What is Josh Groban's net worth? How to live stream singer's performance at Major Biden's 'Indoguration'
Singer Josh Groban performed a remix of the popular '50s track '(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?' by Patti Page during the Delaware Humane Association's "Indoguration" party in honor of Joe Biden's rescue dog Major. Instead of the song's lyrics which go, "how much is that doggie in the window?" Groban spun the lyrics of the song and honored Major by singing: "I'm adopting that doggie in the window." Here's everything you need to know about the 39-year-old singer and how much money he's worth.
"It is a great privilege to be here on this first Indoguration. Congratulations to Major Biden, the first dog-elect who will soon be entering the White House. Many animals have been in the White House but Major Biden will be the first rescue dog in the White House, which is why we're here. It's an incredible thing," Groban said via Zoom before his performance.
"Please rescue animals. There are so many animals out there in desperate need of homes and you will not regret one moment with the animal you brought into your life and your home. Thank you to the Delaware Humane Society, thank you to the Humane Society in general who are doing God's work for such incredible work to maintain that message and make sure we eliminate as often as we can the cruelty to animals and to make sure animals get the love and attention and homes they deserve all across the country," the Grammy nominee shared.
The virtual event was in the honor of Biden's rescue dog, Major. It was hosted by DHA and Pumpkin Pet Insurance, and Jill Martin emceed the performance. The event's main aim was to celebrate Major and help other pets find forever homes. The "Indoguration" also aimed to set a record for "the largest virtual gathering of dogs". You can rewatch the performance here, while donating some amount to Major's rescue shelter, Delaware Humane Association.
He posted on Instagram, "IT CAME TRUE!! I am so happy. The world is a mess, but we can all agree dogs rule. Let’s celebrate Major’s Indoguration and raise $$ for his rescue shelter, Delaware Humane Association. Today at 3pm EST! All donations go to Major’s shelter, DHA. Zoom tickets have sold out but you can still watch the show on YouTube (link in my stories!) and donate to DHA using the link in the YouTube video description. See you there!"
Born on February 27, 1981, as Joshua Winslow Groban, he originally completed his studies in acting, but later moved to singing. Groban did his schooling at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, a free public school on the campus of California State University, Los Angeles, where students get a conservatory-style education. David Foster called Groban to stand-in for an ailing Andrea Bocelli to rehearse a duet, 'The Prayer', with Celine Dion at the rehearsal for the 1998 Grammy Awards. Rosie O'Donnell immediately invited him to appear on her talk show. Foster asked him to sing at the California Governor's Gray Davis' 1999 inauguration. He was also seen on 'Ally McBeal' by the show's creator, David E Kelley, performing 'You're Still You' for the 2001 Season 4 finale.
Since his 2001 debut, everything about vocalist and actor Groban has been an evolution. The high baritone and four multi-platinum albums moved from covering songwriters’ operatic pop and theater songs to penning his own more intimate, urbane songs. His songs are written by Joni Mitchell and Kenny Loggins on his recent release 'Harmony'. He has also had several performances in Broadway. In 2017, he debuted in 'Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812', for which he won a Tony nomination for best actor in a musical. He also worked in the 2018 Netflix movie 'The Good Cop'. Groban has also been on a “virtual concert tour” of interactive live-streamed events, with tickets on sale at JoshGroban.com/Livestream. His net worth reportedly stands at $32.2M.
