Rollback: At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Groban sang “You Raise Me Up” a cappella for thousands of people on Facebook – from his shower.

The bigger picture: Groban told the Deseret News that he had done his best to perform virtually during the pandemic so he could bring people together.
- “I love making music because I love the way it touches people,” Groban said. “I love being able to tell stories and being able to feel less alone through those stories. When you take something like COVID – which beyond the horrible physical things that happen – I think even if you don’t don’t get, we all feel the sanity part of just feeling that disconnect.
- “We need to connect,” he continued. “And I think there’s a reappraisal of what art is doing in our lives to help us do that – especially right now. Music can play a really wonderful role in staying sane through everything. that.
