There is a proverb that says, “Never judge a book by its cover,” and this story is a excelent example of that. In 1999, Céline Dion was to do a duet with Andrea Bocelli for the Grammy Awards, but due to an unforeseen event, the male singer had to cancel the rehearsals and the gala.
Everyone panicked, they needed to find a replacement quickly! But who would be as good as that wonderful artist?! At that time, maestro David Foster thought of Josh Groban, a seventeen-year-old from whom he had heard. Initially, everyone doubted the choice because of the boy’s age.
Imagine giving the responsibility of replacing the great Andrea Bocelli to teenager! It wasn’t long before the boy was persuaded to do so, but Josh was nervous about being on the stage in front of so many people. However, as the young man began to sing, the fear went away and he made a breathtaking performance!
Céline Dion was so impressed by this 17-year-old’s performance that she still talks about it 10 years later. The female singer fell in love with his sweetness and his wonderful voice… and it is not difficult to understand why! “This young man left the stage and almost didn’t come back because he was so scared,” Céline said.
A decade after this unexpected and wonderful duet, they met again to sing the wonderful song The Prayer. Watch their incredible performance, and you’ll see why the singer fell in love with the talented young man’s voice.
They really are two phenomenal singers. Share if you agree!
