Some weeks ago, Josh Groban decided to release his own rendition of the song, which has been receiving enthusiastic reviews.

It was in one of his concerts in Madison Square Garden when Josh Groban introduced his performance of the celebrated hit.

But it was his version of ”Bridge Over Troubled Water” that prompted an eager response from the crowd.

He first started playing on the piano by himself and singing the first lines of the classic song, but giving a unique spin to it with his captivating vocals.

Singing unaccompanied during the first minutes of his performance, Josh Groban made the song more beautiful than ever.

But after a few minutes, this talented man was joined by backup singers.

Through a perfect blend of voices coupled with the right instruments, they added and an atmospheric choir-esque feel to the gospel-influenced song.

All in all, this resulted in an impressive rendition of this timeless masterpiece – one that would surely merit approval of Simon & Garfunkel themselves!

Such a powerful voice – one of a kind!

The raw power to the gentle tenderness at the end is just stunning.  

We love everything you do, Josh. Your music fills my house often and for many occasions, you helped me feel much better hearing this today.
