Joshua Winslow Groban, popularly known as Josh Groban, is an American singer, songwriter, and actor with several multi-platinum albums to his credit. Although he is best known for his romantic ballads songs, he also likes to perform opera and classical songs in Italian, Spanish, and French. Groban was inspired by music at an early age, but he did not take it up seriously till he was in the seventh grade and auditioned for a school event. Although his teacher was impressed with his voice and allowed him to perform a solo, he did not become popular with the kids who loved to listen to rap. He initially studied acting and decided to pursue a career in singing only later. Groban, who did not want to limit himself to one particular musical style, came to prominence with his debut album in 2001, and became the best-selling new male artist. In fact, his first four solo albums were super hits, and were certified multi-platinum. In 2007, he was the number one best selling artist in the United States. Besides his singing career, he has appeared in four films and about 22 TV series till date. Also a philanthropist, he is a member of Americans for the Arts Artists Committee, and has set up the Find Your Light Foundation to make young people aware of arts and culture.
