NEW YORK (Reprise Records/ Warner Bros.) - Michael Buble has plenty to celebrate in 2004 besides the holidays. According to his label, Reprise Records, the Canadian singing sensation has sold over three million CDs worldwide including five times platinum in Australia, three times platinum in Canada, twice platinum in the United Kingdom, South Africa, Italy, New Zealand and the Philippines, and gold status in Indonesia, Malaysia, Spain, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Buble's collective sales of his CDs and DVDs in the U.S. have sold well over 1 million units.

The Vancouver native has had scores of sold-out engagements throughout Europe and Asia. Last month, he completed 16 sell-outs in the U.K. alone, most notably two SROs at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall. As the year finishes out, Buble has performed for close to a quarter of a million devoted fans. He has received glowing reviews, standing ovations and enormously enthusiastic responses from fans and critics everywhere.

"Buble's stage presence is magnetic. He has charisma, energy and when he sings, words float out of his mouth; he swivels like Elvis with a flash of a tap dancing Fred Astaire. He has fun," raved the London Sunday Times Magazine. "He has the ability to be one of life's legends... graceful.... grateful, respectful and sophisticated," gushed Out & About magazine, Glasgow, Scotland. The New York Times said Buble was "dripping with star quality."

Buble's whirlwind schedule will continue through mid-December with international promotional activities including the NBC-TV Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting and an appearance at the Royal Variety Performance in London, hosted by Prince Charles. In addition, Buble has been jetting back and forth to Los Angeles to complete his much-anticipated second CD, which is scheduled for release in early February - just in time for Valentine's Day.

Already considered one of the hardest-working entertainers in show business, Buble will get a brief time-out later this month when he is expected home in Vancouver for the holidays. After the New Year, he continues his globetrotting activities, which are expected to lead to an even bigger 2005 for one of the most exciting artists in the music scene today.
