In 2000, the salmon fisherman’s son was on the verge of giving up his singing career, doubting he would get beyond hotel lounges and corporate events, when, in short succession, he did a wedding gig for a former Prime Minister, met Foster, who signed him to his own 143 Records, a subsidiary of Warner Bros., acquired Bryan Adams’s manager and Madonna’s publicist and heard Tony Bennett dispense fatherly advice while calling him “kid.” Small wonder he’s still getting his bearings up here where life is fast and the air is rich and thin.Part of him is adjusting just fine — even Bublé’s started tossing around the word “kid,” referring both to himself and others, and sometimes he sounds like he’s riffing at a Rat Pack roast in the early ‘60s — and part of him appears to be the hockey-loving, all-Canadian suburban boy from a close family who’s still a little bit green and awestruck.Right now, and for the foreseeable future, he owns the franchise.” Bublé has already appeared on the soundtracks of two romantic comedies — Renée Zelwegger and Ewan Mc Gregor’s Down With Love and Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock’s Two Weeks Notice — and played the part of a karaoke singer in Gwyneth Paltrow’s Duet.Last fall he appeared on the NBC comedy-drama Las Vegas as himself — a singer hired for the main dinner theatre. He was natural and funny, showing enough talent to suggest the potential for an alternative career in a Friends-like sitcom.) He’s done Leno, the Super Bowl pre-game show, a Madonna party and he swept host Katie Couric off her feet on NBC’s Today Show.Yolanda Santaga, Mitch’s wife, says: “Michael’s dad wasn’t around in the summertime so the kids would come over all the time.To please his grandfather Michael would learn these old songs. “He’d put in, like, a hot water dispenser or something so they would let me get up and sing…“And though my luuuuv is ra-er-er-er-er-er, and though my love is true-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-yeah-ah-ah-ah, I’m hung like a bird…
Furtado cries out in mock outrage, then laughs indulgently, the way teenaged girls laugh at the goofy antics of teenaged boys.
He’s here this week to put the finishing touches on his new CD. I said, sounds good.” It’s true, yes, but Bublé is self-aware enough to realize that it also sounds good to the media machine that’s churning around him, which has him cast as a handsome young Sinatra without the Chairman’s menace.
As he parks his rented PT Cruiser in the driveway outside Foster’s Chartmaker Studio, he says: “The people at Warner said they were renting me some fancy-dancy sports car. In the next breath, the nice, diffident boy unfazed by showbiz culture becomes the cocky, wise-cracking “kid,” a joker who can deliver a line worthy of Sinatra himself.
But he loved them, too, and it seemed like he would hear a song once and be able to sing it.” Mitch, who’s now 80 and joined his grandson on a tour of Italy last year, says: “He used to sing with a broom handle as a mic. Then, one Boxing Day, when he was about 14, he started singing New York, New York with a karaoke set he got for Christmas. I thought, this guy’s really got talent.” Mitch arranged for his grandson to take singing lessons and, years later, bartered some plumbing services to local bandleaders if they would let Bublé sit in. Grampa always thought I had it even when I really didn’t.”) When Bublé was 16, he entered his first talent contest.
