Michael Vanhevel is a Canadian international performer and recording artist, specializing in the crooners and songbirds of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. His passion, charisma and stunning vocal ability have made him a sought after talent, and those who have seen him perform have been quick to liken him to worldwide giants like Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Michael Buble.
One of his mentors, the late great Canadian legend Howard Cable called him “an absolute star-to-be”, and as well as being a dear friend, wrote Michael a full-length, one man symphony show called “The Best of The Crooners” which toured across Canada.
Juno award nominated, Canadian musician, recording artist and fellow Southwestern Ontario native Emm Gryner has worked with Michael on several occasions and has made note of his “natural charisma and stage presence” and has said that (Michael Vanhevel) “is this generation’s Frank Sinatra”.
