you and your family.
As you know, we have a new amphitheatre here in Youngstown, Ohio. We would love to have you come to our fair, but small, city to perform there one summer.
Hi Mr Abbott, This is Stuart from u.k. Just got ‘shake you down’ on… what a thrill… great video… You are up there with the best x
You are like the “Pied Piper of Soul”, luring all the ladies to California.
Happy Birthday GJA. Welcome to Medicare. To celebrate, I bought a box of Ester Price Chocolate, milk and dark covered. I’m trying to pace myself this time. I have already eaten the piece marked for 3pm tomorrow. Next time I am going to see if the store will hold it behind the counter for me then I will walk there every time I want a piece. (I have no will power.)
😆 Thank you….
blessings to you
Happy, happy birthday to you, Gregory!!! I hope you have a terrific day today!
I love your voice and music, but I cannot get past “Shake You Down”. I listen to different versions on You Tube If I had it on an old time record, tape, etc. I would have replace it because it would be worn out, Nothing compares. It will stay fresh for eternity.
I’m starting to get attached to “I’ve Got a Feeling It’s Over” and “I’ll Prove it to You”. I also noticed you recorded some songs originally sung by some other artists. Have you ever thought about recording “I’ll Remember You”? This was recorded by Don Ho and Elvis. I would like to hear it done by you. That song just really touches my heart.
You have had an interesting life.
Thank you for writing in. “I’ll remember you”… that is not a bad idea! 🙏🏼
You have great Voice! 🙂
I always love your music and i had a crush on you when i was young
Hello Gregory, I heard your song today “shake you down” itunes and downloaded the throwback also ahead of your time. It sounds as if you released the song today. Another one of my favs ON ON! When are you coming to DC/DMV and perform your majic? Miss U and love your pics and quotes. Btw you look amazing! May God keep blessing you and your family!
Thanks so much for the support! Blessings to you and yours as well.
GM Gregory ☕☕
In My Sweet Southern AlaGA Voice, How Are You . . . .
My name is Jacqueline, and I was curious about your soulful voice and your background. Thus, I am here reading your biography. 🍑
Hi Mr. Abbott, you are an amazing talent, your music is soothing to the soul. I am so impressed by your talent. About a month ago I was walking through a beauty retail store and I heard your music playing on the radio. I had to stop and listen. You have a God-given gift, an amazing voice. Looking forward to more…Blessings!
Thanks for much for your kind words….. Always inspiring to hear.
You’re most welcome Gregory…😉
I love you! Literally speaking.
Gregory, I’m a new grandmother! My granddaughter was born this morning. She is precious. But other than that, I’m doing great.
Congratulations! The very best to you and your family.
Thank you. I wish I could send you a picture of my grandbaby.
Mr. Abbott, I was listening to YouTube, mostly Motown. Despite the music you chose, YouTube likes to give one a mixture–so there I was listening of a list of music and I kept hearing you and I thought to myself, who is this guy, he’s incredibly handsome and boy can he sing. Now, I thought I had a good handle on all male singers, and I went to high school in Windsor, across from Detroit and listened faithfully to American Bandstand back in the day. I’ve got a good ear and so I decided to look you up, quite confident that you
were either dead, old and fat. Imagine my surprise when I read your impressive bio: good schools, good guy and living in NYC (what could be better?).
So, of course, I’ve heard of your sister, Diane. She is beautiful and so tall as I recall. You sound like a really good person and I’m glad you’ve had a productive, happy life and that you’re spiritual and wealthy to boot!
Great post. I am ever grateful to my fans for they are the ones who have allowed me to live my dreams.
Blessing to you Margaret.
I love your music and I am one of your biggest fans. Are you currently touring? I hope you are since I haven’t had the pleasure of attending any of your concerts.
I consider it a Privilege to comment on your Guestbook with so many Lovely and Beautiful Song to Listen to.. You just keep making The Best Music. No need to say more, your Music says it All.
You just keep those Hit Songs Coming. I was told nothing gets Old but Clothes. I Believe It. Your Voice and Style of Singing has Not Changed. ALL COMPLIMENTS to YOU, Gregory for all of the Outstanding Songs and Music you continue to make. Love Every Song. You Always Keep It Real 110%.
It was a pleasure to spot your video Shake you down on facebook I remember playing your music over and over back in the day, I always wondered what you were doing and where you were, I thought you had the most beautiful smoothest voice and still do. Your new music is awesome, you can sing to me anytime handsome. Much success and endeavors for your future.
