JOSH GROBAN

 

The Xcel Energy Center and Live Nation have announced Josh Groban, with special guest Angelique Kidjo, will perform at Xcel Energy Center on Friday, August 10, at 7:30 p.m. 

 

Known for his mature and lyrical baritone voice, Josh Groban attracts fans of all walks of life. After touring internationally in support of his latest album, "Awake," Groban returns to North America for 27 concert dates in the U.S. and Canada.   "Awake's" 13 new songs including the first single, "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)" show the Grammy® nominated Groban's tremendous growth as a vocalist, producer and songwriter since he first appeared on the musical landscape. The album contains songs in Italian, Spanish and English.

 

 

Josh Groban burst on to the international music scene in 2001 with the release of his self-titled debut album featuring the hit single, "To Where You Are." His follow up CD "Closer," with the smash hit "You Raise Me Up," brought enormous success to the young singing sensation. Two months after "Closer" was released, it rose on the Billboard charts from number eleven to number one.

 

Groban has been involved in many benefit shows, including: "The Andre Agassi Grand Slam Event For Children", singing alongside Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Don Henley and Robin Williams; "Muhammad Ali's Fight Night Foundation" which honored Michael J. Fox and others; "The Family Celebration" which was co-hosted by President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and David E. Kelley and his wife, Michelle Pfeiffer; and Michael Milken's CapCure event, which raises funds for cancer research.

 

Groban even played the role of Malcolm Wyatt in the May 2001 season finale of the television series Ally McBeal, performing "You're Still You." The series creator, David E. Kelley, was impressed at Groban's performance at The Family Celebration event, and, based on the audience reaction to Groban's singing, Kelley created a character for Groban in this finale. The character of Malcolm Wyatt was so popular, with thousands of emails from fans, that Groban was asked to return the next season to reprise his role and perform "To Where You Are."

 

Groabn has also made countless performances on Oprah Winfrey, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Jay Leno, Larry King Live, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, 20/20, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade,  two PBS specials, the Super Bowl, the Oscars and the closing ceremonies of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics where he performed "The Prayer" with Charlotte Church to an audience of over 2 billion people. His first PBS Special went on to become the No. 1 selling DVD of 2002. He also performed "To Where You Are" and then sang "The Prayer" in a duet with Sissel Kyrkjebø at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway and then joined The Corrs, Ronan Keating, Sting, Lionel Richie and others for a Christmas performance at the Vatican in Rome, Italy. In 2003, Groban performed at the David Foster created concert for World Children's Day. He performed "The Prayer" with Celine Dion and the finale song, "Aren't They All Our Children" with artists like Yolanda Adams, Nick Carter, Enrique Iglesias and Celine Dion.
