He is raising the bar in the record industry with his booming baritone voice. We sat down with 22-year-old singing sensation Josh Groban just a day after the release of his second CD, "Closer." Now everyone gets a closer look at the young talent who keeps getting more and more critical acclaim for his unique classical pop style.
Groban's strengths aren't just singing, he plays piano on the new CD, writes several of his own songs, and sings in English, Italian, French, and Spanish. He says, "It is such an exhilarating feeling to have stuff that comes directly from you."
As Groban embarks on his first world tour in January, with 55 shows in just four months, he knows life has definitely changed. He says, "I donít have a problem getting a table in restaurants anymore."
Groban also has no problems getting the girl. He has been dating "American Wedding's" January Jones since January.
