Michael Buble: From Burnaby, BC to the big time for this Canadian crooner
I picked up a Michael Buble CD a number of years ago at Chapters on Robson in Vancouver. I heard it playing and asked who it was. I sort of thought the guy might make it to the big time, but I had no idea how big he'd become. Michael Buble is very big.
There he was on my favorite weekly TV show, CBS Sunday Morning. It was an honest portrayal of the Burnaby, BC boy.
Although my husband and I did laugh when correspondent Cynthia Bowers referred to a small theater in Vancouver where Buble first performed as Granby Island. Hey, it's Granville Island!
I'm hoping Santa brings me his new CD, Call Me Irresponsible.
That would be very responsible of Santa, doncha think?
