AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Michael Buble
Song:Haven't Met You Yet
Michael Buble is a very successful neo-crooner. For the most part, his music is aimed at an older mostly female audience. So he doesn't need pop hit singles. Haven't Met You Yet is is biggest pop hit to date and it didn't break the top 20. He was born Sept. 9, 1975 in Burnaby, BC. He has wanted to be a singer since he was a child. He also wanted to be a hockey player but he says he isn't any good at that. His grandfather paid for singing lessons and got him gigs in local clubs. Buble loved The Mills Brothers just like Dean Martin. He won a talent contest, got a manager and was a frequent guest on Vicki Gabereau's CTV talk show which was taped in Vancouver. Buble's big break came when he sang at the wedding of Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney's daughter Caroline and producer David Foster was a guest at the wedding. Buble signed with Foster's 143 label distributed by Warner Bros. His 2003 debut CD Michael Buble sold three million CDs worldwide. Then his 2005 CD It's Time sold six million CDs. Remember this is all without benefit of a hit single. Haven't Met You Yet is from Buble's 2009 CD Crazy Love. The single reached #24 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is his biggest hit to date. Buble wrote the song with his pianist and musical director Alan Chang and Amy Foster-Gilles who is David Foster's daughter. The girl in the video is Argentinian actress Luisana Lopilato who is married to Buble and is currently expecting a second child. Buble's latest CD To Be Loved was released in 2013 and his sales are holding up very well. He's a big concert draw. He isn't touring right now as he is working on a new album. Here's the video for Haven't Met You Yet by Michael Buble.
