During a star-studded evening in 2008, Michael Bublé and Blake Shelton performed a duet version of the song “Home” at a special concert in honor of songwriter and music producer David Foster, which took place at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
The laid-back performance began with only Bublé and Foster on stage and featured a lot of banter that lead into the song. This added to the laid-back ambiance that was already there at the tiny event.
But without any prior notice, Bublé’s performance abruptly morphed into a duet when country artist Shelton came out of nowhere and joined him and Foster onstage. Their performance that evening is one that will not soon be forgotten.
The song was written by Bublé, Alan Chang, and Amy Foster-Gillies, who is the daughter of Foster. The Canadian artist Michael Bublé made his first performance of the song in 2005, while Blake Shelton subsequently sang his version of the song in 2007.
During the one-off performance, the two talented artists sang a duet of the same song together, something certainly no one anticipated, with Foster even playing the piano.
Overall, it was a flawless duet between two musicians, which demonstrates that musical genres are not definite, and that songs may actually appeal to several audiences at the same time. In addition, it is unfair to confine an artist to only one particular musical style.
When the song was through, the crowd showed their appreciation by giving them a hearty round of applause, which was well deserved.
The two performers were visibly overjoyed by their unplanned collaboration, as seen by the fact that they congratulated one other by shaking hands and giving each other brotherly hugs.
