Might make a nice lullaby to rock a baby to sleep with under the stars. Charles River in Boston to celebrate Americas birthday, while another seven milliontune in nationally toview the event during alive one-hour primetimespecial. Stephanie Meyers books spur mother-daughter bonding as does Josh Grobans music. The Fourth of July means patriotic flag waving, barbecues and fireworks. Groban went on to perform "There For Me" with Sarah Brightman on her 2000-2001 La Luna Tour, and made his recording debut by singing "For Always" with Lara Fabian on the movie soundtrack to A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001).
