Connecticut Woman Stuns Crowd at Michael Bublé’s MSG Show
In what could have been a scene from the movie A Star is Born, a Connecticut woman got the chance of a lifetime Wednesday night during a Micheal Bublé concert at Madison Square Garden.
The journey for Erin Bellucci from West Hartford reportedly started back in November when her sister Allison, who works at a PR Firm in New York City, took her to one of her clients — a restaurant that was looking to start doing live music. Knowing how much her sister loved music, Allison informed everyone at the restaurant that her sister was a great singer. Erin, who attends the University of Delaware actually got her chance to sing there when she came back to Connecticut during Thanksgiving break.
On the night that Erin made her debut at the restaurant, there was a group of people there that were part of Micheal Bublé's staff. A woman approached her and offered her tickets to his show in February.
Of course she accepted, and to both she and her sister's surprise, the tickets were front row. During the show, Bublé started talking about people's favorite shower songs, and once again, Allison yelled out that "my sister can sing".
Bublé couldn't help but notice Erin in the first row, and asked her her favorite song to sing in the shower. "At Last" was her go-to song, and Micheal handed her the microphone, and to his surprise and tp the surprise of the capacity crowd, Erin belted out the Etta James classic. Of course, her sister Allison was there to capture the whole thing on video:
Since the show Wednesday night, the video has gone viral, billboard.com actually wrote about Erin in a review of the show, and as luck would have it, Ryan Seacrest was in the audience and featured the video he took of Erin on his show "Live with Ryan and Kelly."
Erin is no stranger to media attention. According to we-ha.com, she gained National recognition when she was at Hall High School as the kicker for the boys varsity football team. She was even good enough to make the All Star game where she did what she does best, she kicked an extra point, and sang the National Anthem. How do you like that.
