The most popular music today either has someone rapping in regards to the hood, or someone rocking out with little singing talent. Apparently lately the art of singing the skin loses in making music. I know this sounds impossible, but increasingly popular songs are being released on the radio by individuals who can not sing adequately at all. What happened towards the Stings, the Celine Dions and the Stevie Wonders on the planet? Now we are playing Jay Z, Britney Spears, and Korn. Even though many poor singers are getting most of the playing time around the radio, there is a singer available that can sing adequately and has become extremely popular over the last five years. The singer’s name is Josh Groban.
Josh Groban has always loved music since he was obviously a small child, anf the husband started singing during the seventh grade. Groban was very happy singing and acting when he was in middle school then high school, but his grades began to slip, so he took some time off to get his grades back. When he graduated from senior high school he was accepted in to the Carnegie Mellon Theater department where he studied music and theater. He only stayed in college for one year, as he was signed with a recording contract by the friend of his vocal coach, David Foster.
Josh Groban learned from his classical music teachings as he was young, and he also looked up to and learned from many musicians as well. Some of these other musicians were Radiohead, Paul Simon, Sting, Peter Gabriel, and Bjork. As you can tell from his wide range of influences, Josh Groban brings an ideal blend of smooth popular and classical music. If you like to listen to very melodic and sweet sounding music, complimented by the very strong and powerful voice, then Josh Groban is an ideal music for you. Josh’s popularity has skyrocketed through the roof over the past few years, so look for many more great things from this young singer/actor.
