My best friend was dying. She had Cystic Fibrosis and was starting to decline, her breathing was weathered and her amazing energy was now forced. We spent the day at the beach (followed by a few cocktails), and listening to the entire Closer cd in the car on the way home. Shannon passed away a few days later.
As her best friend, I wanted to honor her memory and joined the CF Foundation running team to run the prestigious Boston Marathon. I'm not a runner at ALL, but our team raised $150k for the CF ward at Boston Children's Hospital - they support the families as they stay with their children in the hospital.
The day of the race, I had my iPod ready and was nervous but ready to go. My heart was a beating a million thumps a minute and I felt Shannon with me the entire day.
But as the day went on, I was struggling. And as the mile marker for mile 17 was ahead of me, I couldn't go on. I was hurt and my heart was sad. I missed my best friend. And I stopped, put my hands on my knees and started to cry. And there was the song.... You Raise Me Up on my iPod. Shannon sent her love through you and your song.
Why can't a get a copy of "O Holy Night" on MP3 anywhere?
A Big Fan!
Chaque fois que Josh Dans apparait Une émission, je suis toujours Emu par sa voix ...
One day I thought I have it all, the next day I had nothing and I felt so lost ... and I don't know how in this moments of sadness I heared "February Song" and it's so hard for me to explain through words that this lyrics had good effect on me; this wonderful lyrics who express so good the dispare, the anguish that I felt after a good old friend went and somehow this lyrics was healing my sorrow.
I think you felt very lonely when you wrote this lyrics, so all you have to do is to let your fans, grobanites or simple admirers to fill your heart with love, this love that you give to us through your music, this unconditional love.
It is astonishing how you achieve to sing from your heart, to feel every sound ... even if I could not hear, it will be enought to look into your eyes when you sing to understand what it is in your heart.
Leaving aside your celebrity, fame, high reputation what I admire most of you are your big heart, your sincerity, your gratitude, qualities so rare in our days to meet.
Sadly, I haven't been to a Josh Groban concert. :( But if he's ever in Omaha, Ne or Kansas City... you can bet I will be there! I've already recruited a car full of my friends to go along on this journey. I've converted them into Grobanites! And we ARE going!
I believe it was in 2007, that we have the best seat in the house which were on the floor in front of the stage. It was so nice to see Josh sing so close to us. I believe he has a true gift of God with the voice of a live angel.
Thank you Josh for sharing your God given talent with the rest of the world.
There was a very cute film of Josh through his childhood years, and then finishing with his career to date. His friend, Angelique Kidjo, spoke about Josh and introduced him to the audience. He started with “Canto Alla Vita.” It was such a treat to see Josh perform live again. And to see him play the synthesizer and drums this time was magnificent. It was an outstanding performance and an honor to witness his special night.
He was absolutely amazing. I was actually pretty close to the stage and I enjoyed myself very much. His voice was amazing, as always, and it sounded even better with the wonderful orchestra behind him. He sang wonderfully, and to my surprise, never got pitchy.
Well the long and short of it is that I haven't been to a Josh Groban concert yet. For whatever reason I just haven't been able to go. It just wasn't meant to be. But this next tour I will not miss, even if I have to move mountains.
