Josh Groban Addresses His Kelly Clarkson Duet For Showtunes Album 'Stages' [Video]


Josh Groban Kelly Clarkson

Josh Groban goes back to what he knows best on his latest album 'Stages'; a collection of re-hashed mesmerising showtunes from all the best musicals, and on which he also got the chance to team up with three-time Grammy award winner Kelly Clarkson.

Groban is joined by Clarkson on track five 'All I Ask Of You'; a song famously sung by the characters Christine, Raoul and the Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'The Phantom Of The Opera'. It has to be said, this new version is rather remarkable, with Clarkson's almost unrecognisable pipes rivalling those of even its most famous singer Sarah Brightman.

Mumford & Sons Score Second U.S. Chart Topping Album


Mumford And Sons Josh Groban Zac Brown Band Taylor Swift Sam Smith Ed Sheeran

As was widely expected, folk-turned-rock group Mumford & Sons have raced to the top of the American Billboard charts, selling nearly 150% more than its nearest rival in the process. Wilder Mind, their third album, sold 249,000 copies in its first week to claim the Number 1 spot, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The figure isn’t anywhere near as large as the first week sales for their last record Babel, which shifted a whopping 600,000 units back in 2012, and remains the biggest sales week for a guitar album this decade.

Poverty Challenge For Ben Affleck As Argo Actor Pledges To Live On $1.50 Per Day


Ben Affleck Josh Groban

For five days next week, the Oscar-winning actor and director Ben Affleck will be living on $1.50 per day, in a bid to help raise awareness over global poverty issues. The Good Will Hunting star has signed up to the Live Below The Line appeal, which describes itself as a “a campaign that’s challenging the way people in the U.S. think about poverty — and making a huge difference,” Time magazine reports.

Affleck isn’t the only big name celebrity to take part in the challenge though; singer Josh Groban is taking part, as is the actress Sophia Bush and the celebrity chefs Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos. The World Bank has estimated that 1.4 billion people on the planet live below the extreme poverty line, which is estimated to be the equivalent of around $1.50 per day in the United States.

Can Ben Affleck Really Live On $1.50 A Day?


Ben Affleck Josh Groban Tom Hiddleston

Oscar-winner Ben Affleck has announced he will live on just $1.50 a day as part of the Global Poverty Project's Live Below The Line campaign. The Argo director is following the lead of Hugh Jackman, who successfully lived on the same amount for the campaign in 2011, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Affleck - a long-time charity campaigner - took to Twitter to show his support. "1.4 billion people live on less than $1.50/day. I'm joining Live #BelowTheLine on behalf of @easterncongo. Will you?," he tweeted. The challenge is meant to "give a glimpse into the lives of 1.4 billion people who have no choice but to live below the line every day - and who have to make $1.50 cover a lot more than food," according to the organizaton's website.

Jonah Hill, Katie Couric and Justin Bieber's Scooter Braun also tweeted their support for the case, while musician Josh Groban has raised $4,700 so far after commitment to spending just $1.50 per day on food and drink. "In today's world, extreme poverty and inequality are unjustifiable and unfair. Live Below the Line demonstrates the problem in a concrete way, while raising money to address the problem." Thor: The Dark World actor Tom Hiddleston posted a video of himself on his fifth day of the challenge. The clip shows Tom in his kitchen with a simple baked potato for lunch. He also tweeted his meals throughout the challenge, which included boiled rice with vegetables, and an omelette with kidney beans. "Profoundly aware that to live truly #belowtheline I would have to forego many & various privileges....," he tweeted in April, adding, "To live truly #belowtheline I would have to surrender the roof over my head, gas, electricity, and clean, running water."
