Seems like Michael Bublé is on Santa’s nice list this holiday season. The soulful crooner is just finishing up his international To Be Loved concert tour with $106 million in tickets sales for 2014. Multi-Grammy-Award-winning Bublé is completing his 157th performance of his sold-out world tour this week in London as well as hosting his fourth annual Christmas special "Christmas in New York with Michael Bublé," which has been hailed as the best holiday special of the year. With his "Christmas" album selling more than 9.5 million copies worldwide, it seems Bublé has a lot to be thankful for this Christmas. In 2014, Bublé sold 992,637 tickets to his To Be Loved tour and performed 18 sold-out shows in just the U.K. alone.

In the U.S., the "Christmas" CD has remained in the top 10 for the last several weeks, was certified triple platinum and has sold more than 3.5 million copies since its release four years ago.
