Since the release of his extraordinarily successful debut album in 2001, Josh Groban has become a musical phenomenon, selling well over five million albums worldwide, appearing on TV many times and performing at the closing ceremonies of the Salt Lake City Olympics, which was seen by over a billion people.
Josh recently released his second album. Read on to learn all about it.


1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Josh Groban’s newest album, Closer, is a stunning collection of thirteen diverse and distinctive tracks. Listening to the album is a wonderful experience of melody and lyric, language and emotion. About the album, Josh says, “What most people know about me, they know through my music. This time, I’ve tried to open that door as wide as possible. These songs are a giant step closer to who I really am and what my music is all about. Hence the title.”
Check out some of the lyrics to the beautiful song “You Raise Me Up.”
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up…
To more than I can be

I saw Josh Groban for the first time on the TV show Ally McBeal. He played a high school kid who was a great singer, but who couldn’t find a date to the prom. Although he obviously had an extraordinary voice, I had no idea at the time that he was going to become such a huge star.
I can’t say that I really like Josh Groban’s music, but I do appreciate his talent. His voice is amazing – but the style of his music isn’t up my alley.
