How Josh Groban’s Inspirational New Song ‘River’ May Help You Find Light During Your Darkest Hour
Grammy Award-winning singer Josh Groban has inspired many with his angelic voice and uplifting and inspirational songs, such as “You Raise Me Up.” Well, he’s at it again with his new song and music video for “River,” which tackles depression, addiction, and anxiety.
Many suffer from these grueling and life-altering conditions, and tragically too many lives have been lost to suicide. We’ve see this in the public eye with Anthony Bourdain, Chris Cornell and Robin Williams, among many others. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Groban explained that his inspiration for “River” was finding the light during one’s darkest hour.
“Whenever we have dark times in our lives, whether we suffer from depression, or addiction, or anxiety, or even just having a really bad day, the worst is that it feels like we are suffering alone…,” he said. “Far too many people feel this way… I hope this song and video are a reminder that it’s the simple steps, the smallest gestures, that can pull us back to the light. It’s those things for me. Find your ‘river.'”
