Michael Steven Bublé was born in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, on 9 September 1975 to Lewis Bublé, a salmon fisherman, and Amber (née Santaga). He has two younger sisters, Brandee, a children's book author, and Crystal, an actress. The siblings were raised in the Roman Catholic faith. He attended Seaforth Elementary School and Cariboo Hill Secondary School.
Bublé is a Croatian last name from the town of Trogir. His paternal grandfather Frank was a native of Croatia. Frank's paternal grandmother was a Radoslavic, and his own mother a Galovic, further evidencing his Croatian roots.
According to an Oprah Winfrey interview on 9 October 2009, Bublé dreamed of becoming a famous singer from the age of two. When he was a teenager, he slept with his Bible and prayed to become a singer. His interest in jazz began around age five when his family played Bing Crosby's White Christmas album.
The first time his family noticed his singing talent was at Christmas time when Bublé was 13 years old, and they heard him powerfully sing the phrase "May your days be merry and bright" when the family was singing to the song "White Christmas" on a car ride.
Bublé had a strong passion for ice hockey and wanted to become a professional hockey player for the Vancouver Canucks growing up, but he believed he wasn't good enough. "I wanted so bad to be a hockey player... If I was any good at hockey, I probably wouldn't be singing right now." He often played hockey in his youth, watched Vancouver Canucks games with his father, and said that he "went to every single home game as a kid... I remember I wanted to be Gary Lupul, I wanted to be Patrik Sundstrom and Ivan Hlinka. I used to think that being named Michael Bublé was pretty cool because I was close to being called Jiri Bubla." Bublé shared his hockey interest with his grandfather.
From the age of 14, Bublé spent six years working during the summer as a commercial fisherman with his father and crewmates. He called the experience "the most deadly physical work I'll ever know in my lifetime. We'd be gone for two, sometimes three months at a time and the experience of living and working among guys over twice my age taught me a lot about responsibility and what it means to be a man."
His first singing engagements were in nightclubs at the age of 16 and were facilitated by his Italian grandfather, Demetrio Santagà, a plumber from Preganziol in Treviso who offered his plumbing services in exchange for stage time for his grandson. Bublé's grandfather paid for his singing lessons. Both his voice teacher, Sandi Siemens, and his maternal grandfather never stopped believing that he would become a star. Bublé's maternal grandmother, Iolanda (née Moscone), was also Italian, from Carrufo.
As a child entertainer he used the name "Mickey Bubbles".
Bublé grew up listening to his grandfather's collection of jazz records and credits his grandfather in encouraging his love for jazz music. "My grandfather was really my best friend growing up. He was the one who opened me up to a whole world of music that seemed to have been passed over by my generation. Although I like rock and roll and modern music, the first time my granddad played me the Mills Brothers, something magical happened. The lyrics were so romantic, so real, the way a song should be for me. It was like seeing my future flash before me. I wanted to be a singer and I knew that this was the music that I wanted to sing."
Bublé never stopped believing he would become a star but admitted he was probably the only one who believed in his dream, stating that even his maternal grandfather thought Bublé was going to be "an opening act for somebody in Las Vegas". He stated he never learned to read and write music, using only emotion to drive his songwriting ability.
At the age of 18, Bublé entered a local talent contest and won, but he was disqualified by organizer Bev Delich for being underage. Delich entered him in the Canadian Youth Talent Search. After Bublé won that contest, he asked Delich to be his manager. Delich represented him for the next seven years, during which Bublé worked diligently at any job that came along: clubs, conventions, cruise ships, hotel lounges, shopping malls, and talent shows.
In 1996, Bublé appeared in TV's Death Game (aka Mortal Challenge) as a Drome Groupie. Also in 1996, he appeared (uncredited) in two episodes of The X-Files as a member of a submarine crew. His first national TV performance was on a 1997 award-winning Bravo! documentary titled Big Band Boom!, directed by Mark Glover Masterson. Beginning in 1997, he became a frequent guest on Vicki Gabereau's national talk show on the CTV network. 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 received two Genie Award nominations for Best Original Song in 2000 for "I've Never Been in Love Before" and "Dumb ol' Heart", two songs he wrote for the film Here's to Life!. He recorded three independent albums (First Dance, 1996; Babalu, 2001; Dream, 2002).
2000–02: Musical beginnings
Bublé's career breakthrough came in 2000 from a surprising chain of events. 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.
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.
2003–04: Michael Bublé
Bublé's self-titled debut album was released 11 February 2003 by 143 Records/Reprise Records. The album features a range of standards from various eras including "Fever", "The Way You Look Tonight", "For Once in My Life", "Moondance" and "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine". Also on the album is "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?", with Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees singing back up vocals. The album went to the top 10 in Canada, United Kingdom, South Africa and reached No. 1 in Australia. It was No. 33 on the ARIA Top 100 Albums of 2003. It achieved marginal success in the United States reaching the top 50 on the Billboard 200. Three tracks from the album ("Kissing a Fool", "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?", "Sway") reached the top 30 on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart.
