Michael Bublé

September 9, 1975
  • Michael Bublé made frequent appearances on the Canadian national talk show hosted by Vicki Gabereau, and when scheduled guests had to cancel, the show's producer would often give him a call to fill in. As well as giving him a lot of exposure, his appearances on the show helped him perfect his television skills as a performer and as an interview guest. He appeared on Vicki Gabereau's final show in 2005.
  • The Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney heard about Michael Bublé from an aide, and invited him to sing at his daughter Caroline's wedding. At the wedding, Bublé was introduced to David Foster, an award winning producer and record executive who later produced an album for Michael Bublé.
  • When Michael Bublé was 16 he had his first singing engagements in nightclubs, which were arranged by his Italian grandfather, Demetrio Santaga, who would offer his plumbing services in exchange for stage time for his grandson. His grandfather also paid for his singing lessons, and Bublé claims that his grandfather was his best friend while he was growing up.
  • On his 2007 concert rider, Michael Buble asked for a local team hockey puck as a memento of the places he visited.
  • Bublé got engaged to Argentine actress/model Luisana Lopilato in November 2009 and tied the knot in Buenos Aires in 2011. He pays tribute to her on his To Be Loved track "Close Your Eyes."
  • When asked by The Guardian what advice he would give to a singer, Bublé replied: "Steal from as many people as possible. Rip off one person and you're a thief - but if you steal from everyone, you can tell people it's research."
  • Bublé has banned saxophone solos during his concerts. He explained to The Sunday Telegraph: "They creep me out. It's like when someone takes a poop on a piece of paper and goes, 'This is abstract art.'"
  • Michael Bublé and Luisana Lopilato spent part of their honeymoon in Disney World in Florida, sleeping in Cinderella's castle.
  • In 2016, his 3-year-old son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer. Bublé put his career on hold and moved the family from Vancouver to Los Angeles so Noah could receive the best care. Two years later, with Noah's cancer in remission, Bublé returned to music, releasing the album Love.
