The Regrettable Education of Michael Buble
Huffington Post - 3 months
Upon hearing the news of his son's cancer diagnosis, my heart immediately went out to this man I have never met and likely never will. Obviously, I hurt for his entire family. But as a father who has also heard the dreaded words, "your child has cancer," I can identify more with Noah's Daddy and the cries of utter helplessness pounding a discordant melody inside his weary mind. Quite frankly, this is awful and I don't wish it on anyone, famous or otherwise. There are things he is in the process of discovering that no man should be forced to learn - yet his education is being forged in the pristine environment of a hospital and it can't be stopped. He can't withdraw from school, clep out of an exam, or skip this grade. There is no syllabus and the lectures can change violently at a moment's notice. This is not a bunny class... basket-weaving 101. No, this is AP post-graduate work - a trial by fire where no grades are curved and no group study is allowed. Sharpen your pencil and take y ...

Michael Bublé Takes A Break From Singing After Son's Cancer Diagnosis
Huffington Post - 3 months
Just one week after Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato announced that their 3-year-old son, Noah, has cancer, Bublé’s friend and mentor David Foster gave an update on how the singer is coping. “I think Michael, right now, is in a huge bubble, as you would expect when this happens. Everything shuts down around you,” the composer told Entertainment Tonight Canada, later adding that Bublé “will not sing again until his child is well.” “I’m certain of it,” he said. Many fans have reached out to the singer through social media, and Foster said that a few have contacted him wishing to extend their well-wishes and resources to Bublé. Though the diagnosis is heartbreaking, Bublé is “in good shape.”  “He’s got good doctors around him. We will hope and pray for a good outcome, which I believe that they will have,” Foster said, suggesting his fellow Canadian’s “good karma” will come into play.   Feliz día de la madre !! Happy Mother's Day @luisanalopilato !! #my ...

    Age 25
    After the success of Bublé's self-titled debut, DRG Records belatedly released the jazzy soundtrack from the 2001 film, Totally Blonde in which Bublé had a co-starring role as a nightclub singer/club owner.
    More Details Hide Details Capitalizing on Bublé's newfound stardom, DRG Records basically ignored the music's connection to the film by altering the title and putting a shot of Bublé on the cover making it appear as if this was a proper Michael Bublé release. The slight misrepresentation was not lost on Bublé who has stated on his website that he did not want these songs released, but that it was out of his control.
  • 2000
    Age 24
    Bublé did some acting in this period; as a karaoke singer in Duets in 2000, and as Van Martin (a club owner) in Totally Blonde in 2001, produced by Andrew Van Slee.
    More Details Hide Details
    Bublé's career breakthrough came in 2000 from a surprising chain of events.
    More Details Hide Details Michael McSweeney, an aide to former Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney, saw Bublé's performance at a business party and received a copy of Bublé's self-financed independent album. McSweeney showed the album to Mulroney and his wife. Bublé subsequently was invited to sing at the wedding of Mulroney's daughter, Caroline, where he sang Kurt Weill's "Mack the Knife". At the wedding Bublé was introduced to David Foster, a multi-Grammy Award-winning producer and record executive who previously had worked with artists such as Madonna, Brandy Norwood, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Céline Dion, Barbra Streisand, Kenny G., Cher, Josh Groban, and Andrea Bocelli. Initially, David Foster was reluctant to sign Bublé to his 143 Records label because he "didn't know how to market this kind of music." Bublé moved to Los Angeles with his agent for a brief period to convince Foster to sign him. Eventually, Foster agreed to produce an album for him if he raised $500,000 to cover the costs of the production (which Bublé did). Foster ended up covering the costs of production under his label, with no assurances of support from Warner Brothers, and after Bublé received the personal stamp of approval and support of Foster's friend, musician and songwriter Paul Anka. After David Foster agreed to produce Bublé’s debut album, Bruce Allen, whom Bublé had pursued for years to be his manager, also signed Bublé.
    Bublé received two Genie Award-nominations in 2000 for two songs he wrote for the film Here's to Life! ("I've Never Been in Love Before", "Dumb ol' Heart").
    More Details Hide Details He recorded three independent albums (First Dance, 1996; Babalu, 2001; Dream, 2002).
  • 1997
    Age 21
    Beginning in 1997, he became a frequent guest on Vicki Gabereau's national talk show on the CTV network.
    More Details Hide Details During its first season, the Vancouver-based program aired live, which ultimately worked in Bublé's favour. When a scheduled guest was forced to cancel, the show's music producer often asked Bublé to fill in at the last minute. The Gabereau appearances provided Bublé with great exposure, but they also helped the singer hone his television skills as a performer and as an interview guest. In a mutual show of gratitude, Bublé appeared on the final Gabereau show in 2005, along with Jann Arden and Elvis Costello.
    Bublé's first national TV performance was on a 1997 award-winning Bravo! documentary titled Big Band Boom!, directed by Mark Glover Masterson.
