Michael Bublé performs Stay Homas' 'Gotta Be Patient' for Covid-19 fundraiser
Superstar comes together with Barenaked Ladies and Sofia Reyes for rendition of Catalan band's song
Many musicians in Catalonia and around the globe have come out to do their part as the world attempts to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic, and some of Canada's most loved artists are no different.
Airing on Sunday April 26, "Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble" brought together many of the country's best singers to raise money for frontline workers and food banks that have been gravely impacted by the coronavirus crisis.
And among those was Michael Bublé, who joined forces with the Barenaked Ladies and Mexican singer-songwriter Sofía Reyes to perform a cover of Barcelona band Stay Homas' "Gotta Be Patient," also known as "Confination VI."

This wasn't the first time Bublé expressed his admiration for the Catalan trio, and in fact, on March 22 he even Tweeted a video of Klaus Stroink, Guillem Boltó, and Rai Benet performing that same song from their Eixample rooftop, with Judit Nedermann joining them on the phone.
A friend from Argentina sent this to me. I don’t know who they are but it put a smile on my face and I hope it does the same for you! If you know who this is, please let me know in the replies! pic.twitter.com/CFDEBuFvy0— Michael Bublé (@MichaelBuble) March 22, 2020
What began as a lockdown-inspired pastime for three professional musicians living together unexpectedly catapulted them to success, and while the Stay Homas seem to be a bit taken aback by this sudden turn of events, they also appear to be pleasantly surprised by their group's newfound popularity.
