Josh Groban at the Charlotte Time Warner Cable Arena

Gail’s son, Eric, has been fascinated by Josh Groban’s voice ever since he was a young boy. He has played each and every one of Josh’s songs thousands upon thousands of times. He can sing all of them word for word, even if they are in Italian or Portuguese. Groban’s voice is, of course, one of those extremely rare, one in a billion kind of voices. If it sounds awesome to a regular person, I often wonder what it must sound like inside Eric’s autistic brain.

Listening to Josh Groban is one of Eric’s special interests. So Gail decided to buy tickets to a concert, and we took Eric to see his idol last night in Charlotte, NC. We had good seats. Gail and Eric got to stand about 10 feet from him for a little while. It was a very special kind of night!

    1. I think you are so right. Autism comes with generous doses of obsessive thinking and anxiety. Music is one of the things that will calm him.

    1. You’d love it! He’s promoting Illuminations, but he played plenty of his older songs, too. Besides his voice, the staging and orchestration were equally impressive. Aug 16 in San Diego, and Aug 17 in LA! 🙂

    1. Eric does the same thing. He doesn’t really care whether it’s Christmas or not, he’ll play Christmas music on and off all year.
      What a voice Groban has for a song like Oh Holy Night, huh!?

  1. .Looks like you had phenomenal seats. Those photos are fantastic. I would love to see him in concert. This is the first comment I’ve left anyone in about two weeks I think. This move is exhausting! Hope all is well 🙂

    1. Our seats were good. Taking pictures in a concert is a challenge, but I do think they turned out alright.
      I hope your move is going okay! 🙂

  2. Wow, Ferd… your pics are magazine-cover amazing, as usual. I need to check out Josh, and expect that his music will be enhanced by your beautiful presentation.

    1. Wow, if you’ve never heard him, you’re in for a treat! It’s a bit of heaven. You might need a box of Kleenex! Let me know how you liked his singing!
