Well I’m going to give this writing in the journal thing a shot. I am very excited that tomorrow is the ticket presale. I can’t wait for the Houston show. I have never seen Josh Live. I have kind of been vaguely aware of Josh since he’s come out, but never did go all out. I saw him sing at the world serious and was blown away. I had never seen someone do such a magnificent job of the National Anthem. Patriotism is very important to me and I am always almost weary when someone begins to sing that because I’ve seen so many people just butcher it. I ordered every CD of his I could get my hands on at the time right after that.

Recently I had to get my first MRI and they let me bring a CD to listen to while I was in the machine. I chose “Closer”. I am extremely claustrophobic and was really scared to go in the machine, but they put the headphones on me and I closed my eyes and just let the music take me away. Next thing I knew the test was over. It has been so long since music has affected me that way. “Si Volvieras A Mi” is definitely one of my favorite songs of all time. It is so rare to hear someone put the meaning and feelings that go into a song into their singing of that song. Josh never leaves anything out.

Having had this reaction to listening to his music, I checked out his website and found out he was recording a new album and he had just released “You Are Loved (Don’t Give Up)” to download. I immediately downloaded it and was so touched by it. This is the perfect time in my life to have heard that. I needed that message. I really thank him for that. I am a Grobanite for life now! I am telling everyone I know about him and how wonderful his music is. JOSH ROCKS!
