Michael Bublé

My favorite singer is Michael Bublé because he has a velvety, smooth, full voice. He also sings in a genre of music that I really enjoy. Swing/jazz music is a favorite of mine. I enjoy the big band sound as well as the fun charisma that is brought by swing, soulful music. Most of his songs are remakes of older songs made by similar artists that Michael Bublé is inspired by, such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. Some people have a problem with the fact that he does not write much of his own music, but I like hearing his new takes on classic songs because he adds a modern twist to them. I went to his concert in 2011 at the Key Arena and that made me much more impressed with him as an artist because he was interactive with the crowd even though there were thousands of people. His concert was also very personable because he would make numerous jokes and tell personal stories. 

This is his official website where you can find touring dates, news, and even personal pictures he posts of his family and band. 

This website talks about where Michael Bublé is from and how he grew up. It also explains how he got into music and how he started his career.

There are many of his most popular songs and videos on this website for people to watch and listen to freely.
