Possessing one of the most outstanding and instantly recognizable voices in music, singer,
songwriter and actor Josh Groban is a triple-threat who has entertained fans across the globe with his
multi-platinum albums and DVDs (over 25 million sold worldwide), electrifying live performances, and
comedic film and television appearances. All That Echoes was recently named the number one album on
the Nielsen SoundScan charts, selling 145,000 copies in its first week. The Los Angeles native first
broke through in 2001 with his self-titled double-platinum debut album, followed by 2003’s multi-platinum
Closer, featuring the smash hit “You Raise Me Up”, and 2006’s double-platinum Awake. In
2007, the Grammy-nominated star became the best-selling recording artist of the year thanks to sales
of Awake and his blockbuster Grammy-nominated Christmas album, Noel – the best-selling
album of 2007. Groban ranks as Billboard’s 14th top-selling artist of the 2000s with more than 20
million units sold in the U.S. alone. He is the only artist to have two albums appear on the Top 20
best-selling albums list of the past decade. In November 2010, Groban released Illuminations,
which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard’s Top 200 chart (Groban’s fourth consecutive Top 5 chart bow)
and reached platinum status just two months later. In the year following Illuminations’
release, Groban completed an 87-city “Straight To You” World Tour, appeared in the feature film
Crazy, Stupid, Love and on NBC’s The Office.
