Just the thought and anticipation of Michael Buble’s new Christmas album, “Christmas”, makes me want to deck my halls with boughs of holly in August.
And, even more exciting is this news from Michael’s Official Website:
“To celebrate the release of Michael’s upcoming Christmas album, he will be headlining his first network television variety special on NBC in December. Produced by Ben Silverman (“The Office,” “Ugly Betty”) and Lorne Michaels (NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” “30 Rock”), the one-hour special will feature Michael as he performs hits from his latest Christmas album combined with sketch comedy segments. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!”
Finally, a Christmas special I can relate to! December used to be chock full of these specials so I hope we see more of them in the future.
Michael is one of my favorite vocalists on this planet. His communicative and expressive golden voice is something that we don’t hear and see too often in today’s music.
Michael doesn’t need gimmicks, tricks, smoke or mirrors to sell his music on stage. His captivating and charming personality, combined with his seamless, velvet vocal quality, captures the hearts and minds of his listeners time and time again.
Personally, I could listen to his CDs all day and never get bored. I always find new and exciting vocal nuggets tucked inside each track, which I relay to the singers whom I coach. He is an exceptional role model for aspiring young singers everywhere.
Singing from your heart and then wearing your heart on your sleeve is what inspires and Michael has always demonstrated this very fact from Day One.
Congratulations Michael and, from all of us here in the MCL Community, thank you for being such a reassuring and genuine presence in the music industry.
So, how many of you will be purchasing multiple copies of Michael’s CD? I can’t think of a better gift.
