The Grammy Award-winning pop opera superstar demonstrated that during his Miracle Weekend visit.

“You were one of my first interviews! I remember that very well,” said Groban, smiling warmly as he recalled coming here 12 years ago as a rising star to perform The Prayer at the Victoria Conference Centre for a David Foster Foundation fundraiser.

Foster’s then-scrawny and unassuming 19-year-old musical protégé had taken time out of a rehearsal to chat.

“You can only hope,” Groban said Saturday, recalling how he never assumed he’d also become an actor whose sense of humour and charisma has enchanted CNN’s Piers Morgan and Kelly Ripa on Live! with Kelly, and enhanced Jack Black’s...
