Josh Groban Information Continued
Josh Groban was born in Los Angeles, California, to a Jewish American father (a descendant of immigrants from Poland and Russia) and a Norwegian American mother. In late 1998, the 17-year-old Josh Groban was introduced by his vocal coach to Grammy-winning producer / arranger David Foster. Josh Groban worked for Foster as a rehearsal singer on a series of high-profile events, including the 1999 Grammy Awards -- where, as a stand-in for Andrea Bocelli, he rehearsed Foster's "The Prayer" with Celine Dion -- and the January 1999 inauguration of Gray Davis as governor of California. Josh auditioned with "All I Ask Of You" from Phantom Of The Opera for the latter, which occurred only one month previous to the Grammy Awards.
On November 20, 2001, Josh Groban's self-titled debut album was released and, over the next year, it went from gold to double-platinum. In 2002, Josh Groban performed "The Prayer" with Charlotte Church at the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, and by November, he had his own PBS special. The following month, he performed "To Where You Are" and "The Prayer" at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway, and joined The Corrs, Ronan Keating, Sting, Lionel Richie and others for a holiday performance at the Vatican in Rome, Italy.
In November 2003, Josh Groban's second album, Closer, was released. Josh Groban himself said that he believed that this second album was a better reflection of him and that his audience would be able to get a better idea of him personally from listening to it. In 2006, Josh Groban released his latest album, Awake.
