Granted moves me like Don’t Give Up. I needed motivation and purpose then and do now.

on July 4, 2018 - 1:04pm

I am almost 71 and must say my life has had some pretty bad health concerns and family worries. Many times I really felt I couldn’t help myself and there was no where to turn. I heard the song Don’t Give Up sung by Josh and all the sadness just poured out of me. I felt like I could survive. I played it over and over and to this day it has a profound effect on me. Two years ago Ipurchased a meet and greet through PBS. It was one of the bestinvestments I ever made. It was at Mohegan Sun. I was by myself waiting on line in terrible heat.

The new Christmas Song

on October 15, 2017 - 8:02pm

I have been listening to Josh sing for many years and have had his voice in my heart and head since the very first time I heard him sing. I pre-ordered new Noel Cd from JG store. I opened up e-mails shortly after and there it was The Christmas song. As I listened to every word, I thought these are the words we all need to hear. They are so needed today. We are all equal. We have had enough fear. He tells us in so many words that we can stop war - it is all up to us. We must stop the hate. How brave, how real he is.

Your beautiful voice and zest for life is helping me get through these very rough , painful days.

For many years one of my sons has been a drug addict and suffered from mental illness. It started at 15 and he is now 39. It has been so hard watching him making him making these terrible choices and coming close to death recently and not really making a difference to him. It is so painful to experience your child in the depths of darkness and you can't do a thing.
Josh, your music from when I first heard it many years ago just warmed my heart. The depth of feeling in your vice is so healing.

A gift I will never forget

on February 24, 2017 - 6:16pm

A month after Christmas my youngest son Joshua and my older son Rodger notified me that their gift to me was that Joshua was going to drive down from Massachusetts, pick me up and take me to The Great Comet. I am 69 years old and reacted like a child being told she was going to Disney. More than that my family knows what a healing effect Josh Groban's music has had on my life. I never thought I would be able to do this. How would I get there? Who would help me around the city? I walk with a cane and cannot walk fast. How will I ever keep up?

Each day is a blessing.

on January 2, 2017 - 6:55am

I have had a rough year with diagnosis and treatments for breast cancer. Dealt with son and daughter in law that rushed husband and I to move out of , get ready to sell, and put house on market in very short time. They took us to see condos near where they lived while we had our house was on the market. Rushed to make decision. Through all of this my physical and mental health were declining rapidly.
