Grammy award winner Michael Buble is set to return to Manila to perform for a charity show at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City on April 28.
This was announced by multi-awarded independent film producer Baby F. Go whose BG International Productions will bring the Canadian crooner to the country. The show will benefit the PC Good Heart Foundation, Inc.
“We will make the official announcement soon,” said Go, who is venturing in producing concert for the first time.
This will be the third time that Buble will perform in the Philippines. The last time the Canadian superstar performed in Manila was in January 2015 as part of his world tour.
This year, Buble will kick off his concert series dubbed “An Evening With Michael Buble” in Tampa, Florida on Feb. 13. His concert series will also take him to Europe until November this year.
Buble, 43, known for his jazz vocals with a modern twist, made famous the hit-songs “Home,” “Haven’t Met You Yet,” “Spider-Man Theme,” “Everything,” etc.
He has released nine studio albums, four of which went to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 Albums Chart. His latest CD is called “Love.”
It was an emotional return for Buble to the concert scene after he took time off to take care of his eldest son Noah who was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016.
“Right now, the goal is to make music and to laugh and to cry and dance and get to be really connected to all these beautiful souls all over the world,” Buble told People.
He added: “I’m emotional about it, obviously. It’s been a long journey. I know there’s gonna be a lot of moments where sometimes the songs and things within the songs might mean a lot more than they ever have.”
“I really feel that my family and I have been shown so much grace. The people that prayed for us and loved us and supported us, it means a lot for me to come out on tour and go to their backyards and show them with my actions in person just how much I appreciate them,” Buble said.
“There will be moments when it may be a little harder for me to control, but I think that’s a beautiful thing. I just feel different as a human being and I feel different in my experience in just living my life. It’s given us faith in humanity,” the singer added.
