Ramin Karimloo is an actor and singer best known for his performances on London’s West End and Broadway. He has played the leading male roles in both of the West End’s longest running musicals: the Phantom and Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera, and Jean Valjean, Enjolras, and Marius in Les Misérables. Ramin made his Broadway debut as Jean Valjean in the 2014 revival production of Les Misérables, for which he received a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical nomination.
He has brought his amazing vocal prowess to the 12 songs on his new CD called From Now On. The title song is from the Movie Musical, The Greatest Showman. Ramin’s voice is amazing and he sounds wonderful singing pretty much anything! The album contains songs from The Last Five years, Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, The Bridges of Madison County, among others. One of my favorite songs on the album is “What You Own” which is from my favorite musical Rent. Another favorite is the classic song “I Will Always Love You,” from the movie The Bodyguard.
