J Croft:

It breaks my heart that we’ve lost Tom. What a stunning soul, with such a beautiful voice. So many amazing lyrics with his vocals to carry me right out of depression. You’ll forever be missed and remembered!

Jack Holt:

In incredible sadness, what a blessing we all were given. To witness Tom’s strength. To see true brothers come together with unconditional support and pure love. To know they had a chance to experience that brotherhood and grace us with new music, interviews and support for cancer warriors everywhere. I’m gutted that it ended, but I couldn’t imagine a more graceful and beautiful ending. Bless his family and bless his brothers from The Wanted.

I’ll never forget the time I first heard of Glad You Came. That song shaped my middle school days and I really admired The Wanted for their talent. Tom Parker will always be remembered for not only his talent but for also raising awareness of brain cancer during his fight. He was the epitome of a warrior. Thank you Tom for sharing your talent with the music world ๐Ÿ’œโค
