When going through a rough time, few things can provide relief the way music can.
Hearing one’s favorite song can bring them into a transfixed state of mind, one where problems don’t go away completely, but they are able to be put on hold as they take in every note and word.
“To Where You Are” by Josh Groban is one of those songs.
A rightfully-renowned vocalist, Groban’s performance is brimming with love.
He sings with a devotion that knows no bounds as his voice soars.
It’s a song of mourning as he sings:
“Can it be that you are mine, forever love, and you are watching over me from up above?”
But there’s also a bittersweet beauty to the song.
As Groban sings, we can better understand that saying goodbye is never easy, but it can sometimes be necessary.
Against the strings and piano, Groban’s voice gains more power.
He puts himself front and center while also giving the surrounding instruments a chance to express themselves.
He rightfully understands how to be generous as a performer.
This is a performance that speaks to everyone who is willing to listen.
It’s the kind of song that can inspire tears of both joy and sadness.
We should be grateful to have such a breathtaking song available.
