Clark Retirement Community residents, particularly those who starred in an well-recognized lipdub, are feeling good as Canadian singer Michael Bublé has gifted the Grand Rapids senior living community with complimentary tickets to his July 25 concert at Van Andel Arena.

Do you remember their lipdub of Bublé’s hit, “Feeling Good?”

The song was authored by English songwriters Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse for the 1965 Broadway musical “The Roar of the Greasepaint — The Smell of the Crowd.” The musical also produced Tony Bennett‘s cover “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)?”

Bublé did his version of “Feeling Good” — which has also been performed by Nina Simone, The Pussycat Dolls (“Feelin’ Good”) and George Michael, among others — for his 2005 album “It’s Time.”

In 2011, the residents of Clark and film and video students from Grand Valley State University produced their version in a tribute to Bublé’s song. The video went viral.

The clip has generated more than 1.4 million views on YouTube and Vimeo, and received media coverage across the U.S. on shows such as ABC’s “Good Morning America” and the syndicated “Inside Edition” and in Canada and the United Kingdom.

Bublé loved it and mentioned that publicly.

Fast forward three years: Bublé and Clark residents get a chance for more feeling good at his concert.

Bublé wanted to make sure Clark Retirement Community was there, and donated 100 complimentary tickets for his Clark friends.

You can bet Clark’s Bublé fan club is thrilled to be there. Life just got a little more vibrant at Clark!

By the way, just to compare, here’s Bublé’s official music video for “Feeling Good.”
