With his velvety vocals, magnetic stage presence, and passion for jazz standards, Michael Bublé has become one of the most popular and best-selling artists of the 21st century. Though active since the 1990s, he skyrocketed to fame in the 2000s with his revived interest in swinging jazz classics and timeless pop standards.

Early Life & Musical Roots

Michael Steven Bublé was born on September 9, 1975 in Burnaby, British Columbia to Lewis and Amber Bublé. He was the oldest of three children raised in an Italian-Canadian household. Michael‘s grandfather introduced him to jazz legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett through his massive record collection.

As a teen, Michael won local talent shows with renditions of Sinatra‘s "Mack the Knife" and Ben E. King‘s "Stand by Me." Though he later pursued a career in journalism, his passion for jazz proved too strong. At 17, Michael began singing professionally at nightclubs and corporate gigs around Vancouver.

Rise to Fame in the Early 2000s

Bublé got his big break in 2000 performing at Caroline Mulroney‘s wedding. There he met David Foster, who signed him to his 143 Records label. His self-titled major label debut album dropped in 2003, reaching the Canadian and UK top 10 charts. The single "Fever" also expanded his audience.

His sophomore album It‘s Time marked an even bigger breakthrough, hitting #7 in the US. The original track "Home" and his version of "Save the Last Dance for Me" became signature songs. In 2007, Call Me Irresponsible debuted at #1 and featured his first top 40 single "Everything."

Achieving Global Stardom

Bublé continued riding high through the late 2000s and 2010s. His 2009 chart-topper Crazy Love won a Grammy, as did 2011‘s holiday album Christmas. Other smash hits like To Be Loved and Nobody But Me cemented him as a global phenomenon.

After taking time off to care for his ill son, Bublé returned with 2018‘s Love. It became his fourth #1 album in the US. He remains a top touring act, selling out arenas worldwide on his "An Evening with Michael Bublé Tour."

Vocal Style & Musicality

Critics praise Bublé‘s warm, flexible baritone and ability to infuse modern sensibilities into classic pop standards. His breathy tone and phrasing nods to Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, while his showmanship brings youthful energy. His musicality shines through lush orchestral arrangements and spontaneous on-stage charisma.

Personal Life

Bublé was previously engaged to actress Debbie Timuss, but they split in 2005. He married actress and model Luisana Lopilato in 2011, who appeared in his "Haven‘t Met You Yet" video. They have three children together – Noah, Elias and Vida.
