Can you imagine going about your everyday errands or traveling home from work, only to stumble upon a live performance from Michael Bublé? New York City Subway riders had this fantasy become a reality one day when they least expected it.
While Bublé may be used to singing on big stages – he was excited to pair up with the a cappella group Naturally 7 for a surprise performance in the subway. Together they sang a rendition of an all-time classic that had passersby stopping in their tracks.
Michael Bublé is a four-time Grammy Award-winning music artist who’s sold millions of albums worldwide. He has a smooth, soulful voice that can captivate an audience.
When the Canadian singer released his album To Be Loved, which featured the track “Who’s Lovin’ You.” Around the same time, he headed to the New York City Subway with the members of Naturally 7 to perform the song without riders expecting it.
The mini-concert took place at the W. 67th Street subway stop in New York City. Using just their voices, the eight men created a show for those who were lucky enough to be in the area.
A group gathered around the singers even before they began. People pulled out their phones to capture the event that many fans would have given anything to witness. After all, it’s not every day that you get to listen to Michael Bublé perform from just feet away!
Those who were in the subway car got an extra-special surprise when the doors opened and the performers were outside them. Likely, not everyone even realized what a rare opportunity they had walked into.
Michael Bublé and Naturally 7’s rendition of “Who’s Lovin’ You” is so full of soul – it’s chilling.
“Who’s Lovin’ You” is a song that was written by Smokey Robinson in 1960, and since then, it’s been covered by numerous musical artists. The Miracles released the original version of the tune – with The Jackson 5’s version being considered the most popular.
But even without background instruments or fancy equipment, the vocalists created an incredible cover of the classic that might become your new favorite.
After the performance, the crowd of subway riders gave a round of applause and Bublé hugged each member of Naturally 7 (who’s currently gone on three world tours with Bublé as his special guests).
For Michael Bublé, singing in the NYC Subway was an unforgettable experience that meant a lot to him. He exclaimed:
“That is the coolest thing ever man … That is when you know you’ve made it.”
The artist also shared:
“Singing in the New York Subway is something that’s been done for years and years and years. I feel like it’s the most authentic, organic way to make music. You see some of the greatest musicians in the world come down here and play. I mean the tiles, you get this great bounce … Out of all the press I had to do, out of everything that I’ve been doing, Europe and America, this was the thing I was most excited about.”
Bublé, who was born in British Columbia, was asked if he felt like a “real New Yorker” because of the experience. He told the interviewer:
“I feel like a real New Yorker now.”
