Finally got to use a Christmas gift . Josh was fantastic and very cute . If anyone has heard/seen him you know what I mean. He did 3 encores and was extremely pleased that he had filled US Airways Arena. He said this will be something he can tell his grand children. The last encore ,we kept waiting for him to come back and suddenly there was a big commotion at the other end of the arena and here he ran through the arena singing and grabbing every hand he could touch then he went on stage at either end and touched as many as he could reach. He had a Phoenix Suns shirt on and on the back it had GROBAN 07. Then he did You Raise Me Up ,which had me and my daughter in tears. He has such a great personality and his range is incredible. Anyone who knows about him or not if he is near you GO see this fantastic young talent. He was 26 a couple of weeks ago.
Another thing he talked about was going to Africa and he met Nelson Mandela. They were to go to a children's home and he said he was all set to be upset because it's in such a poor area but he got there and was so amazed at how these children did so much with barely anything. He was also talking about children of the world. There were about 3 or 4 little ones down in front and he sat down and signed autographs and people brought him gifts and he was so gracious. He spoke to the little kids first. He ask this one little girl her name and she told him and he said ,are you having fun and she goes ,huh??? Her Mom elbowed her a bit and he ask her again and she said oh yes. Fantastic young man and so talented.
Someone ask me if he was better than Vince and I said it would be ludicrous to compare because they do different things. Each is as great as the other in what they do ............however, I did say Vince was my favorite but I have wanted to see Josh for so long and man I'd go again in a heartbeat.
