It must feel like a dream to sing on stage and in front of everyone you love. Just imagine your all-time favorite singer pulls you to stage and asks you to perform a number with them. That’s one experience you’ll cherish for the rest of your life, for sure! Well, for this bright star, that dream became a reality when she got to sing alongside one of the world’s biggest vocal stars.
Jen Malenke may not have the fame that Josh Groban yet, but with her talent, stage presence, and natural charisma, she’s making a name for herself. Jen got to sing a duet of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” with none other than Josh Groban. The result was a magical performance that the audience will never forget.
Josh Groban is an artist that needs no introduction. His incredible voice has managed to sell over 22 million records around the world, including four certified multi-platinum albums. He’s also an accomplished actor on television and on stage, with a number of awards and nominations under his name. With all that said, there’s just no doubt Josh is a star in his own right.
Some of Josh’s most popular tracks include “To Where You Are”, “You Raise Me Up”, and “The Prayer” — a song performed alongside Celine Dion. It’s easy to see the versatility in Josh’s voice. Not only does he sing ballads well, but he can also hold his own while singing alongside powerhouse performers.
You can imagine how Jen Malenke must’ve felt when she was asked to perform a duet with Josh Groban. A bit of those nerves were showing when Jen entered the stage. Josh put her at ease by thanking her for working with him. And in a rather sweet moment, Jen shyly thanked her family for coming to see the show. She particularly pointed out her father, who was watching from the audience with a huge smile on his face.
When it came time to sing, all of Jen’s nerves seemed to have floated away. She confidently sang the first verse of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water”. Jen hit all the right notes. And when Josh jumped in to sing with her, it was like watching a scene straight out of a movie.
The whole audience was at the feet by the end of the performance, moving Jen to tears. Josh also couldn’t help but shower her with praises, calling the song number “Jen’s moment”.
Talk about a magical number! We hope to see more of Jen Malenke and of course, the amazing Josh Groban. In the meantime, enjoy this lovely duet.
