Young Woman Stuns Michael Bublé After He Hands Her Mic and She Starts Singing


A 21-year-old college student is an emerging star after her impromptu performance at Madison Square Garden during a Michael Bublé concert.

Erin Bellucci, a junior at the University of Delaware, was thrilled to attend Bublé’s Feb. 20 concert alongside her sister Allison, 24.

Bublé picked Bellucci out of the crowd during the concert and asked her what song she loved to sing.

Bellucci said her go-to shower song was “At Last,” by the famous Etta James.

Allison, who was filming her sister’s interaction with Bublé, encouraged the artist to ask Erin to sing — and he did.

Bublé’s band began to play, and Bellucci, somewhat starstruck at first, began to belt out the famous musical phrase that had the audience instantly on her side.

Bellucci’s natural performer instincts kicked in, and she gave a stunning rendition of the song that left Bublé impressed.

“That was so beautiful,” Bublé told Bellucci. “That might not be your last time here. That was incredible.”

Bublé told the crowd that asking a person to sing during a concert can be a real risk — he never knows what might come out of the person’s mouth.

“This is the truth, don’t think this is some setup thing,” he said. “It’s not set up.”

“There is real horror in this because I never know what’s going to happen. Some nights that doesn’t happen.”

Bellucci’s performance quickly shot her to fame, and her older sister couldn’t be more thrilled.

“She looked back at me all nervous, and then the piano started and she was a star,” Allison told Inside Edition of her sister’s big moment.

“I don’t think I’ll stop smiling about it,” Bellucci said. “It just felt like this is what I’m supposed to be doing right now.”

Bellucci is studying music and plans to go into music education — unless, perhaps, something changes.

“THANK YOU for handing me the mic! I feel so lucky,” Bellucci wrote to Bublé on Twitter. “You have been one of my favorite artists for so long, singing for you was a dream come true.”
