Singer and actor Michael Buble was born in British Columbia, Canada, on September 9, 1975. He was practically raised solely by his mother since his father, a fisherman, was at the sea all the time. By his teens, Michael had already gathered a considerable collection of records constituted mostly by jazz and soul performers that cultivated in him love for such music. Among the boy’s favorites were such stars as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder. Their singing ignited Michael’s own desire to train his voice, which he practiced almost entire free time. Michael’s family supported this initiative since they saw how gifted he was. After Buble took part in a young talent competition for the whole province and won beautifully, one of the organizers, Beverly Delich, decided to help him make his first step into the professional music career.
With Delich’s support, Michael released independently his debut long player. In 1996, he played Elvis in the music play Red Rock Diner staged in Vancouver. This role was the first one in the long row of the others he took in the years to come. The true breakthrough in Buble’s career came along after his performance at the Canadian Prime Minister’s daughter’s wedding. On that particular evening, he was spotted by the Grammy-winning producer David Foster. Backed by David, Michael signed a contract with the 143 Records label and started working on his first official release. Self-titled, this album arrived in 2003. The record topped the charts in Australia and became multiplatinum in a number of other countries. This studio work showed all the sides of Buble’s rich talent. What he was best at was performing classic compositions in the contemporary vein, which instantly made them international hits .
In 2004, Buble won the prestigious Canadian national Juno Awards as the Best New Artist. In a year, he delivered his sophomore long player, It's Time (2005). This album even outdid the achievements of its predecessor. The new record sold over five million copies worldwide and held a position in the Billboard Jazz charts for two years. The Canadian’s fans were especially happy with the hit Home, penned by Buble to his girlfriend. She was even featured in the video for this song. Home was number one in several countries and possessed a heavy airplay at the world’s leading radio stations for a long while. However, soon, Buble parted with his love, yet he managed to find another one presented by actress Emily Blunt.
In 2007, Michael issued his third full-length record, Call Me Irresponsible, debuting third in Canada. Both critics and music lovers praised the new product from the singer, in particular, his song about his previous affair, Lost. Personal life figured often in Buble’s songs. For instance, he wrote the composition Everything for Blunt, yet never released it because in July 2008 they also parted. This circumstance did not put Michael off the track as he kept recording and performing. By that moment, he had already sold eighteen million copies of his albums all over the world collecting one award after another. In December 2008, Michael Buble became part of big sports after buying the ownership rights to the hockey team Vancouver Giants. Besides, he participated in the television documentary Music and the Brain informing on the effects of music upon the human cognition. In 2009, Michael Buble released the concert DVD and CD titled Michael Buble Meets Madison Square Garden. In 2009 Buble’s new album Crazy Love was issued. Performed in Michael’s traditional way, it received fair reviews from musical experts.
