This is what it’s all about!! So proud of the work we’re doing at @fylfoundation to help other great organizations light up kids lives with the arts. This was their response to a grant we gave to Jacques D’Amboise’ extraordinary @nationaldanceinstitute !! With your help, we will continue to grow and make sure every young person in America is given the gift of arts education.

#neverforget #Repost @timeoutnewyork with @get_repost ・・・ Today marks the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks and, as in past years, the annual installation Tribute in Light will once again appear over Lower Manhattan to honor the legacy of those lost in the largest U.S. terrorist attack to date. The Tribute in Light, produced by the Municipal Art Society of New York, first debuted in March 2002 just six months after the attacks of Sept 11th. Originally set up in a vacant lot across from Ground Zero, the public art installation is now assembled on the roof of the Battery Parking Garage south of the 9/11 Memorial site. Look out for the illuminating beams, set to appear from dusk today until dawn on Sept 12. While the city holds the official memorial service every year at Memorial Plaza, this glowing tribute has become an iconic symbol for those everywhere to reflect and remember the victims of the attacks. On a clear enough night, the beams which consist of eighty-eight 7,000-watt light bulbs can be seen up to four miles into the sky and from a 60-mile radius. For optimal views, go to Washington Square and Union Square parks in Manhattan, Gantry Plaza State Park in Queens, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. The beams can also be seen as far east as Suffolk County in Long Island and as far south as Trenton, New Jersey. (📷: Shutterstock )
A quick visit with grandma and grandpa before the muppet returns to his home, the sea.
Amazing moment for @tariqhakoni coming up...read below. Hope to see you all at SB Bowl as well for a special night. One of the most beautiful spots as we come to a close on this year long Bridges Tour. More thoughts on that later. 💚 #Repost @tariqhakoni ・・・ So..... I grew up in Santa Barbara California. Went to school at San Marcos and studied music at Santa Barbara City College. I was a camp counselor at the YMCA as well as a lifeguard. It is my home. After over 25 years as a professional musician, playing all over the world, I am playing the Santa Barbara Bowl for the very first time. I can’t articulate how excited and proud I am to bring this tour to my friends and family in SB. .... CAN NOT WAIT!!! #sbcountybowl #redwagonmusic #sbindependent #havefunanddogoodthangs #MrRoadweary
Wowza. What a damn near perfect place to sing. See you tonight and Tuesday, Saratoga. @mountainwinery
Boise was the first city I ever played back in 2004. You never forget those first nerves, or the first feeling of acceptance from a crowd. All these years and many returns later, to look out on so many people as the sun was setting on a gorgeous hot night...it hits me again how lucky I am. #bridgessummertour 📷: @lysi_
This has always been a special place for me. I love the natural beauty, the elements becoming part of the show, and the love and welcoming of this truly awesome group of music loving fans. Thanks for another special memory, Red Rocks. #bridgessummertour 📷: @ajcan
My audition for the CATS movie got leaked.
Look at this child who didn’t know what to do with his hands on camera!! (Still doesn’t ). Always grateful to @therichardmarx and @ltlindathompson for this beautiful song that started it all. #Repost @therichardmarx with @get_repost ・・・ On this day in 2002, @joshgroban hit #1 on Billboard’s AC chart with his debut single, “To Where You Are.” Produced by me and written by my talented friend @ltlindathompson and me, it launched Josh’s remarkable career. Proud to have been a part of it.
Last night was a beautiful cloudy show for the books at @chateaustemichelle Can’t wait for round two tonight!!
#Repost @sarabareilles with @get_repost ・・・ IT IS AN EMERGENCY!!!!🚨 🚨 🚨 Here’s what we CAN do: ・・・ #Regram #RG @rainforestalliance : The lungs of the Earth are in flames. 🔥 The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil ). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January. The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check. The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do? ✔ As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest. ✔ Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. ✔ Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers. ✔ Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains. Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation. ✔ When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy. #RainforestAlliance #SaveTheAmazon #PrayForAmazonia #AmazonRainforest #ActOnClimate #ForestsResist #ClimateCrisis 📸: @mohsinkazmitakespictures / Windy.com
So embarrassed this backstage footage of me has leaked
Oregon sure is beautiful. Bend, you were great. Portland, you’re up next.
Entered my dressing room in Bend, Oregon to see my pal @murkanpianist left me a hard copy of his new brilliant book, A Dream About Lightning Bugs. I’ve already been adoring it on my iPad but I’m delighted to have this signed copy. I won’t ruin either of our careers by sharing what he wrote. Go get and read this beautiful book by one of my favorite beautiful minds!!! He’s a unicorn of a human.
Happy Birthday to my amazing dad, Jack “Smokey Lips” Groban. He can shuck an oyster, out wit the cleverest, and clear a spit valve with equal dexterity. He’s simply the best. Happy Birthday, Daddy-O.
Walking the line...
Love to El Paso and Dayton. Hope for a less tragic future.
This man is responsible for so many of us loving and living in the theater. The loss of a giant. So much gratitude for everything he gave us. RIP Hal Prince.
