Who isn't a Kelly Clarkson fan? Here's our take on her latest album.

If musical theater — and Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory — is your thing, then you’re in for a delight with Josh Groban‘s upcoming album Stages (out April 28). The 31-year-old singer continues to expand his catalog by tackling some of the Great White Way and West End’s classic tracks like “What I Did For Love” from A Chorus Line, “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel and “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables.

As for guests on the LP, Kelly Clarkson features on “All I Ask Of You” (from Phantom Of The Opera), while Chris Botti appears on “Old Devil Moon” (Finian’s Rainbow) and Audra McDonald lends her voice to “If I Loved You” (Carousel).

“Nothing has inspired me more in my life than the energy that is shared in a theater when great songs and great art are on the stage,” Groban says in a press release. “I wanted this album to pay tribute to those inspirations and memories.”
