Mom stops Bublé show to give her kid the spotlight

Michael Bublé understands the love of a mother.

That’s why the crooner didn’t even seem to mind when an enthusiastic mom stopped his concert recently in England. So what that the show was being filmed for television? Her son could sing, she insisted, and Bublé really needed to hear him.

The amused Bublé was a good sport about it and invited the (really embarrassed we are sure) 15-year-old named Sam on stage to sing his signature “Feeling Good” song.

Needless to say, Sam rocked it, much to the delight of Bublé. It was a little bit of magic that makes us just love the Canadian singer all the more.

    I know he's a very talented (and handsome) guy, but he's also very classy! What a nice thing to do!

    I don't like Buble's singing, but my respect for him has skyrocketed. Imagine if this had happened to any American solo singer. What would they have done ........ ?

    If Canadians are so nice and polite, explain their success at hockey.

    I've always liked Canadians (even though I tease them ... "Making poutine is a prOcess, eh"), and have always wanted to visit but never have. And for some reason, I rarely hear a Canadian musician I don't like (BNL, Bublé, Kalan Porter, the Moffatts, etc., etc.!). Keep up your niceness and I'll end up defecting to the Great White North for sure! 😉

    He is such a nice and genuine person. i saw him perform in Biloxi and he ALWAYS interacts with his audience. His shows are absolutely the most fun. He can sing and will even stop the bank to sing acapella. I think this was a very classy and nice thing to do. Who knows...maybe that kid will be the next Buble or even worse...another Justin Beiber.

    I have never met a person from Canada I did not like. I live in Warren, MI and I get the chance to meet these fine people often. NOW, that said, I would like to suggest Mr. Buble' check out Mr. Damian McGinty of Celtic Thunder. They could do a duet of either "Feelin' Good" or Damian's amazing cover "Home". This could be a HUGE crowd pleaser and I want front row seats!! I am a fan of both men and I am going out on a limb and suggest they do this on OPRAH!! Talk about an AHA moment. A smart move on everyone's part.

    Hats off to Buble'....loved his music before this.....loved the man after. I am a fan for life. What he did, so unselfishly, will never be forgotten in this young mans eyes. I think this is so cool. Buble' was such a good sport, I don't feel this disrupted anything terrible.

    There are rude and nice people everywhere. I've been to Canada and have met rude and obnoxious people there also. Lived in Alaska for a while and met the most annoying Canadians ever coming over the border.
    I have also been to Michael Buble's concert and was not impressed, the opening act was better than him.

    if i had been in the audience I would NOT have been happy or even the slightest bit amused that the mother did that. also having worked in the music business for a few years, I can just imagine what the show's producer was thinking (and it wasn't like positive or amusing). i understand that the mother simply wanted her kid's supposed talent acknowledged but there are times and places to promote your kid – causing a stop in a concert in NOT the way to do it.

    Michael Buble has real class...His music is just ok (I’m in to Metal and Hard Rock) , but watching him perform is something really special, you can tell he's just a genuine guy. Kudos Mike Bubble...

    I dont know who buble is, never heard of him but i think what he did showed he had class. he didn't embarrass the mother or the child. and canada Isnt part of the united states. canada is its own country, thats why you need a passport to go there.

      Nut naa, Canada is a part of America, and you only need a passport to get then if you've left the country for some reason.

    Kudos to Buble for being nice about it, but seriously...if I'd paid good money to see him I'd be seriously annoyed if some Mom wanted her kid onstage. Quite rude.

    Several years ago, I took my 4 year old daughter to see Michael. After the concert we found out he was next door at a hotel bar. My sis went in, told him my daughter was outside & wanted to meet him. He left his party, came outside & sat on the ground & talked & sang with my little girl. Such a sweetheart! There are sweet people from ALL nationalities!

      Or told the audience that the kid doesnt deserve to sing becuase only he and Beyonce are the only 2 people in the world who can sing.

    Now it can be assured that at every concert he performs, someone (or many) will expect (and likely not get) the same treatment. Sometimes doing the nice thing has unintended negative consequences.
