Before becoming a singer-songwriter for the easy listening music genre, Michael Bublé was born and raised in Burnaby, a district located in the heart of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Since the tender age of two years old, Michael Bublé already had aspirations of becoming a music star but also had fancied the idea of becoming a professional hockey player on his favorite team, the Vancouver Canucks.

As a teenager, Michael Bublé kept the Holy Bible at his bedside, praying each night that he would achieve success as a musical performer. During this time frame, he was a commercial fisherman, working alongside with his father. Whenever he could pick up side gigs, or take part in talent competitions, Michael Bublé would do so as he knew it was only a matter of time his prayers would be answered. Starting at the age of eighteen, Michael Bublé steadily rose to earn the recognition he needed so he could leave commercial fishing behind and do what he believed all along he was meant to do. Starting in 2003,
Michael Buble’s name started to have his recorded music appear on the music charts when his first released single, the Bee Gees’ “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart,” charted at number twenty-two on the US Billboard Adult Contemporary/Easy Listening chart. Prayers answered, the successful music star, Michael Bublé, has so far released a total of eight studio albums, nine extended plays (EP), three live albums, and eighteen singles.
