Josh Groban And Helene Fischer’s Powerhouse Cover Of ‘I’ll Stand By You’

In 2020, Josh Groban released his ninth studio album, Harmony. This album was a unique release for the singer-songwriter, as it focused less on original songs by the artist and more on covers by iconic musicians who had come before him. On this album, Josh Groban proved his talent for approaching songs from many different genres and meeting them with his own unique style. Covering songs by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Bonnie Raitt, the artist proved his musical range.

For one of these covers, he joined forces with vocal powerhouse Helene Fischer to sing ‘I’ll Stand By You’ on the deluxe version of the album. While the original version of the song was a ballad performed by the rock band The Pretenders, Josh and Helene brought their own style to the song. Turning the song into a gentle piano ballad that grew into a swell of full-bodied sound, the duo turned the song into a triumphant celebration of standing together through hard times.

The online video of their duet has reached over 5.5M views, with fans of both singers flocking to see them join forces. Viewers flooded the comments with praise for the duo, as individual talents and as a pair. For one viewer, their cover of ‘I’ll Stand By You’ was simply not enough, as they shared, “I could do with a whole album of love duets with Josh and Helene.” While Helene did not appear for another duet on the album, Josh did team up with other singers to cover more classic hits.

One of these hits was the song ‘Both Sides Now’ by Joni Mitchell, which Josh Groban teamed up with Sara Bareilles to sing. Once again, bringing their own unique style to their interpretation, the pair took the fragile folk song and turned it into a powerhouse duet, complete with swooning string orchestration. To give fans an inside look at the creation of the song, Josh posted a behind-the-scenes video of the song’s recording as the singers entered the studio to lay down their vocals.

After the release of Harmony, Josh took his vocal talent back to Broadway, musical theatre being one of the pursuits in which he is well known to excel. It was to no musical theatre fan’s surprise that he was nominated for a Tony Award in 2023 for his performance in Sweeney Todd. However, his studio work on Harmony has proved that Josh Groban can bring his smooth and stirring vocals to any genre he chooses, coming into his element as he comes into harmony with another great artist.
