Touched my Life

I can't describe the feelings I have as I anxiously wait to attend my first Josh Groban concert. I can't believe that I will experience live the beautiful, melodic voice which has expressed the words of my heart through times of joy, and times of despair. Josh, you sang words of encouragement through years of admission rejections as I pursued my dream of studying medicine ("Don't Give Up (You Are Loved)"). You expressed my sorrow as I clung to whatever hope I could find ("Higher Window", "Love Only Knows"), and my resolution when I had to make a decision to end the destruction that was tearing me apart ("Broken Vow"). You guided me and gave me comfort in my spiritual life ("You Raise Me Up"). You sang to me during the deepest, darkest times in my life, and I sang with you and gained confidence in my voice. I finally took up violin, an instrument that I desired to play since I was little, after listening so many times to your music, especially Mi Mancherai.
I know the experience of listening to Josh singing live will be bittersweet, but mostly sweet. The beauty and soul expressed through Josh's voice affects me down to my inner core, and I know the depth at which his voice and lyrics touch me emotionally will affect me as deeply as my life experiences have. The tears will fall as my heart bleeds, but I believe this may be the final closure I need to move on.
