With one of the most dynamic voices today, pop and classical singer Josh Groban's career took off after he started working for composer/arranger/producer David Foster as a rehearsal singer, which led to some high-profile events, including the 1998 Grammy Awards (at which he rehearsed Foster's 'The Prayer' with Celine Dion in place of Andrea Bocelli). That led to a recording contract with Warner Bros. Records through Foster's 143 imprint. His eponymous debut album was released in 2001, selling over two million copies. Groban even had his own PBS special in November 2002. Groban issued 'Closer' in 2003, topping the Billboard 200 album chart. With two live albums and appearances on several soundtracks, Groban returns with his third studio release, 'Awake.'