Bublé appeared nationally on television in the United States on the Today program on 14 February 2003. A campaign featuring "Fever" was launched before Valentine's Day with a quirky marketing campaign that simply stated "You pronounce it Boo-blay." The album went Gold there. Then he began to travel all over the world to promote the album. The tour included Singapore, South Africa, the Philippines, the UK, Canada, South America, and eventually the United States.
In November 2003, Bublé released a Christmas EP Let it Snow, containing five previously unreleased tracks, that peaked at 56 on the Billboard 200. The title track reached the top 40 of the Australia singles chart. A live DVD/CD called Come Fly with Me was released in early 2004. The Come Fly with Me CD was No. 99 on the Aria Top 100 Albums of 2004. The DVD included live footage and behind the scenes footage of Bublé's first world tour. The CD included three new studio tracks, two live recordings of new songs, and three live recordings of songs from the album Michael Bublé. The album peaked at 55 on the Billboard 200. In November 2004 the Christmas edition of his debut album was released as a two-disc set that included both the Michael Bublé and the "Let It Snow" EP.
Bublé won New Artist of the Year at the 2004 Juno Awards, and his album was nominated for Album of the Year but lost to Sam Roberts. He appeared in the 2003 film The Snow Walker. Also in 2003 he portrayed a lounge performer on an episode of Days of Our Lives. In 2004 he appeared as himself in Las Vegas.
Songs from Bublé's debut album ("For Once in My Life", "Kissing a Fool") were released on the soundtrack for the movie Down with Love (2003). The soundtrack also included a previously unreleased duet with Holly Palmer of the movie's title theme. The Junkie XL remix of the theme for the 1960s TV cartoon version of Spider-Man from Bublé's Babalu album was played during the closing credits of Spider-Man 2 (2004), and this version was also released as a single. A CD was released in 2003 of the 7 songs that Bublé sang for Totally Blonde, calling it Totally Bublé.
After the success of Bublé's self-titled debut, DRG Records belatedly released the soundtrack from the 2001 film, Totally Blonde in which he had a co-starring role as a nightclub singer and club owner. DRG 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 stated on his website that he did not want these songs released but that it was out of his control.
2005–06: It's Time

Bublé's second studio album, It's Time, was released 15 February 2005, again by 143/Reprise Records. The album also included standards from a variety of eras including "You Don't Know Me", "Feeling Good", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Save the Last Dance for Me", "Song for You", and "Quando, Quando, Quando" (a duet with Canadian pop singer Nelly Furtado). It also included an original track, "Home", co-written by Bublé, his musical director Alan Chang, and Amy Foster-Gilles.
The album reached No. 1 in Canada, Italy, Japan, and on the Billboard Top Jazz chart, No. 2 in Australia, and No. 7 on the Billboard 200. Additionally it reached the top 10 in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway, Austria, and Sweden. The album spent 104 weeks on the Billboard Top Jazz chart, including a record-breaking 78 weeks in the No. 1 spot. It's Time was Billboard's Top Jazz Album in both 2005 and 2006. The first single, "Feeling Good", met with little commercial success. However, the second single from the album, "Home", reached No. 1 on Billboard Adult Contemporary Tracks chart and No. 72 on the Billboard Hot 100. The third single "Save the Last Dance for Me" reached No. 5 on the Billboard AC Track Chart and No. 99 on the Billboard Hot 100.
He won four Juno Awards in 2006: Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year (It's Time), Single of the Year ("Home"), and Artist of the Year.
He was nominated twice for a Grammy in the category Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album in 2006 (It's Time) and 2007 (Caught in the Act) but lost in both case to Tony Bennett. In 2007, Bublé received one Juno nomination, for Fan Choice, but lost to Nelly Furtado.
2007–08: Call Me Irresponsible
Bublé's third studio album, Call Me Irresponsible, was released 1 May 2007 by 143/Reprise Records. His third effort included songs from different eras like as "Always on My Mind", "Dream", "I've Got the World on a String", and "Comin' Home Baby" (a duet with Boyz II Men). In the US, the album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and rose to number one in its second week. Only a few artists have been able to accomplish this, like Michael Jackson and Sugarland.
The album sold nearly 2 million copies in the US alone. In Australia, it debuted in the top position and was the best-selling album of the year in 2007. In the UK, both the standard version and the special edition were best-selling albums, with the latter outselling the former (standard: 300,000; special edition: 462,000). Additionally, the album was certified 2× Platinum in Europe with over 2 million copies sold. Call Me Irresponsible has sold over 5 million copies worldwide.
