There are many things that we may enjoy about life but perhaps the thing that all of us can agree on is music. Undoubtedly, it’s one of the most powerful things that can affect us in life, either by bringing us to tears or putting a smile on our faces.
When you stop to think about it, when was the last time that you were feeling down and you heard your favorite song, only to feel better by the time it was over? I think that it happens to all of us at some point or another in our life.
Then again, there are some people who are meant to sing in the shower and others that were meant to entertain millions. Josh Groban is one of those singers that can entertain more people than most.
If you’ve never had an opportunity to see him in concert, it really is well worth the time and effort to get there. He performs in such a way that it is almost as if he is touching each person in the audience individually.
That is true when he sings any of his songs but sometimes, he also covers music from other performers. That includes what happened in the following video, when he sang a classic hit by Simon and Garfunkel.
The Sound of Silence is one of those iconic pieces that really touches our hearts. When we hear it, we often apply the words to us directly and before we know it, we are feeling very thoughtful.
When we hear Josh Groban singing, however, it is amazing. His performance is one that almost makes it as good as the original, although nobody will do it quite as well as Simon and Garfunkel.
This concert took place at Madison Square Garden and when he said that he was going to sing the song, the audience was thrilled. It was when he actually started singing, however, that they couldn’t help but be carried away with it.
Some people cover music by singing it exactly as it was first recorded. He actually put his own spin on the music, and it is one that really makes us appreciate the song even more.
We may never have the opportunity to hear this song in concert but you do have the chance to hear it in a video. It’s beautiful, and you will likely want to listen to it twice.
