Biography

Los Angeles, United States (2001 – present)

Joshua Winslow Groban (born in Los Angeles, CA , on February 27, 1981) is an American singer known for his mature, dusky baritone voice. His musical style ranges from classical to pop.

After only one year in the theatre department at Carnegie Mellon University, his choice school, Groban left when he was offered a recording contract at Warner Bros. Records through David Foster’s own 143 Records imprint. With regard to signing Groban, Foster said: “I love his natural ability in the pop and rock arena, but I love his sense of classics even more. He’s a true musical force to be reckoned with” [5]. Therefore, under Foster’s influence, Groban’s first album focused more on the classics with songs such as “Gira Con Me” and “Alle Luce Del Sole,” the first ones decided on by Foster and Groban.

Soon after being picked up by David Foster, Groban went on to perform “There For Me” with Sarah Brightman on her 2000-2001 La Luna Tour, featured on her “La Luna” Concert DVD, and made his recording debut by singing “For Always” with Lara Fabian on the movie soundtrack to A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001). He also became involved in many benefit shows, including the following: “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” (2001) which was co-hosted by President Clinton and his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and David E.
