Josh Groban in Concert
Introduction

Josh Groban in Concert ~ IntroductionDiscovered by veteran record producer David Foster, 21-year-old singing phenomenon Josh Groban began his meteoric rise after a last-minute appearance as a stand-in for Andrea Bocelli at the 1999 Grammy Awards dress rehearsal. There, his performance of “The Prayer” with Céline Dion immediately garnered Groban several very influential fans, including Grammy host Rosie O’Donnell. Groban’s subsequent performance on O’Donnell’s talk show, several appearances on ALLY MCBEAL, and a performance at the 2002 Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony have rapidly made him one of the hottest talents in contemporary music. As his critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album continues to attract listeners with its diverse selection of classical and contemporary numbers, GREAT PERFORMANCES captures Groban in peak performance, showcasing the spectacular voice that has the power of an operatic tenor but the romantic tenderness of a pop balladeer.

    Did Josh have formal voice training or is his
    beautiful voice and incredible range a God given
    gift?

  • Jerusha

    First and foremost Josh’s voice is God given. However, he has had and continues to have training with David Romano his voice coach; who himself has a great voice. Look them both up on YouTube. Jerusha xx

    I loved the show on great performances. I remember several people asking what the song was that he sang (part of) when he sat at the piano while talking to David Foster. I am sure it has been asked and answered several times but I missed it. Could some one please help me out? Has it been released on a later album?

  • Maisha

    I had seen him before on PBS. However I fell in love with his music & a special song “Un Dia Llegara” a couple of months ago. Every time I hear it it gets to the core of my soul. The quasi flamenco classical guitar music is simply delicious & the lyrics gorgeous. This song is my anthem. Thank you Josh.

  • Rosa

  • RITA DE CASSIA

    QUANDO EU ESTOU TRISTE EU OUÇO O JOSCH , E AS MUSICAS DELE ME TRANSMITI MUITA PAZ NO CORAÇÃO!!

  • laura l.jung

    Even through my firends say that Josh Groban has a professional high brow voice that is sung in a complicated way. I am glad that he produces and is still a high archy kind of talent. One thing I couldn’t believe is the complex kind of music on just one cd that is sung in different languages. The cd itself is innovated and impressively sung. Anyway, I suppose Josh Groban and David Foster are in a busy agenda any can’t get back to me for a time. I hope that you both are doing well in whatever endeavor you accomplish. Thank you for the kind of music that will be listen to for years to come. Take care now to you both. Laura L.Jung.

    Josh Groban, in this “IN CONCERT PBS Special” under the control of David Foster (genius) is one of the GREATEST Vocal accomplishments of all time. It is simply….pure.
    When ones vibrating vocal cords strike the human heart in a positive and uplifting manner, each and every note, you KNOW it is real and it is TRUE and it is a blessing from God.
    May he never lose sight of his talents and strive daily to enrich the lives of others onstage and off.
    Take care and God bless.

  • john p

    I saw a singer at a festival in Milwaukee last year who sounds very close to Josh Grobin’s voice with a wide vocal range, I know that no one can replace Josh Groban but does anyone know who this performer is ?

  • Anne

    Josh has the voice that everyone wants to listen to…
    We do opening exercises and meditation at water aerobic classes.
    You lift me up is the best song for meditating.
