Michael Bublé will tell his ‘story’ in special airing on multiple networks

Michael Bublé will tell his ‘story’ in special airing on multiple networks

The B.C.-born superstar told USA Today he was flying home from Argentina recently when a flight attendant told him she was a fan. But she was having a debate with her fellow flight attendants.

“And I said, ‘What’s the question?’ And she said, ‘Did you win American Idol or The Voice? Or did you just place?’

“I had an epiphany in that moment,” Bublé said. “And I went and sat in my seat and I thought … so many people in America, they don’t know. They might know my name, and they might hear the music or have seen the Bubly commercial, but they really don’t know.”

Presumably they’ll know more after Wednesday when his special Bublé! airs at 10 p.m. on NBC, CTV, Citytv and Crave.

Backed by a 36-piece orchestra, Bublé will sing romantic staples such as “Fly Me to the Moon,” harmonize with American jazz artist Cecile McLorin Salvant on “La Vie en Rose,” and perform original songs such as his chart-topping “Haven’t Met You Yet” and tracks off his latest album, Love.

The special, which was filmed in an intimate concert setting, will also feature never-before-seen photos and footage from his adolescence in Canada and early career.

“I thought, well, this is a great opportunity for me to tell a story,” Bublé said. “A story of my life that tells, biographically, the history of how I did this and where I came from.”
