Michael Bublé (born 9 September 1975 in Burnaby, British Columbia) is a Canadian crooner, singer and actor. While achieving modest chart success in the United States, his 2003 self-titled Michael Bublé album has reached the top ten in Canada, the UK and Australia. In 2004, a live album and video Come Fly With Me(2004) was listed on the Billboard music video charts and reached Australia’s top 40 album charts. He reached commercial success in the U.S. with It’s Time. Michael Bublé is of Italian descent.

Michael Bublé’s introduction to the music of the era came to him through his grandfather, who filled his grandson’s ears with the sounds of The Mills Brothers, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and others. As Bublé eagerly absorbed the recordings, he began to realize that he wanted to be a singer and that this style of music, virtually foreign to his own generation, was what he wanted to perform.

With his grandfather’s assistance, Bublé soon learned a whole catalog of tunes and gained experience and exposure by singing as a guest with several local bands. While still in his teen years, he won the Canadian Youth Talent Search, released several independent albums, and performed in a musical review titled Swing that traveled across the U.S. It wasn’t long before Bublé was introduced to Grammy-winning producer David Foster and signed his first major recording contract with Reprise Records.

The two Canadians began work on a debut album that would incorporate Bublé’s aptitude for standards into songs that spanned several decades. His self-titled debut disc was released in early 2003, and featured jazzy takes on old standards like "Fever" and "The Way You Look Tonight" as well as newer classics like " http://panther1.last.fm/webclient/inline/1/inlinePlayer.swfMoondance" and " http://panther1.last.fm/webclient/inline/1/inlinePlayer.swfHow Can You Mend a Broken Heart."

Further exposure ensued with a world tour and appearances on several television programs like NBC’s Today Show, in which he sang a duet with host Katie Couric. He finished off 2003 with an EP of holiday material, Let It Snow, and began 2004 with the live CD/DVD set Come Fly With Me. In 2005, It’s Time was a numer one hit in Canada, Japan, Italy, and Australia, and made the top ten of both the UK and US. Later that year he released the live album Caught in the Act.
