Oh my gosh, that was the most beautiful music I have ever heard. Josh Groban has an absolutely amazing voice, and it is even richer and more beautiful in person than it is on album, if that is even possible! Most artists are great in the recording studio, but not so great live. Josh was simply amazing.

Music rarely touches my soul as his does. His genre is interesting; it's almost modern opera/inspirational/adult contemporary. It's not a concert where you stand up and scream. It's one where you close your eyes and drown in the music. Not only are his vocals amazing, but the instrumentation...he had this amazing violist...I don't remember her name but I was amazed by her talent. I love to listen to the viola, and that mixed with his vocals -- all I can say is wow. He sings mostly in English and Italian, but also in Spanish. One of my favorite songs of his, "Si Volvieras a Mi" was not sung, which was disappointing, but it was still an amazing concert. He did sing "You Lift Me Up", which is one of my favorite songs. Gilly introduced that song to me back in February after I broke up with the love of my life. The song really touched my soul.

It was just amazing. We don't have talent like that on the air waves much these days, and it's a shame, because he is truly an artist. I would much rather listen to soulful and inspirational music such as his than the R&B crap that only talks about sex which is played so often nowadays. I'm just glad that Gilly introduced me to Josh Groban. What a spectacular show.
