How do you look back on your high school prom? Believe it or not, Josh Groban might have had the same awkward experience as you. Before selling 25 million albums and winning over the hearts of fans with his soothing voice, the operatic pop singer/songwriter summed up his prom in one musical note on “GMA LIVE!” this morning.
“Mine sucked,” Groban sang to laughs at the anchor desk.
It all started when social media producer, Andrew Springer, thanked Groban on behalf of all the girls in his 2005 high school class for helping celebrate their prom.
“You were our prom song,” Springer said. “They loved you so much.”
“Really?” Groban said surprised. “Thanks for the love.”
Groban kept our “GMA LIVE!” audience laughing as he bantered back and forth with anchors Sam Champion, Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer, discussing how he aspires to do a Broadway show one day, albeit not the part of Aladdin, which hits the Great White Way in Spring 2014.
“I actually moved to New York a couple years ago so I could be closer to the great Broadway theater here, and closer to the arts community,” said Groban. “I’ve always wanted to do that. It is one of my great dreams that I haven’t been able to dive in to yet.”
“Would you want to be in Aladdin?” Elliott asked.
“I don’t want to do that, though,” Groban joked. “The carpet, it chafes.”
