W5 turning the spotlight on Michael Buble ahead of the Junos

JunosBubleW5 will turn to the spotlight on Juno Awards host Michael Buble ahead of the ceremony.

Premiering this Saturday, April 20 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV, W5’s “THE VOICE” catches up with the acclaimed international star, whose career has included the sale of more than 40 million albums to date.

The Burnaby, B.C.-born artist muses with CTV’s Beverly Thomson about his future plans, becoming a father for the first time, and his upcoming album release, while taking an honest and even touching look back over his career.
When Bublé first appeared on the music scene 10 years ago, he struggled to prove that he was more than just a lounge singer. Thomson heads backstage with Bublé at his Los Angeles rehearsal studio, offering viewers an intimate look at the charming 37-year-old who now seems to have it all: good looks, a stunning wife, millions of records sold, and his latest production: a baby, now on the way.

Bublé reflects on his ascent to international stardom, sharing the dark side of life in the spotlight, including the insecurity and reckless relationships – just some of the side effects of sudden fame. Bublé gets emotional when Thomson shows him footage from a W5-produced documentary profile about him before his string of #1 albums landed, and then shares his thoughts on young Canadian superstars Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen.

As Bublé prepares for the launch of his latest album, the artist reveals to W5 his life’s greatest desire – to be a good father – and shares his plan to treat his time differently, so that he can be present with his new family.

Then, in the second story of the evening, W5 revisits the cult-like Church of Jesus Christ Restored, which has flown under the radar in Ontario for more than 40 years. As members live under the allegedly violent control of their proclaimed prophet, W5’s Victor Malarek speaks with two former followers who are speaking out about their experiences with the sect.

W5 also airs Sundays at 5 p.m. ET on CTV, and Fridays at 10 p.m. ET on CTV Two. W5 can also be seen on Investigation Discovery on Tuesdays at 11 p.m. ET, and Wednesdays at 3 a.m. ET, 6 a.m. ET and 12 noon ET;and on demand at CTVNews.ca/W5, the CTV Mobile channel on Bell Mobile TV, and through video on demand partners, such as Bell Fibe TV (visit CTV.ca for local listings).
