Michael Buble has kept audiences smiling for years on NBC, but he’s more than just a musical guest.

He’s had six stand-alone specials on the network in addition to appearances on “Saturday Night Live,” “The Voice,” and “America’s Got Talent.”

Even with all that exposure, he says he’s revealing parts of himself for the first time on his seventh special, titled “Buble!’ airing tonight at 8 p.m. on KOAA.

“I thought this was a really nice chance to sort of share a more intimate glimpse into who I really am,” Buble says.

The Canadian crooner has sold over 60 million albums and collected four Grammy awards, but in 2016, Buble hit the pause button on his career after announcing his young son had liver cancer.

“Everything I ever wanted was wrapped up in fame and fortune and the success of doing what I love, and I realize now that my greatest achievement ever will be my family,” he says.

So he stopped touring.

“Things got very clear. And what I wanted to put back into the universe was love,” Buble explains.

“Love” happens to be the name of Buble’s new album, released after his son’s cancer went into remission.

Now the entertainer wants to offer fans a sincere thank you in the form of his new network special.

“There is no way I can put into words how much the people out there mean to me, and the truth is, what they’ve given me is everything. Everything,” Buble says.
