If there is one who brings crooners back to life, it is Michael Bublé. In his impeccable three-piece suit, he sweeps away the history of charming singers and imposes his own version of it. With a touch of humor and by combining jazzy sounds with a well-meaning pop, he delivers a resolutely modern story, in the tradition of Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin.
But his favourite artist, the one who opened his eyes to music remains Bing Crosby. From this idol, he draws his incredible sense of harmony, his musicality at the limit of perfection and above all, the sensitivity that overflows like a torrent, overwhelming his audience with emotions from the very first chords. For him, it's obvious: the music of the past always has a lot to teach us. Because even today, it is still in all our memories. And when he reprises it in a sumptuous Feeling Good version, we can't help but agree with him, instantly thinking back to Nina Simone's grandiose interpretation of it.
And it is another great artist, much appreciated by the public, who took him under her wing. His compatriot and now friend, Paul Anka. "He teaches me patience and humility. Talking to him soothes me a lot," explains the singer. A welcome help for someone who has gone through many personal trials in recent years, and who doesn't always see fame as something positive. Because behind this outstanding performer, who doesn't hesitate for a second to regale his audience with a few old-fashioned dance steps in concert, there is actually a great shyness behind him. And if he has sometimes thought of bowing out, his passion is too strong: he loves the song far too much to leave it. And so much the better!
Michael Bublé had already produced three independent albums without getting discouraged when he was finally spotted by the legendary Paul Anka. The latter takes him under his wing and decides to finance his first album in 2003. But it is with his second opus that he reaches the top of the charts. It's Time is a huge success, ranking number 1 on the Canadian Billboard charts and achieving very good results all over the world. By covering standards such as You Don't Know Me or Feeling Good, mixed with original songs, including the hit Home, the artist reveals himself as the crooner of modern times.
Call Me Irresponsible (2007) and Crazy Love (2009) confirm Michael Bublé's talent, his ability to produce sumptuous covers as well as great pop hits. Among them, the French public will undoubtedly recognize the famous Haven't Met You Yet, which serves as a theme song for Love is in the Meadow. His success led him to carry the flame of the Vancouver Olympic Games in 2010 and to close the edition alongside other artists. He will perform a version of Maple Leaf Forever, adding a touch of humour when he loses his Canadian Constable's suit to unveil a flawless white suit.
In 2016, the singer announced a break in his career for family reasons. There were rumors that he would never set foot on the stage again. But once he overcame his personal trials, the artist shows that he still has the same desire with the very good album Love whose title is just an emoji representing a heart. A romantic blockbuster whose first single, When I Fall in Love, popularized by Nat King Cole himself, sets the tone!
For those nostalgic for the great crooners who have both feet firmly anchored in the present, Michael Bublé's show is grandiose. The mix is perfect between great jazz classics and original songs more exciting. His stage play is superb and the musicians are at the top!
Michael Bublé is one of those very endearing singers, whose sincerity and authenticity can be felt through each interpretation. With him, everything is perfect. From the orchestra that accompanies him to his impeccable swing. A true singer of charm, in short, who glides over the notes with disconcerting ease while producing shows as only artists from the other side of the Atlantic know how to do.
This Canadian, discovered about ten years ago, has established himself as one of the most popular singers of the moment. He is perhaps the friendliest and warmest man in the business. This great teenager has climbed to the top of the sales and recognition charts in just a short decade, thanks to his hard work.
