Already an international star, the young Josh Groban brings operatic passion and classical themes to the masses. Doe-eyed, with curling ringlets, Groban is cute and cuddly compared to the swarthy Andrea Bocelli, yet he definitely possesses a true vocal gift to back up his clean-cut marketing appeal. Along with Bocelli, Charlotte Church (and the much artsier Audra McDonald and Mandy Patinkin), Groban is helping to reintroduce operatic, pre-pop singing to the public by adding modern arrangements and instrumentation. Whether Groban sings a cappella, or backed by a traditional orchestra, he always delivers.
