Thinking of you Josh

on January 15, 2007 - 11:51am

Dear Josh - Wow! Have you been busy since I last wrote in November. I wish that I could say that I was less busy so that I could follow you more. But as a lowly preschooler teacher, I am pretty busy myself.

I am so glad that you having great success with AWAKE, and your upcoming concert. I pray every night, that if it be good for your soul, that you would have much success from this new album and tour. From what I am reading on FOJG - sounds like those prayers are being answered in amazing ways.

Even though I will never meet you, I look forward to seeing you on March 10, in Rochester, NY.-where we live My parents. my husband and I have great seats with full view of the stage. I told a few friends that you were coming to town, and they purchased tickets too. I pray to God every night that I will be there and I am confident that it will be a memorable experience.

Please excuse the melancholic tone of this letter. All the fans here are always ready to hear from you. I wish that I could be too. I hate being the fan that is behind the "Josh Groban" curve.

Anyway, I am glad that you had a great holiday season. I hope that the memories of times with family and friends comfort and strenghten you on the long days and nights when you are on tour. Rest assured of my prayers for you. May God bless you abundantly. Josh Groban, where ever you are.

Bravissimo Josh - Way to Go!

on November 26, 2006 - 2:34pm

Dear Josh - Well, I can not believe that your did it, but you did. You created another fantastic album that is quickly becoming my favorite. I did not think that you could not get any better vocally, but like fine wine you voice is as luscious as ever. My heart just melts with every song.

I am even enjoying the music at the end of the album with the African influences. It is SO AWESOME to hear you work with theses rhythms. You did a fantastic job incorporating them into this album. I should have never doubted you because you are "The Voice."

Thank you for taking the time and energy to make this album. Yesterday, I received IL DIVO's third album Siempre. It is not as good as AWAKE. You can tell tha they rushed through producing this album, and the quality of the music is not a good as yours. As your fan, I hated the wait, but in the end it was worth it all.

I am so excited that your are coming to Rochester on March 10, 2007. I have my tickets. I am bringing my parents and hopefully my HOG. I am sure that the concert will be as wonderful as the album is.

Josh, I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you for giving us this album, and may God continue to bless you - wherever you are.

Your devoted fan,

My Blue Beanie and Other Matters

on September 1, 2006 - 9:24am

Dear Josh - I bet you that it has been awhile since I wrote, but I was almost going to write you an angry letter a few weeks ago when I was on . I discovered there the Internet edition of your Closer CD for sale. This really pissed me off because here in Grobania that version of CD has been sold out for at least two years, and you were selling it on JG. com. How unfair to us who pay good money to be on this website, and we are told that it is sold out. Anyway I checked back later only to discover that even on JG. com this version of this CD is sold out too. So I can breathe a litle bit easier too.

But during that visit to, I finally replaced the Josh Groban beanie that I lost this past winter at the grocery store. This beanie is not black like the first one, it is blue with your name and the Closer tour written on either side of it. That is OK. If it is like its predescessor, it will be the warmest beanie that I own, Now I just have to get a blue coat to go with it. I picked one out in the Lane Bryant Catalogue, and I think that I will order it as soon as I go back to teaching preschool.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for releasing that 30 second clip of the song "You Are Loved." It has been such a long time since I have seen you. You looked beautiful and you sounded Heavenly. I can not wait until that album is released just because I want to hear the full verson of that song. And if this time you have an Internet version of this album - I am buying it. I want all Josh, all the way. Thank again for a such a wonderful reaser. I am praying for you and for the success of this album. I hope that my prayers will be answered in the affirmative - if that is God's will and if that is what is good for your soul.

So, Josh, may God bless you wherever you are. May He keep you close to Him all the days of your earthly life.

Your devoted fan,
