Michael Bublé: Triumph of a Young Singer

Advertising Information for vagmusic
Having a strong influence on a particular type of musical genre may make that some people prefer to start an artistic career based on certain preference. This is the case of Michael Bublé, who was frequently listening to swing music since his grandfather loved it and wanted his grandson aware of the fantastic tunes of Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, the Mills Brothers, and some more.

Once immersed with their recordings, he figured out that his most inner wish was to become a singer and that it was the style of music he wanted to follow. Thanks to his grandfather’s help, he learned the wide variety of tunes and got experience by performing as a guest with some local groups. For him, it was very gratifying to win the Canadian Youth Talent Search when he was just a teenager. He also released various independent albums and performed in a musical review across the United States. Not waiting for so long, he met the Grammy-winning producer David Foster to sign his first great recording contract with Reprise Records.

For producing Bublé’s debut album, it was necessary to incorporate something new and different such as pop into songs that have lasted several decades. In 2003, the release of his self-titled disc contained old and newer classics of jazz as “The Way You Look Tonight” and “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart". To promote his debut disc, he made a world tour and different network television programs like NBC’S Today Show, wherein he performed a duet with host Katie Couric. In 2005, the song, "It’s Time", reached a number one hit in Canada, Italy, Japan, and Australia and was the top ten of U.S and UK. Also, that same year, he released Caught in the Act, the live album.
