Michael Buble...stopped during a concert by the mom of a 15 year old boy, who wants him to know that her son wants to be a singer. Michael, being the gracious person he is invites the boy onstage to sing with him....the expression on Michael's face as the first few notes escape the boys mouth are absolutely priceless.
