Melodic Mondays: You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban

I’m really not sure how I didn’t know about this guy (he’s won four multi-platinums and sold a quarter billion records), but I didn’t really know who he was until about a week ago when this song played at my church. I’d heard it before, but didn’t realize he was the original artist, and the only other time I’d heard his name was when I looked up a song from The Polar Express and realized he’d sung that. Why I didn’t go searching for more of his brilliance then, I do not know. Please forgive my lapse in judgment.

Not only is this a very relatable and uplifting song if you’re a Christian, the cadence and flow of the music is just plain beautiful. I love the instrument at the beginning (is that a violin? Please help me, anyone who’s musically inclined), and Mr. Groban’s voice flows perfectly with the music. Seriously, check it out. It’s wonderful for writing and even everyday life.



So what’d you think of the song? Had you heard of Josh Groban before now? Got any favorites by him (or anyone else) to share with me? See you in the comments!

  2. Being an agnostic (commonly called a fence-sitter) I believe any god exists in music like this or in my garden. I can't deny these two stir the spiritual in me.
