You also get a chance to be on the receiving end of a wink or a smile from your favorite artist. Heck, you may even get a high five or two.

Or possibly, a brief stint as a guest performer. You never know.

Andrew Zarrillo was lucky enough to experience all of the above.

He was right up front at a Michael Bublé concert.

That alone already makes for a memorable night, right? He had the best view of the stage and the artist, plus he wasn’t in a spot that was overly crowded.

Well, the Canadian singer and songwriter also happened to take notice of Zarrillo and even handed him the microphone at one point!

And what did the lucky fan do?

He did not disappoint.

Zarrillo, surprised as he was, confidently began singing “Fly Me To The Moon” without missing a beat, to which the impressed artist responded by pretending to double over in shock upon hearing Zarrillo’s incredible singing voice.

Those in attendance were beyond themselves with excitement at having a fellow fan enjoy such an epic moment with Michael Bublé.

Immediately, fans began recording Zarrillo’s spontaneous performance all while capturing Bublé on stage clapping, dancing, and urging Zarrillo to continue singing.

Friendly and down to earth, the artist happily let the talented fan sing his heart out, even prompting the audience to continue listening and cheering.

Not that the artist in concert would care if a fan didn’t sound as great as Zarrillo did – after all, concerts are simply for artists and fans to have a great time together. And let’s not forget, Michael Bublé is just that great.

It’s also pretty impressive how, despite being taken by surprise, Zarrillo was cool as can be.

Maybe because singing has always been a passion of his.

The lucky fan is actually a pop jazz singer himself who just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

And like his musical idol, he too loves the classics.

In his YouTube channel, he shares covers of timeless hits like “The Way You Look Tonight”, “I Fall In Love Too Easily”, and “Can’t Help Falling In Love” to name a few.

No wonder he was able to give Michael Bublé and his fellow concert goers more than what they were expecting.

You’re probably thinking it’s all too good to be true.

That’s why Zarrillo also understands how some people may believe the entire scenario was staged.

In the video description, he writes,

“Singer Michael Bublé lets me sing Fly Me To The Moon during his show. The song is most famously covered by Frank Sinatra and written by Bart Howard. Everyone thought it was scripted but it’s a totally impromptu moment!”

What an extraordinary moment to look back on!

Because of Michael Bublé, Zarrillo has quite a wonderful anecdote to share.
