Groban first broke through in 2001 with his self-titled double-platinum debut album, followed by 2003's multi-platinum Closer, featuring the smash hit "You Raise Me Up," and 2006's double-platinum Awake. In 2007, Groban became the best-selling recording artist of the year thanks to sales of Awake and his Christmas album, Noel - the best-selling album of 2007. Groban ranks as Billboard's 14th top-selling artist of the 2000s with more than 20 million units sold in the U.S. alone and 25 sold million worldwide.
