Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous.
Actually, who are you not to be?

Buble.. pronounced Boo-blay.. not bubble!
Saturday. 6.12.04 6:43 am
The first thing you should know about Michael Buble is the correct way to pronounce his name. Say bubble and you can hear people tittering at your lack of sophistication– it’s pronounced a Frenchy Boo-blay. The next thing you should know is that almost every single media has been raving about that swoony, lyrical voice and drawing parallels to ol’ blue eyes Frank Sinatra.

He may only be 25, but Michael Buble’s music and influences dive into treasure troves of old-time jazz greats. Under his grandfather’s influence, he grew up listening to jazz legends like Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald – not surprisingly, his brand of music is essentially jazz, with some swing tunes and a bit of rock and roll thrown in for a good mix.

At the tender age of 17, he decided that jazz music was his passion and he wanted to carve a career for himself in this field. Buble confesses, “I grew up in love with all these vocalists and I stole, I just flat out stole as much as I possibly could from each of them. And found my own voice in doing that, so what I bring to the song is myself and my experience. Hopefully sincerity, love, respect for the music and just basically to mean what I say.”

If you are hoping this cutie will suddenly decide to change genres of music like pop for example, it’s not going to happen. Buble states with conviction, “I will not become a pop singer. It’s not even about a choice. It’s just I would be miserable being a liar.” “I refuse to be something that I’m not. I’ve got to be myself and at the end of the day it’s better for me to be myself and to hope that you like me, than to lie and maybe trick you for awhile. Because you are smart enough to figure me out. I can only get away with it for so long. I’d rather be my goofy self and just hope that you [accept] it, “ rationalizes Michael.

Critics have written of Michael Buble as a rip-off, someone with no talent or originality, a young singer who covered 10 renowned songs, and repackaged them into a self-titled album to be sold to the masses.

These critics will soon be silenced.
In his next album, which he is working on, several songs will be penned by him, so that he will no longer be labelled as just ‘stealing’ other people’s songs.

Will the day come when a new promising singer is called the reincarnated Michael Buble, as he recently prophesied? We think so. Because even if fickle-minded audiences eventually tire of Buble’s cover of old classics, they will never be able to erase his sincere and unique charm.
