Not only has he been inspiring audiences with his resonating, operatic voice for twelve years and counting, singer/songwriter/producer Josh Groban was listed as the #1 best selling musical artist in the United States in 2007, has sold over twenty million records in under ten years, has sang alongside Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, and Elton John, and has been in several movies and television shows, such as Glee. He has also appeared on Oprah six times, as well as Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and several other notable talk shows.
As if all that weren’t enough, he started the Find Your Light foundation in 2004, a charity organization which helps children in need by providing instruments to schools, funding to art schools, and helping children use art and technology to better their lives. Revolutionary activist and Nobel Peace Prize holder Nelson Mandela was so touched by Groban’s efforts in his charity that he appointed him as an Official Ambassador for Mandela’s Project 46664, which helps raise awareness of AIDs and HIV in Africa.
After reading that, you’re probably gaping at the screen going, “Well great, now what do I do?” Although not quite on the same par as raising thousands of dollars for disadvantaged children, you could design the poster for Josh Groban’s Fall 2013 “In The Round” tour. From October through mid-November, Groban will travel to places across North America on this unique tour. During the tour, Groban will be performing from a stage in the middle of the seats, which will be arranged in a circle around him, so he can interact with audience members no matter where they’re sitting.
Use Groban’s music to inspire an imaginative poster design, which will be printed and signed by Josh Groban himself for both the grand prize winner and the person with the highest voted submission. The winning submission will also receive a Josh Groban merchandise pack and exposure across Groban’s social media channels. Your poster can use any aspect of Groban’s music, from his most famous song “Raise Me Up,” to his cover of the Paul Simon song “America.” Check out this clip of Groban performing “America” at his 2004 “Live at the Greek” concert.
