Here is a story that is sweet, beautiful and inspiring.
Jen Malenke was a music teacher, struggling to make ends meet.
Her mother had died from the effects of an automobile accident. Then her brother found that he needed a kidney transplant. Jen gave him one of hers.
Jen had aspired to begin a singing career before her personal challenges within her family redirected her focus.
Josh Groban became aware of this and decided to coach Jen. She was quite nervous in her rehearsals. She lacked self - confidence and was in awe of Josh Groban.
After a very brief period of time and with very short notice, Josh invited Jen to perform with him on stage. Jen's name was on the marquee, along with Josh's.
Could she handle the moment? Her brother, father, her music students, close friends and a huge audience were about to find out.
Here is that performance.
After the performance with Josh Groban, she has established a successful musical and acting career.
This beautiful lady is shown below.
She had what it takes. She only needed a mentor to inject her with the necessary self belief to make it happen.
A lesson for us all.
