Christmas in Michael Bublé’s Vancouver (win a signed CD)

Hometown hero Michael’s Bublé’s Holiday special aired last night on NBC, and it was shot right here in Vancouver this year. While he was here, we were able to get some fantastic footage to share with you, as he shot various scenes in and around his home town. In honor of Michael’s recent visit, we are posting the video so you too can enjoy the laughs from behind the scenes, and the perspective from behind the camera as Michael celebrates his home city, province and country.

Michael Bublé – “Home For The Holidays” Behind The Scenes

Michael was also kind enough to share with us his Top Five Things to Do when he comes home to Vancouver. In his own words:

  1. Stay home and RELAX. I rarely get to do this, but when I arrive, and breathe in the fresh Vancouver air, I know I am home and rest cannot be far behind..
  2. Go to a hockey game. The Vancouver Giants, or the Vancouver Canucks…always great to root for my team on home turf.
  3. Grocery shopping at the public market on Granville Island.
  4. Hit the Children’s Festival with my nieces and nephews.
  5. Sleigh Rides at Grouse Mountain with my wife Luisana. Just a quick drive from downtown and you’re in a winter wonderland!

    Enjoyed the Christmas special. Would love a signed CD!

    • Valerie

      Michael is an all time favorite at our house. I have four beautiful daughters and an 11 year old grandaughter that foll0w him on twitter, we are linked to the Buble insider page and play his music year round. Three generations of Buble lovers!! This cd would be awesome to win and it would get plenty of playing time around our house <3

    • Annabelle Leclerc

      Michael Bublé is a wonderful singer. I have listen to his songs through so many difficult, happy and lonely moments. He’s a mentor for many people and I love his music. With all my heart, Annabelle

    • Marnie

      Michael,

      I enjoyed your singing greatly. However, the 2012 special seemed very plastic–too rehearsed and artificial.
      Your voice is amazing–perhaps you are trying too hard–just be you–we love you.

    • Suzie Q

      Truly enjoy listening to your music , however I LOVE what you do for your hometown VANCOUVER & what you do for the Children! It is wonderful that you don’t forget who you are and where you are from. I am grateful for who you are and what you do…Thank you Michael! xo

  20. I saw him 2 years ago, around Christmas time, just walking around Coquitlam Centre mall with what looked to be his sister, brother in law and a niece or nephew on his shoulders. Nobody was bugging him for photos or anything, just funny to see peoples’ faces light up as they recognize him when he walks by. =D

  21. Christie M

    That would make an awesome Chrisitmas gift!

  22. Helen

    Thoroughly enjoy Mr. Buble’s renditions of some classics!
