Speaking to Global News Justyn said he knew he wanted to get tickets to see Michael Bublé in concert as soon as he heard the star's tour was coming to Winnipeg.

He bought floor tickets and asked advice from Michael's superfans' on how he could get an opportunity to sing with the star.

“I asked them: ‘What do you guys think it would take to get me to sing with him?’ They said: ‘Oh, we know exactly what you need to do,’ so then they grabbed some poster board out of their bag and grabbed Sharpies and wrote ‘I want to sing’ on it,” Skubovius said.

The 20-year-old Winnipeg native says he normally just sings in church and at weddings, but doesn't sing as his day job.

“I actually just work for a small business and do flooring installations — carpet and tile and that sort of thing. Not singing. I mean, if that opportunity is there, I’d love it, but you never know,” Justyn said.
