To my inspiring fans, friends and the great people of Japan,

I join the chorus of voices who have shared their grief over what has happened. Your country is one that I had dreamed of visiting since I was very young and through the music I have been lucky enough to share with you, and the ever growing group of friends and supporters I feel honored to call mine, it has been a place of truly wonderful moments that live forever in my heart. As I watch this place cope with the ongoing trials of this unfathomable tragedy, I can only show all the support I can from a painfully long way away. I write this to tell you I am thinking of you and sending so much love. I’m also writing this to pledge that I, along with so many other friends and colleagues, will do everything I can to spread the word about how to help so we can truly do all we can.

To end on a hopeful note, I just returned from Tokyo only one month ago. It was one of the most fun experiences I have had performing live and it was amazing to reconnect with all of you who have been there for my whole career. I promised then as I do now, that I will be back very soon. What is happening around Japan now to rebuild and reconnect as a nation only serves as an even greater calling to come back soon, not to mourn as we should now, but to celebrate the future and the wonderful connection music allows us to have with each other.

In my thoughts every day until we meet again,

Josh Groban
