Just last week, the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra (FSYO) in Orlando announced its recent donation from multi-platinum singer-songwriter Josh Groban’s Find Your Light Foundation. FSYO is one of just 30 arts education nonprofit organizations selected for the honor. The Find Your Light Foundation is dedicated to enriching the lives of young people through arts, education and cultural awareness.

“Ensuring every child has the opportunity to experience an arts education is very important to me,” said Groban said in a press release about the donation. “FSYO shares this goal…and it gives me great pleasure to highlight the work they do.”

Groban was in Orlando at The Amway Arena to perform on last month as part of his “Straight To You” worldwide tour running through November. The tour supports his recent and fifth studio album, ‘Illuminations.’ The album has already been certified platinum in the U.S. Its No. 4 debut on Billboard’s Top 200 chart is Groban’s fourth consecutive Top 5 chart bow.
