  • SINGER JOSH GROBAN GIVES SPECIAL THANKS TO CHARLOTTE FANS

    Artist Scheduled To Appear at Charlotte Bobcats Arena on September 2nd



    As a special thank you to his fans and the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, singer Josh Groban has committed to making a generous donation to local music education for the students of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School (CMS), it was confirmed today by Reprise Records. Groban, whose scheduled appearance at Charlotte Bobcats Arena was postponed last month due to illness, is returning to Charlotte on September 2nd as part of his SRO and critically acclaimed "Awake" Tour, according to Live Nation, the tour's national promoter.



    Under the auspices of the "Josh Groban Endowment," the 26-year-old multi-platinum star's contribution will go to the Visual and Performing Arts magnet schools program at the Northwest School of the Arts, University Park Elementary School and Dilworth Elementary School for recording and music production curriculum. Students in the program will receive additional specialized studies in the areas of visual arts, drama, music and dance.



    "Music education played such an integral part in my growth musically and in so many ways that this seemed like the ideal way to thank the city and my fans for their patience and the inconvenience they experienced regarding my rescheduled date. I'm really looking forward to returning to Charlotte and putting on an extra special show," commented Groban.



    Groban is currently touring around the US with the immensely successful "AWAKE" tour. "A crooner with the power to knock the arena senseless," raved the NY Times of Groban's current show. "More than a musically flooring performance that left the audience shaken, stirred and satisfied...a stunning visual act" raved The Patriot News. The artist's current CD "Awake" which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts has sold over two million copies. The LA native's international record sales have topped 16 million.
