Not sure what to say?

I too, just recently found the beautiful music of Celtic Thunder and the wonderful voice of George. The music you've brought us is heartfelt, full of love and pride. As a professional drummer, I feel your Thunder , George. Thanks...

The Donaldson family will be in my heart and in my prayers always

Will forever miss you, I will always be hearing your voice. May you rest in eternal peace.

R.I.P. you were an amazing singer, will miss you in C.T.

didnt know george but had all his music he will be missed rest in piece and sing to all the angels

Rest In Peace George you are missed greatly! Bad news I was at work when I found out! George is loved forever

Oh my stars...I can't believe I'm just finding this out now that such a marvelous voice is no more to be heard. I had watched a recent show of Celtic Thunder on PBS their 10 anniversary special; and, I was wondering why George Donaldson wasn't on the stage. His presence and voice was to me the corner stone to an amazing ensemble of talented singers. I will miss his story painting voice of songs. Rest amongst the angle voices.

Hard to believe its been 4 years since you left this earth seems like yesterday still. You were an amazing talent and a truly great man! Rest in Peace George. Tawny
