Bublé is Back!
- By Ken Werther
Michael Bublé is back! The four-time Grammy Award-winner’s new CD, Love, is his first in more than two years and his fans are over the moon. Here’s some fun stuff most people don’t know about Bublé — he dreamed of becoming a famous singer from the age of two and as a teenager he slept with his bible and prayed to become … well, at least a singer, if not a famous one. In the meanwhile, he had a strong passion for ice hockey and wanted to become a professional player. He didn’t think he was good enough and once said, “If I was any good at hockey, I probably wouldn’t be singing right now.” Bublé began performing in nightclubs at age 16 and as a young entertainer he used the name Mickey Bubbles!
In 2016, his then three-year-old son Noah was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a rare liver cancer that occurs in children. Bublé immediately canceled all public engagements and stayed with his family while Noah was treated. I think it’s safe to say everyone was rooting for him. Now returning to the music scene, Love drops on December 4th. He considers this effort to be a love letter to his fans and to music itself. I must admit I came late to the Michael Bublé fan club, but I’m heading to iTunes right now to see what I’ve been missing!
