Michael Buble Makes Surprise Appearance At Honour House Gala

He stepped in to replace Jann Arden, who had to cancel last-minute.

The crowd at a charity gala in Vancouver was disappointed to hear that singer Jann Arden had to abruptly cancel her appearance, but they were more than pleasantly surprised by her last-minute replacement.

Fellow Canadian musician Michael Bublé jumped in to fulfill the entertainment part of the evening, reported The Georgia Straight.

The event benefitted Honour House, which provides a temporary home for Canadian military, veterans, emergency services workers, and their families who are receiving medical treatment in the Vancouver area.

Burnaby-raised Bublé, who is home after a recent world tour, joked that he drove 11 minutes to get to the downtown hotel, said the Straight.

Bublé performed his hit "Everything," the Elvis Presley classic "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You," and also part of Arden's "Insensitive."

Honour House was started by former Vancouver Park Board commissioner Allan De Genova. His daughter, Melissa, is the group's fundraising chair and also a Vancouver city councillor.
