Beverly Delich Celebrates Launch of New Memoir About Guiding Michael Bublé to Stardom with Events in Lower Mainland

Beverly Delich worked tirelessly as Michael Bublé’s manager in the early days of his career and was instrumental in his rise to international stardom.

In 1993, fifty-three-year-old Beverly Delich discovered the then-unknown eighteen-year-old singer Michael Bublé, in a talent contest she was coordinating in Vancouver. She went on to become his manager and moved with him to Toronto and then L.A. as he tried to break into a tough, unforgiving business.

Come Fly with Me is Beverly’s vivid, behind-the-scenes story of the making of a modern-day superstar. She recounts their journey together from early days when she and Bublé struggled to get bookings, to the giddiness of hobnobbing with musical royalty, to the pivotal and sometimes heartbreaking decisions that would ultimately take Bublé to the top and found Beverly on the sidelines.

This memoir not only unravels the never-told tale of Bublé’s success, but is a story of sacrifice and loyalty, a story of a strong independent woman who devoted close to a decade of her life to guide a talented, mercurial artist to the top of the charts.

BEVERLY DELICH has long been a fixture on Vancouver’s cultural scene, from her years as a cantorial soloist and an entertainment coordinator at the Pacific National Exhibition, to her personal and business partnership with the late Ray Carroll of The Platters, to her current ownership of the Silver Lining Management talent agency.

SHELLEY FRALIC is an experienced journalist and long-time columnist at The Vancouver Sun. She is also the author of several books, including the recent B.C. bestseller, Making Headlines: 100 Years of the Vancouver Sun.

These book signing events are free to attend and all are welcome.
