Who is Michael Bublé?

Michael Bublé is a prominent Canadian singer, songwriter and actor. This young and energetic singer had set his eyes on the world of jazz since childhood. With great jazz legends like Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney and Ella Fitzgerald being his inspirations, Michael Bublé followed their footsteps and became a successful classic jazz and soul singer. This Canada-born Grammy-winning singer has won the hearts of a million fans worldwide through his soothing voice and unique style. He credits his ever increasing-fame to his grandfather, who opened him up to the world of music and brought him numerous opportunities to showcase his talent to various artists and celebrities, thereby shaping his career and future. It was through his granddad’s collection of records of jazz and soul music that inspired him to take up singing seriously and become a vocalist at such a tender age, something that musicians struggle for years to achieve. His moving and expressive voice went on to break several records on Canadian, American, Australian, and European album charts, with every new studio album. Apart from being a jazz vocalist, he has ventured into acting and songwriting as well, besides taking up several television projects. This singing sensation has won a number of Canadian and international awards for his songs.

Childhood & Early Life

Michael Steven Bublé was born on September 9, 1975 in Burnaby city, British Columbia, as the eldest of the three kids, to salmon fisherman Lewis Bublé and Amber.

Since his father was always at the sea fishing, he was brought up by his mother and Italian grandfather, Demetrio Santaga, who introduced him to the world of music and played a major role in shaping up his singing career.

He completed his education from Seaforth Elementary School and Cariboo Hill Secondary School.

His talent was noticed by his family during Christmas, when he was 13, while performing on Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’, after which he took singing classes for vocal training. He first performed on-stage at 16 at a nightclub.

In order to let the young Bublé perform on-stage with local musicians and showcase his talent, his grandfather would offer free plumbing services at clubs.

He participated and won a local talent contest, but was later disqualified since he was underage. However, the organizer, impressed by his talent, suggested him to participate in the Canadian Youth Talent Search, which he won subsequently.

Career

He began his singing career with Elvis’s role in the musical ‘Red Rock Diner’, in Vancouver, in 1996. Here, he met singer and dancer, Debbie Timuss, with whom he shifted to Toronto in 1998 and performed in the musical ‘Forever Swing’.

He debuted on national television, in 1997, with the award-winning ‘Bravo!’ documentary ‘Bid Band Boom!’

His major break came in 2000 when he was noticed by Michael McSweeney, advisor to former Canadian Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney, who circulated the young aspirant’s albums.

Impressed with his talent, the Prime Minister and his wife invited him to perform at their daughter’s wedding, who then introduced him to Grammy-winning producer and Warner Brothers music executive, David Foster.

He debuted on the silver screen with ‘Duets’ (2000) starring along with Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis, followed by the airhead comedy ‘Totally Blonde’ (2001) and ‘The Snow Walker’ (2003).

Initially hesitant, David Foster agreed to sign him to his ‘143 Records’ label and he released his debut album ‘Michael Bublé’ in February 2003, which became a worldwide hit topping the Australian, UK and Canadian music charts.

In early 2004, he released his first live DVD ‘Come Fly With Me’, followed by a two-disc Christmas set of tracks from his previous albums and second DVD ‘Caught In The Act’ (2005).

His second studio album ‘It’s Time’ (2005) surpassed his previous album records, selling over five million copies worldwide.

His third studio album ‘Call Me Irresponsible’ (2007), which reached number one at the US and Australian music charts, was judged as the year’s bestselling album.

His third DVD ‘Michael Bublé Meets Madison Square Garden’, as a collection of his most significant performances, was out in June 2009.

His fourth studio album ‘Crazy Love’, released in October 2009, topped the Billboard’s Canadian Adult Contemporary chart and became Australia’s fastest selling album.

He appeared as a celebrity mentor in series 6 of ‘The X Factor’ show on ITV network, in the UK.

He participated in the torch relay of 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games ahead of the opening ceremony and performed at the closing ceremony on a modern version of the song ‘Maple Leaf Forever’, with other Canadian stars.

His fifth studio album ‘Christmas’, released in October 2011, topped both the US and the UK charts.

His latest studio album ‘To be Loved’ (April 2013) opened at number one on Billboard 200, and became the fourth consecutive album to top the chart.

Major Works

His album ‘Call Me Irresponsible’ (2007) reached number one within a week at Billboard 200, a feat which was accomplished by only a few singing legends - Michael Jackson and Sugarland.

A Starbucks Frappucino commercial launched in 2005, featuring Bublé singing ‘Come Fly With Me’, was released in the Starbucks edition of ‘It’s Time’.

During his ‘Crazy Love’ Dublin tour, his performance at the Aviva Stadium saw a record-holding 51,700 spectators, his largest ever audience, with all his show tickets sold out in just one day.

Awards & Achievements

In 2004, he won the ‘New Artist of the Year’ award at the Juno Awards for his self-titled debut album.

In April 2010, he was honored with four Juno Awards – Juno Fan Choice Award, Single of the Year (‘Haven’t Met You Yet’), Album of the Year (‘Crazy Love’), and Pop Album of the Year (‘Crazy Love’).

He was awarded with three Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards – Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (‘It’s Time’), and Best Original Composition (‘Home’), in 2006.

In 2006, he was bestowed upon with four Juno Awards – Best Single of the Year (‘Home’), Best Album of the Year (‘It’s Time’), Best Artist of the Year, and Best Pop Album of the Year (‘It’s Time’).

His album, ‘Christmas’ became the first holiday album to win the Juno Award for Album of the Year, in 2012.

He won Grammy Awards in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category for his albums ‘Call me Irresponsible’, ‘Michael Bublé Meets Madison Square Garden’, ‘Crazy Love’, and ‘To Be Loved’.

Personal Life & Legacy

He broke off his engagement with ‘Red Rock Diner’ fellow performer Debbie Timuss in November 2005 and soon after, got into a new relationship with British actress Emily Blunt. However, the couple parted ways in July 2008.

He dated Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato, whom he got engaged with in November 2009 and later married in March 2011 in Buenos Aires. Their son, Noah Bublé, was born in 2013.

Trivia

He often ends his concert by singing without a microphone, a habit that began during one of his Los Angeles shows where his microphone went out and he brought down the house with an acoustic version of ‘My Funny Valentine’.

His single ‘Home’ from his studio album ‘It’s Time’ holds the record for being the most heard song on Canadian radio in 2005, with over 382 million listeners to its credit.
