I had no idea Kelly could sing this high. Her range is unbelievable.

A voice with depth like no other, that’s Josh Groban.

Some describe him as a tenor while others describe him as a baritone.

Either way, Josh Groban is one of those few music geniuses out there who possesses that deep and dense voice.

Groban’s vocal prowess is characterized by its rich, resonant tones and remarkable versatility.

It’s rare to see an artist who can effortlessly traverse from a wide range of velvety smooth lows to soaring up to operatic highs.


This 42-year-old California-born singer has a voice that exudes an innate warmth and sincerity. He is beyond capable of evoking profound emotions with his voice’s clarity, control, and expressiveness.

His ability to infuse each note with passion and nuance lends an enchanting quality to his performances, leaving an indelible impression on all who experience his music. In this regard, he’s not alone.

His match may be the first-ever American Idol “O.G.”, Kelly Clarkson.

Back in 2002, Clarkson bagged the grand prize of the prestigious reality talent show.

Following her success, Clarkson a record deal with RCA Records and then released her debut single, “A Moment Like This.”

The song became a huge hit that it topped the US Billboard Hot 100 in 2002.


This song sky-rocketed straight to cloud nine and became the best-selling single in the United States for that year.

Included in her first studio album, “Thankful” (2003), the song’s success was accompanied by the hit “Miss Independent,” which secured a spot in the top 10.

Clarkson is now 41 years old and is the main host of her very own show “The Kelly Clarkson Show” which is now on its fifth season.

Now, what would happen if these two duets for a holiday special treat?

Say no more because Groban and Clarkson already did this back in 2017 on the CBS special called “A Home For The Holidays.”


Josh Groban’s enthralling moment unfolded during the ‘Stages Live’ event.

It was a PBS special spotlighting iconic tunes from musical theater, including a standout from ‘Phantom of the Opera.’

His ardor for the stage inspired the creation of ‘Stages,’ an album compiling Broadway’s finest hits.

He shared on his website, “Theater and musical theater have always held a special place in my heart. These were songs I longed to sing since my high school days.”

Nestled among the tracks on ‘Stages’ was the exquisite “All I Ask of You” from ‘Phantom of the Opera.’


But Josh knew all along he couldn’t tackle it alone.

Soon, the anticipation buzzed inside the venue when the Stages Live event was finally announced.

Fans eagerly anticipated witnessing their beloved Broadway melodies brought to life by none other than Josh Groban.

During the show, he revealed to the audience, “When we were making this record and I was going to record this song, I knew that this duet had to be recorded in a very, very special way. And, it had to be recorded with a very special singer.”


The “very special singer” he was referring to was none other than Kelly Clarkson.

A fascinating tidbit: ‘Phantom of the Opera’ marked Clarkson’s maiden musical theater experience, adding a profound sentiment to the performance.

The poignant “All I Ask of You” was a duet between the characters Raoul and Christine Daaé.

Kelly candidly confessed her lifelong dream of portraying Christine, a dream that Josh, with his collaboration, helped her fulfill.


As the instrumental intro faded, the room filled with Josh’s resonant voice singing, “No more talk of darkness – Forget these wide-eyed fears. I’m here, nothing can harm you. My words will warm and calm you…”

Within moments, it became apparent why Josh held sway over the crowd and viewers alike.


Time for Clarkson to belt out her parts of the duet.

Her voice soared, sending shivers down the spines of everyone present.

Her natural aptitude for musical theater was unmistakable.

Their chemistry electrified the atmosphere, reaching a crescendo as their voices intertwined in a harmonious blend, leaving the audience breathless.


The internet showered adoration on this Broadway duet, amassing over three million views on YouTube alone.

Reflecting on the experience, Josh shared with Billboard, “Whenever you can take a classic song that everybody knows and add a nice surprise to it, that’s always the best thing. You give people what they weren’t expecting.”
