Without divulging the particulars of our phone call - all I can say is Pia is the most sincere, most genuine person you could ever wish to talk to. She is warm, sweet, and funny and there is not a doubt in my mind that everybody who had the pleasure to speak to her this afternoon is grinning from ear to ear right now.

I couldn't agree more. She put such a huge smile on my face. I was so nervous leading up to the call, she really is sweeter than sweet, and anyone would easily be able to tell that she really is geniune in her loving her fans!

Without divulging the particulars of our phone call - all I can say is Pia is the most sincere, most genuine person you could ever wish to talk to. I fully agree mshalo18 If there were more Pia's in this world it would just be so beautiful.I could see from this call the confidence that Pia has now compared to a few years ago.Pia is on her way to beoming a force in the music industry.I just hope everyone realizes the logistics in preparing Pia to introduce that break out album and I'm sure that Harvey Mason Jr is guiding her well.

I told her about that over the past 18 months I have developed twitter followers that consist of Radio stations,DJ'S and indie artists.They consistently retweet my Pia and piaparadise shouts and I appreciate that because when her single or album comes out they will be a major force in promoting it for Pia.Pia responded with a tweet

Hey All from @PiaToscano Thank you for all of you & your followers shout outs & support!!! I love you all!And that tweet will go well in there continued support.
So God Bless You Pia Toscano and I will keep on trying to help you move forward

 Where to start. We all know Pia is just the sweetest and caring person. I always say Pia is an angel which she is. I had the biggest smile all day yesterday and again today after the call with Pia!! A pleasure to help such a great cause. Pia is a very special young lady on her way to being a star in music! I can't think of anyone who deserves success more than Pia. Pia is already the sweetP's shining star!! The sweetP's  are all going to rally and make Pia's album the biggest selling in idol history. Pia's call made for a very special fathers day weekend!

Pia made so many sweetps smile today with her phone calls!!!

Love always Pia, your an angel!

Tony

I had the privilege of talking to Pia on Saturday for the first time ever. Funny how on the phone she sounds just like Pia, just like you hear/see on TV, videos, etc. What did you think she would sound like dummy! LOL!!  Same sweet and humble gal we have all come to adore.

Firstly, I will say that I lost my Mom to cancer, so this cause is close to my heart. I won’t go into detail on that, but I shared some of the story with Pia and how her singing had significant impact at the right time.

Talked a bit about back to her AI days and favorite performances. And I talked to her a bit about Vancouver, Canada where I live (Canadians love music too!) and that I hope to see her up here one day.

She was thankful for my support, but it struck me how much more we have to thank her for. Thanks for being the role model and positive influence on so many lives, connecting with her fans and taking the time to talk to them. Thanks for sharing her incredible gift in voice with us that I am sure will bring joy to many others as it has to me.

Amazing opportunity to talk with her!

Yesterday was filled with extreme nervousness... I was headed to a housewarming (My cousin moved into a new house a state away) And I was most worried about cell-phone service. At 1:00, I started creeping on twitter and saw that Pia was tweeting people saying she was calling them. My father and mother were in the car with me, I told them, "If I tell you to roll the windows up and turn off the radio, DO IT!!!" They said okay. At 1:08PM, my phone went off (We were still in my state, cell phone reception was great!) and I answered. I said "hello?" twice and got the woman from Relay for Life and then I heard her voice. That voice I LOVE hearing. I had mentioned on my donation thing along with my phone number that I was hard of hearing and to speak clearly. Pia spoke SO CLEARLY I could hear EVERYTHING I was so happy! She thanked me for donating and I told her, "Of course! Anything to help the cause!" I also thanked her for being there for all of us "Sweet Ps"- tweeting us, talking to us, etc. and she said "No Problem! Anytime!" She then asked what my plans were for the weekend and I told her I was headed to a housewarming and she said to tell everyone she said hi. At that moment my parents decided to yell out "HI PIA!! WE LOVE YOU PIA!!!" I was red in the face with embarrassment but she was laughing so hard, thanking them. My father yelled, "ROCK ON PIA, KEEP ON ROCKING!" My Mother yelled, "WE LOVE YOU PIA I LOVED YOU ON IDOL! COME BACK TO THE EAST COAST!!" Pia responded, "Thank you, I most definitely will!" We then said our goodbyes. I tweeted her an apology on behalf on my loud and annoying parents to which she responded: Pia Toscano ‏@PiaToscano 15 Jun @Panda_Manda29 aww! So great to talk to you. Your parents are the sweetest ❤ Definitely THE BEST phone conversation of my life. <3

