Despite Michael Buble’s tremendous success as a solo artist, he has always enjoyed teaming up for duets with artists he admires. Whether it be Mariah Carey, Barbra Streisand, Blake Shelton and many others.
For his album “Love”, he wanted to sing with the beautiful voice he heard in the film of the musical The Greatest Showman. That voice belonged to Loren Allred.
The song is called “Help Me Make It Through The Night”, and it spoke to Buble on a personal level.
Although the song was not written as a duet, he thought it would be perfect for one. He explains why in the introduction to the music video, saying:
“My concept had always been so strong. And in my head, it was always a duet, I never heard it as a duet before but I had always seen it as this incredible, sad, but beautiful story of two needy people who just did not have the strength to be alone anymore… I had been watching a movie called ‘The Greatest Showman’… and I realized the actress, it wasn’t her singing, so I frantically started to comb YouTube to find out who this was… and I found Loren Allred!”
The resulting track is simply beautiful. One listener commented, “Michael Bublé and Loren Allred sounded so magical together” and another wrote, “When you have a bad day please just take this song and listen their voices, I guarantee you will feel better.”
