Biography


Numerous musicians may have covered 'Silent Night', 'O Come All Ye Faithful' or 'I'll be Home for Christmas' but count on Josh Groban to compile a beautifully-arranged Christmas album. Could be the classic genre that he was hopped in or simply the attraction of his angel-like voice that made the album 'Noel' flying off the shelves at high rate. Despite being released near Halloween celebration, the seasonal album performed way better than expected. Upon its release on October 9, the compilation of Christmas classics went straight to no. 10 on Billboard Hot 200 before eventually moving up six places to no. 4. The following week, 'Noel' held strong to its Top 5 position by slipping only one place down despite a 2 per cent increase in sale. Nielsen SoundScan even reported that it was the number 1 selling album in Canada for the week ending October 14, 2007. As Christmas day drew nearer, 'Noel' sale went stronger that it sat at #1 for several consecutive weeks and wen on four times platinum in 11 weeks after its release.
