J is for Josh Groban

If there is a voice that makes me want to sink on the ground I'm standing on and weep in joy, it's Josh Groban. Remember 'You Raise Me Up' truely genius, right? He is my 'to-go-to' artist when I feel as if my world is falling apart, or need inspiration or uplifting music, not to mention the awesomeness of the lyrics and his voice.

I remember the first time I got to know about Josh Groban was in Ally McBeal (remember that tv series with quirky characters, and each court case as strange and funny as the characters themselves? - I loved it by the way and still do. My dvd's can attest to that.). I think it was in season 4 episode 23. He plays Malcom Wyatt, a preacher's son. A girl from school agrees to go with him to the prom. Then she bails out on him. And of course, Ally gets the case.  To cut the whole story short, she goes with him to the prom, and he sings 'You are still you'. My gosh, I can't even begin to explain the feelings that song evoke in me, and how the prom crowd cheers after. Here is the clip from youtube: (the prom one didn't work, so I got this one, which is just as awe-inspiring as the other one)

Oh here is another: Broken Vow. Lara Fabian, another of my muses, did the song as well. The lyrics are soo sad, but the voice makes up for it. Magnificent.

Josh Groban is one of the most amazing artists, and humble too. He's my muse, and his music a source of comfort.  I would love to meet him hopefully one day. I'd gush the the whole day and week about Josh, but I think I'll give it a rest and let you discover  about this ..this..oh, well,, words fail me..again.

Who is your to-go-to artist? Your favourite? Does Josh make you want to spread your wings and fly?(Or wish you had wings to me?
