Josh Groban took part in a special “An Evening with Josh Groban” event held at The Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles, raising funds for his alma mater, the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA), and his Find Your Light Foundation. Over half a million dollars was raised at the sold-out event which found the singer/songwriter performing alongside LACHSA students on “February Song,” “Lullaby,” “Weeping,” “You Raise Me Up,” and “Machine.”

“I am thrilled that we were able to raise over half a million dollars to support LACHSA and Find Your Light,” stated Groban. “It feels great to be able to give back to the school that gave me the foundation to explore my craft and support me while I was finding my feet as a performer. I want to thank everyone at LACHSA and those who attended the concert for enabling me to offer that same support to the students and future artists. It was truly a great night.”

Groban established the Find Your Light Foundation in 2011 as a way to enrich the lives of young people through arts, education, and cultural awareness. Groban’s personal experience and his belief that early exposure to the arts helps shape young people’s lives, combined with the sobering reality that such programs are on the chopping block at many educational institutions, has made him more attuned than ever to the need to focus his efforts on helping students find their light.
