Michael Buble: I Just Like Good Music, Especially Holiday Music

Posted: Updated:

For the third year running, singer Michael Bublé will host a Christmas special on NBC, and he'll gladly tell you why the tradition means so much to him.

"It's really simple," he said. "Mom and dad loved this (time of year) a lot and made Christmas special, and the fact that I can be invited into people's homes all over the world to be a part of something that's so special to them is a huge honor to me."

While Bublé will bring in the holiday spirit via song on his special, his parents had a different approach.

"Just like most here who celebrate it, (they had) a lot of love — a lot of love and joy," he explained on the Today show. "Magical is the world; they made it magical. They made it exciting and fun and so interactive. That's what I want to recreate for my family."

Michael joins Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.
