Velvet-voiced crooner Michael Bublé has understandably put his career on hold to be there for his sick son.
As you may know, Noah Bublé, the 3-year-old son of Canadian singer Michael Bublé and his wife Luisana Lopilato, is battling cancer. The famous parents, who also have a 9-month-old son named Elias, recently confirmed this heartbreaking diagnosis on the singer's Facebook page, saying in a statement:
"We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing."
Musician David Foster confirmed, according to People magazine, that Bublé will not sing again until his child is well, adding, "I'm certain of it." Indeed, Bublé has already canceled a scheduled performance at the BBC Music Awards on December 12.
Every parent understands why the talented singer is putting his family ahead of his career, and if we were able, all of us would do the same. Foster also told Entertainment Tonight Canada, "When this happens, everything shuts down around you. You go inside your little bubble and I don't think he's looking at social media. I'm sure he feels the love from millions of people."