It's so funny- Pia is always so incredibly gracious in thanking the Sweet Ps for all their support. In reality the truth of the matter is she has no idea how much happiness SHE brings people and I always feel like I should be thanking HER. As I told her- supporting her and her career is truly a labor of love, because she is just so deserving of all the success in the world.

 There was really no reason for Pia to call me and thank me but she did anyway because that's just Pia's way.  She is truly one of the most caring and generous people I know. I consider myself lucky to know her and her amazing family. She will forever have my love and support. She is definitely deserving of so many great things to come and I can't wait to watch her talent and career unfold. I am looking forward to a lifetime of her music and I couldn't be happier for her. I will definitely be a SweetP forever.......

Something I noticed about all of your wonderful stories is how sweet and caring Pia is. Not only did she take the time out of her weekend to call so many of us, but she really seemed to put everyone at ease, and go with the flow, as the case was with atonao haha.

I personally was nervous that I'd have nothing to say, or I'd be too embarrassed to say enough, but Pia and I had a normal conversation....yes, I was grinning ear to ear the entire time, but she didn't know that haha.

She has that amazing ability because she IS the girl next door...with an unspeakable talent :-)

Had a very nice (and funny) call with Pia on Saturday. Was the first time I talked to her as she had to fly out right after the Idol show in MN to tape a morning show so we didn't get to say hi then. Pia is a very sweet gal. My 13 year old daughter Annika was right next to me when the phone rang and was hoping to talk to Pia. Now Annika is extremely shy and quiet and Pia said to Annika that she was sorry she didn't get to meet her right after the Minnesota concert. Annika was asked if she had any questions for Pia and said yes...then froze. It was too cute. Wasn't quite a Miss Utah USA moment, but close. She gave the phone back to me and I just mentioned that I do have to give her a little grief as I need to leave my man card at the door when I call myself a "Sweet P" (I think guys should be Pia's Pirates or something more rugged...the ladies don't dig dudes with flower nicknames) and wished her luck. She chuckled and I wished her well in the future and didn't want to keep her on the phone long as I knew she probably had a ton of calls to make. So the phone call gave me something to lovingly tease my daughter about (she was so funny about it after) and reconfirmed that Miss Toscano is indeed all that and a bag of chips.

Pia and I exchanged greetings. She thanked me for my donation to her Relay For Life Team. Pia asked if I have any fun plans this week? I said no, but I am having a family gathering for the 4th of July! I asked Pia how things are going, She said well! I asked little bit about how her deal with Underdogs Entertainment works. I told Pia it's a little confusing to me. Pia talked about it, as freely as she could. Pia is still hopeful that her debut album will be released in a few months! In the meantime, Pia is doing these side projects, with Jared Lee. We've all tried to be patient, waiting for Pia's album. It has been in the works for about 2 years. Pia reminded me that Alicia Keys and Katie Perry's debut albums took a couple of years, before they were released. And they have both rocketed to big success! To be honest, I needed to hear this from Pia. I have felt a little discouraged, lately. I know that Pia wanted to make her calls brief. She didn't make me feel rushed at all. In fact, I kind of ended the call myself. I thanked Pia so much, for calling! I was with my Mom when Pia called. Mom wanted to say a quick "hi!" We then hung up. I'm not a kid. But I'm was still so happy that I got to talk with Pia! She is a very special woman. And so good to her fans!

Sounds like a great experience Chris! Patience is a virtue, and it will undoubtedly pay off in the long run. I'm kind of happy that Pia is waiting for her chance, rather than putting out an alnum that produces just 1 hit song. With a voice like that, Pia will be making hit records for a long time!

Thanks for sharing!!
