Artist of the day; JOSH GROBAN!!!

Hello my loves. How have you been? Its been pouring endlessly since yesterday and rainy days are usually music days. So I was recently re-introduced to classical music by a friend of mine (bless his heart), and I have been voraciously listening to Josh. His voice is like the waves of the sea, particularly in the classical 'Alla Luce Del Sole'. It amazed me to no great end, that an American like him sounded like he had spoken Italian all his life; especially as I saw him in a scene on the TV series 'Glee'. Remember the movie Troy? The entire soundtrack is one song, and its Josh's. (now am just showing off the information Obinna shared with me; bite me)



So I have saved the best part for last. Josh Groban has the most popular cover (arguably) of the song 'You Raised Me Up' (click here to view). That song is so inspiring, particularly when you are down.  See the lyrics below so you can sing along I guess.

 "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.

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.

There is no life - no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

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.

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.

You raise me up... To more than I can be.