The first single from the album was "Everything". It carried a more adult-contemporary sound than his usual big band style and was released in May 2007. The song became one of Bublé's biggest hits, reaching No. 46 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 1 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, and No. 10 in Canada. "Me and Mrs. Jones" was set to be released as the second single off the album but was cancelled despite a music video being made. The next single, released in November 2007, was "Lost", a No. 97 hit on the Hot 100 and No. 19 in the UK. "It Had Better Be Tonight (Meglio Stasera)" was released mainly as a remix single, with many mixes by Eddie Amador. The song reached position No. 89 in Canada. The final single from the album Comin' Home Baby was released in April 2008.
2009–2012: Crazy Love
His fourth studio album, Crazy Love, was due for release by 143/Reprise Records on 13 October 2009. However, an early release in the United States occurred on 9 October 2009, in which Bublé appeared on Oprah that same day and performed the album's first single "Haven't Met You Yet". The album was also promoted in an interview with George Stroumboulopoulos on The Hour on 17 October 2009, and on 22 December 2009 episode of The Glenn Beck Program.
This album contains 12 tracks (and one bonus track), including two original songs co-written by Bublé, "Haven't Met You Yet" and "Hold On". Its first single, "Haven't Met You Yet" was released 31 August 2009, and reached No. 1 on Billboard's Canadian Adult Contemporary chart. Most of the tracks off the album were recorded live because Bublé did not want his album to sound overproduced and slick. Bublé wrote the opening part for his cover on the single "Cry Me a River" in Bond-like theme because he wanted the song to sound very cinematic and bombastic.
Crazy Love debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, becoming Bublé's fourth No. 1 album on Billboard's Top Jazz Albums chart. It also debuted at No. 1 in Australia and Canada, where it became his fastest-selling album. The album was supported by the Crazy Love Tour. During the tour, Bublé performed two nights at the new Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland, which were the first concerts to take place at the venue.
On 18 April 2010, Bublé won four Juno Awards for Juno Fan Choice Award, Single of the Year ("Haven't Met You Yet"), Album of the Year (Crazy Love) and Pop Album of the Year (Crazy Love), plus two Juno nominations for Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. Crazy Love producers David Foster and Bob Rock both received two separate nominations of their own for the Jack Richardson Producer of the Year Award, with Bob Rock winning the award.
Bublé re-released Crazy Love on 25 October 2010 in the US, with an earlier release date of 15 October 2010 for Europe. The special edition is called "Crazy Love: Hollywood Edition", and contains several bonus tracks including Bublé's newest single, "Hollywood", co-written with Toronto songwriter/pianist Robert G. Scott. On 7 September 2010, "Hollywood" was released worldwide on radio and as a digital single on iTunes. He recently played to 100,000 people at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, his biggest concert to date.
Olympics and TV
Bublé took part in the torch relay in Vancouver before the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics. He performed on the Today Show on 12 February, the day of the opening ceremony and during the broadcast on Grouse Mountain. The intro for his song "Cry Me a River" was chosen as the theme for the BBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics. He performed with other Canadian celebrities at the closing ceremony, singing a version of "Maple Leaf Forever" and appearing as a Mountie but having his uniform torn off to reveal a white tuxedo. He appeared in the TV special Michael Bublé's Canada, which aired on Australian cable television in January, ahead of the 2010 Winter Games.
2013–present: To Be Loved and Nobody but Me
Bublé released To Be Loved on 15 April 2013 (regional releases include 22 April in Canada and 23 April in the US). The lead single, "It's a Beautiful Day", was released on 25 February 2013. To Be Loved debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200, becoming the crooner's fourth consecutive number-one album on the chart.
He was featured in the ITV documentary Michael Bublé's Day Off which aired on 30 June 2013. On 18 December 2013, performed his 3rd Annual Christmas Special with NBC. Special guests included Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige.
To advertise Michael Bublé's Christmas in Hollywood on NBC, he released a Christmas song called "The More You Give (The More You'll Have)".
His ninth studio album, Nobody but Me, was released on 21 October 2016. The titular lead single features Black Thought of The Roots and was released on 19 August 2016. During the same month, his perfume went on sale in thirty countries.
Timuss was listed as one of the dedicatees in Bublé's self-titled album Michael Bublé and It's Time and sung background vocals for it. While in Italy, he co-wrote the hit single "Home" for her. She was featured in the music video for "Home". Their engagement ended in November 2005 and inspired him to write "Lost".
During an appearance at Australian television's Logie Awards in 2005, Bublé met British actress Emily Blunt and they soon began dating. She sang background vocals on "Me and Mrs. Jones", and "Everything" was written by Bublé for her.
After his relationship with Blunt ended in July 2008, Bublé began dating Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato. Bublé and Lopilato became engaged in November 2009 and married in March 2011 in Buenos Aires. Bublé co-wrote the hit single "Haven't Met You Yet" for Lopilato while they were dating and she appeared in his music video. The couple have two sons: Noah (born August 2013) and Elias (born January 2016). Noah was diagnosed with cancer in November 2016.
