At just 25 years of age, Josh Groban is a veteran of countless television appearances, and is a regular guest on the Oprah Winfrey show. His 40-city North American concert tour broke records by selling out in just twenty minutes and he sang to an audience of more than two billion people at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics’ closing ceremony.
His popularity has spawned numerous fan clubs and his devotees call themselves “Grobanites”, testament to the loyalty his fans feel towards him and his art. With operatic-style influences infiltrating the younger market more and more these days, performers such as Charlotte Church, Il Divo and Andrea Bocelli are Groban’s peers, yet he can simultaneously break and mend hearts with his earnest lyrics and contemporary take on love and life issues.
What appears to matter most to Groban is the opportunity to continue to explore the ranges of his talent and to work alongside music’s most acclaimed and appreciated artists. It seems Josh Groban is a fan as much as a star.
