Michael BublÃ©âs introduction to the music of the swing era came to him through his grandfather, who filled his grandsonâs ears with the sounds of The Mills Brothers, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and others. As BublÃ© eagerly absorbed the recordings, he began to realize that he wanted to be a singer and that this style of music, virtually foreign to his own generation, was what he wanted to perform.
