For My Sunday Song #30, my wife chose “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban. This is the final selection of her 10 part series. Hard to believe it has already been 10 weeks. I guess that means I will have to start thinking of songs for the next 10 weeks.
Now back to the song, the song is off his second album ‘Closer’ and was released back in 2003. The song was #1 on the Adult Contemporary Chart and made it as high as #73 on the Billboard Hot 100. It even was nominated for a Grammy but didn’t win.
My wife was unable to write a post this week as she has been so busy preparing for my youngest daughter’s 10th birthday party and then to top it off my daughter got sick with the flu which we had to reschedule the party for another weekend. So I will write up the final song she chose and I am sorry as it won’t be as good as what she would say and it won’t even be about why she chose the song. It will be about her and my girls.
What an amazing and inspirational song. Josh Groban has such an amazing and powerful voice. This version of the song is so moving and when played at the right moment can bring you to tears like if it was played in some sort of video montage. Come to think of it I think I used it in a video I did for my wife for Mother’s Day one year. I am sure it made her cry as it probably did me as I was putting the pictures together for the video.
