In the Christmas Spirit: Josh Groban

   My first knowledge of Josh Groban was from the A.I. soundtrack, which was an outstanding bit of music from a fantastic film - one of Spielberg's best. From that initial brush with Mr. Groban, I discerned that he had a spectacular voice.

   Knowing of the young man's estimable talents, it is most proper to include his Christmas carols in our Holiday Spirit section.

Merry Christmas Diane,

And happy end of the Fall Semester.

From Josh Groban to Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas from the Family," we're covering all the bases here at BCN to add to the promise of the Yuletide.

I'm very much looking forward to your next unencumbered submission. And good holidays and good cheer.

Josh Groban is a pleasure to see in concert. His vocals are amazing and his showmanship is most entertaining. I've seen him everytime he has toured in North Carolina, with my daughters, and I'll continue to see his shows every opportunity I can. He conducts himself with class and as a gentleman at all times, and the worst language I could remember coming out of his mouth was "OH Darn!" Being from New Jersey, you could imagine my utter surprise at such a wimpy display of anger. But I appreciated it very much. He's a class act and we need more like him.

The extra-vocal group, Walk Off the Earth, has done their first Christmas carol, "Little Drummer Boy", and it is wonderfully entertaining, as all of their videos are.
Now that I am familiar with the wondrous works of melodic beauty created by the Piano Guys, each Christmas, I search for fine work and endeavor to bring it to our BCN readers.
