The Michael Bublé story is a fascinating and contradictory one. The man who became famous as a contemporary champion of The Great American Songbook often surprises his audiences by performing challenging original songs.
In this sometimes painfully honest account of Bublé's life author Michael Heatley explores the unlikely rise of the Canadian fisherman's son who was about to trade showbiz for journalism when a chance gig at a society wedding gave him his big break.
With a broad spectrum of fans and the guiding hand of producer David Foster, Bublé strives to take control of a career that can sometimes seem as wilful as brilliant. Meanwhile it looks at his two major personal relationships with Debbie Timuss and Emily Blunt, both of which ended abruptly before his engagement to Argentine actress and model Luisana Lopilato.
A truly original talent who can sometimes seem to court controversy with his unguarded remarks and unpredictable performances, Bublé still somehow appears to be at the crossroads of his career. At This Moment: The Michael Bublé Story analyses his remarkable achievements to date and speculates on an un-guessable future for a man who is surely one of contemporary music's true originals.
Michael Heatley is the author of over sixty music-related biographies, ranging from Bon Jovi to Rolf Harris, as well as books on sport and TV. His Michael Jackson: Life of a Legend topped the Sunday Times best-sellers' list in 2009. He also writes for magazines including Music Week, Billboard, Record Collector, Radio Times and the Mail on Sunday.
