Canadian Jazz Vocalist Takes Ireland By Storm

Fans in Ulster have embraced crooner Michael Buble, who returns to that fair city on the heels of the release of his new album It’s Time, produced by multi-Grammy Award winner and fellow Canadian David Foster.

Buble, who draws comparisons to Sinatra, has been capturing audiences around the world over the last two years of non-stop touring, including five sold out nights at the Sydney Opera House.

With the release of his second album of standards in January, Buble has been firmly seated in the Top 40 for three months, boasting 2.5m in sales worldwide.

Featuring Buble’s infectious jazz spin on Nina Simone’s Feeling Good, Marvin Gaye’s How Sweet It Is, Ray Charles’ You Don’t Know Me and The Beatles’ Can’t Buy Me Love, the 13-track collection on It’s Time includes his first self-penned offering, Home.

In keeping with the continuing success of his world tour, Michael Buble’s show at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall on Thursday is sold out.