There will never be another who can sing the way that you do. Your diversity is off the charts. To be able to sing in so many ways is Phenomenal. You have broken all barriers in the musical field. As far as i am concerned, you are the Greastest. Much praise and thanks to you and yours.
I love your new songs, For Come Ya, Namaste, and Just Say Om. Those are powerful, but moving, songs. Keep up the good work, Gregory!
It’s so good to discover you …. AGAIN (I’m reordering all of your albums).
Thank you. Many Blessings.
Beautiful music! Nice to watch videos!
Now we wish to see you live in Johannesburg, South Africa! Once you are in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban will be dying to see you also, so can’t leave them out! Any chance that your South African fans will ever see you live? That will be an honor for us that we will never forget ! Fingers crossed!
I also left you same message on your Facebook Page…
well for the first time i looked at your bio. how wonderful to have loved your music always and to find out you are this amazing man. As i sit here i am listening to your music on a rainy Saturday morning in Vancouver, Canada. Thinking how wonderful it is to have your music on such a day..
I am from Guyana and am so Proud of you. You have never strayed (that i know of) from the elegant being i loved..
Thank you for your music and all of your accomplishments…
Thanks so much for your kind words Jeanette.
Happy New Year, Gregory, and thank you for the Thanksgiving wishes. Belated Merry Christmas to you also. I hope one day to meet you, if I ever make it to California.
HNY to you as well Mercury.
I appreciate that. It is Black History Month, and I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Blessings and best wishes to you from the Buckeye State!
On my way to S.F., my daughters (at the time 4 and 10 years old ) and I were discussing one our bucket lists and that was to one day meet Gregory Abbott. Like a dream come true as we were strolling down the museum …..my daughters tapped me speechless as we look and saw you.
Thank you for your time and kindness, most importantly …for making our day….we will treasure the pic of you and my little girls. My little ones sing to your tunes to this day…….
Your music has inspired us in many ways. Again… just wanted to say thank you for your continued hard work and for sharing your love of music with the world. Crossing my fingers to see you in concert soon.
Best wishes to you this Christmas season!!!!
Hey I remember you guys…. thank you so much for your support. A very Happy New Year to you and your family.
Soon it will be Christmas, and then we will cross over into 2017. My greatest wish for you, Gregory, is that you have a very Merry Christmas, and a blessed New Year. May God continue to be with you in all your endeavors, and on this journey we call life.
My favorite part of Thanksgiving is when I have family and friends to share it with. You see, it falls on the day my dad passed away, so it’s sort of a sad time as well. But I really hope you have a blessed holiday season.
A bit melancholy too….totally understand that. Thanks for sharing…
I know I already wished you a Happy New Year, but here it is again. I’m on WhatsApp.
Do you want to hear my wish? It’s for a peaceful world, without war or hatred. Everyone would love each other, not fight. Besides that, how are you? Hope all is well. You are, and always have been, my favorite singer. Blessings and love to you , my friend.
Well, autumn is here. How are you? Hope all is well with you. As for me, I’m doing all right. In just three weeks, I’ll be 46. This year has flown by so quickly! It’s amazing. But, blessings and love to you always, dear Gregory.
Hi Gregory, hope you’re feeling fine and doing well. My name is Alice I’m from Charleston, SC. just a small note to let you know that your latest hit is a bomb, I’m so excited about you song ,all of them as a matter of fact is a hit to me. your songs play all the time on the R & B stations here in Charleston. You Mr. Abbott are my favorite soul singer all of my life. I especially love shake you down and plays it continuously. It would be great if you were able to give a concert here in Charleston, SC, a good time would be during our
MOJA ART FESTIVALS” which is between the months of September and October. We would love for you to perform at these influential, worthy festivals if at all possible, because I count you!!! as the most worthiest artist to perform. love you much
Thanks for writing in Alice. And thank you for supporting my new single “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby”. I love doing the old classics… I am working on my new release and so far it’s looking to be a combination of RnB and what I call Caribbean Soul…. but I am not in charge… that comes from up above… we will see what happens. Best to you. Gregory

I am deeply sorry for your loss, and I am praying for healing, comfort, and peace for you. Other than that, how have you been doing? Hoping you are doing very well. As for me, I am doing okay, I guess. It’s a beautiful day here in Ohio today, but a bit chilly. How is the weather there?
Happy Birthday! May your day be blessed. I didn’t forget. I have never forgotten your birthday. Also, Happy belated Easter as well. Hope it was well.

Awesome comment…. can I hire you?! LOL
