How Josh Groban climbed the ladder to stardom: “One day when music producer David Foster called Josh Groban and told him he was needed to stand in during a rehearsal for a Grammy Awards performance. As fate would have it, Josh was being asked to fill in for Andrea Bocelli who was too sick to make it to his rehearsal of “The Prayer” with Celine Dion.
Josh knew that this opportunity could lead to a potentially big break for his career, but he almost did not go to the rehearsal because he didn’t feel prepared. David had to convince Josh that this was an offer he could not pass up. He was right.” [source: Inspiremore]

“Whenever we have dark times in our lives, whether we suffer from depression, or addiction, or anxiety, or even just having a really bad day, the worst is that it feels like we are suffering alone… Far too many people feel this way…
