He was offered a record contract by Creator/WarnerBrosRecords after the inaguration, and WB's PR team hatched a plan to promote him as a boy band-type singer. Groban decided to decline the contract after WB had him do a series of fairly embarrassing photos for promotional purposes; Foster then backed the teenage Groban up, giving him a contract with his own division of WB records, 143 Records. His debut was redone as a mix of pop and opera, a formula that has given him platinum records ever since. His last two albums, "Illuminations" and "All That Echoes" have departed from the Classical/Singing-in-Romance-Languages style of his previous albums, moving into pop, folk, Americana, as well as other genres.
