Michael Bublé has opened up about the life-changing cancer diagnosis of his 4-year-old son, Noah, and of how proud he is of the “superhero” his son has become as he battles the disease.
“I’ve been to hell,” father of two Bublé, 42, recently told the Herald Sun about the past 18 months. “I don’t talk about the whole story, not even to my friends because it hurts too much. It’s my boy. He’s a superhero, he doesn’t need to relive it over and again. But I’ve been to hell. And you know what, hell seems like a really nice place to vacation compared to where we’ve been.”
The treatment has required constant monitoring from Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato who are also raising their other son, 2-year-old Elias and expecting a daughter soon. Understandably, music had to take a back seat.
“I truly thought I’d never come back to music,” Bublé told the Australian outlet. “Family is what matters. The health of my children is No.1. The relationship with my family, my wife, my faith — all of it is easily No. 1.”
However, as Noah’s condition has improved, the singer has been slowly making his way back to the stage to share his experience with his fans. On Saturday, July 7, Bublé performed for 80,000 fans at Dublin’s Croke Park stadium. In addition, he’s also been putting in time in the recording booth, preparing to release an album unlike any he’s ever done before.
“That clarity gave me the opportunity to find love for music again. I’m going to go back to what I was made to do,” says Bublé. “I’m going to come back to a world that needs love and romance and laughter more than it has in a long time. I’m going to be a conduit to that. This is the greatest record I’ve ever made.”
