The audience at the Madison Square Gardens received a special treat from Josh Graban. The beautiful rendition of the song "Bridge over Troubled Water" by the singer, held the audience spellbound.


Josh Graban was the toast of the Madison Square Gardens after his live performance of the 1970s classic tune. The song was made popular by its original singers, American music duo, Simon and Garfunkel.


The song after its release became the duo’s biggest hit, and many iconic musicians have done their versions of the song. Josh added his name to that list with his captivating performance of the classic.

When he announced that he would be performing the song, he received a loud cheer from the audience, and as he began to play the piano and sing the lines of the song, his vocals added a unique feel to the song that left them spellbound.

The singer wasn’t alone during his performance as he was supported by a cast of backup singers whose varying blend of voices added a choir-like feel to the song. That in itself is not surprising.

The famous song has lyrics that are well composed and convey a gospel meaning. The song became Simon and Garfunkel’s biggest hit and soon topped charts, remaining number one for many weeks.
