I know it sounds trite, but I'm more connected to my feelings. After all, over the past few years, I've had an in-your-face existence. There's less artifice in what I do and I can bring myself to the work more totally--not as an escape--but as an affirmation of being alive!

-Laurie Beechman, as quoted in TheaterWeek, 1995

For what seems like forever I have known Laurie Beechman's voice from the original Broadway cast recording of ANNIE; I just didn't know the name "Laurie Beechman." Her first-class Broadway voice certainly brought a great deal to "NYC." May she rest in peace.

Dear Ms. Beechman, I know you only from your relatively brief performance on the original Broadway cast recording of ANNIE -- but what a performance! With your incredible voice, you truly made an impression in that "NYC" number. I am very sorry you had to leave us so soon. God bless you.

Every time I listen to I Thank You For Your Love it brings me to tears. Is there a sweeter song and could it be sung any more sweetly and sincerely? Didn't know about her career and untimely passing until recently, but she will live in my memory as a voice like an angel. She has left us such extraordinary gifts. This is a wonderful tribute to a wonderful life.

I recently found the Songs of Hope album, and have been learning the arrangements, and have read a lot about Laurie and her legacy...I love singing with her, and feel as though I am channeling her spirit as I sing..

I first discoverd Laurie Beechman though a recording of the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Tony awards performance. I looked her up online and was very sorry to see that she had passed away. I ordered her "No One is Alone" album and enjoyed it immensely. A year or so later my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer - I listened to this album over and over and took great comfort in it, most especially in "You'll Never Walk Alone" throughout that journey. My mother has been cancer free for 7 years now and I've been meaning to share with Laurie's friends and family how much comfort her work still brings to so many, myself especially.

As I sit here listening to Joseph sound track I am sad of Laurie's passing, even though it was a while ago. In 1982 I saw JATATDC with my parents. First time to New York and Broadway. I was blown away by the show and in particular by Laurie's performance. It was that night that night that I decided to become an actor. I have only been back to NY once just recently but I am an actor. It is because of that night watching Laurie and company. Being a 15 year old boy at the time, I must say that I also fell in love with Laurie. I forced my parents to buy the soundtrack that night and wore it out. Anyway I just wanted to let you know that Laurie had a profound effect on my life. God Bless her! Best John Swasey

I first encountered Laurie Beechman in the off-b'way production of Joseph. I was enthralled by her singing voice and stage presence. I told all my friends to see the show. Later when it moved to b'way, I saw it a few more times. She was truly unique and supremely talented!

I'm sitting here in tears as I listen to my CD of Listen to My Heart. Just unpacked it after not being able to find it for several years. So glad to find this website to read as I listen. A friend introduced me to Laurie's angelic voice when I lived in the Philly area in the late '80s, early '90s. I was fortunate to see her as The Narrator at the Walnut Street Theater, and now I realize I saw her in Cats in NYC when I took my parents to see their first-ever Broadway show. What a talent and special spirit, who has found a home in my heart all these many years. Thank you, Laurie.

My Darling Laurie:
How many days and nights did we hunker together? Talking,singing(i out of key, of course)and just looking at what would have been distant rainbows clearing our already mutual dreams. I miss you terribly to this day and at 60+ we would have rocked. Love ya girl. Deborah

She was truly the most unbelievable talent and the most wonderful person. I miss her every day, I would say she was taken too soon but I know she was just an angel on this earth and that she was needed back in heaven. I love you Laurie.
