Pop and classical singer Josh Groban has listed his gated house in Malibu at $5.475 million. The crooner put the Tuscan-inspired home up for lease a few years ago at $23,000 a month after it failed to sell at $6.1 million. Perhaps this time around it will hit all the right notes with a buyer. A long brick driveway leads to the multi-level house, which was built in 1976 and sits on 1.8 acres. The mountain-view property includes the main house, a guesthouse, a swimming pool and spa with a waterfall, a lighted tennis court and an outdoor fireplace.

It was a chocolate and Champagne sort of night at the Hollywood Bowl. The festive mood at Friday's season-opening concert proved extra-conducive for enjoying those consumables from one's picnic basket, while, in a more fanciful sense, those flavors wafted on the air as cocoa-voiced Josh Groban and effervescent soprano Kiri Te Kanawa performed separate sets as new inductees into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame. As a double bill, these talents might have seemed an odd combination -- the 28-year-old boy-man who sends his female fan base swooning with a repertoire that is a bit pop, a bit classical and a bit world music, yet not really any of them, and the celebrated, ever-radiant 65-year-old opera star who's gone largely missing for more than a decade now. Yet diversity is one of the qualities embraced by the Hall of Fame, which showcases performers who "embody the spirit of the Bowl," as Thomas Wilkins, the evening's conductor and genial emcee, explained.
