Singer Michael Buble says he’s “never met anyone as brave” as his son Noah who recently celebrated his eight birthday after battling cancer
Michael Buble has praised his son Noah on his eighth birthday, saying he has ‘never met anyone as brave’ after the youngster’s brave battle with cancer.
The singer, who quit music for two years following his son’s diagnosis said his child was his “hero”.
The eight-year-old was given the all-clear in 2017 having being diagnosed with liver cancer aged just three in November 2016.
Having been ‘to hell’ watching his son’s ordeal Michael celebrated Noah’s birthday on Instagram writing: Instagram : “Today my hero turns 8!
“I’ve never met anyone as brave…
“I’ve never known anyone as kind or as good-hearted…
“And I’ll never truly be able to express how proud I am, or how deep and profound Mommy’s and my love is for you.
“You’ve blessed our lives in every way.
“We hope God blesses you on your special day.
“Happy Birthday, Noah B.”
Michael and wife Luisana Lopilato are parents to Noah, Elias, 5, and daughter Vida, 3.
Following their son’s all-clear diagnosis Michael wrote a song – called Forever Now – about his children.
However the singer previously admitted that he had thought he would not make another album after he and Luisana announced their son was ill.
Opening up about Noah’s shock cancer diagnosis to Australian publication Herald Sun in 2018, the jazz musician said: “You know what? Hell seems like a really nice place to vacation compared to where we’ve been.”
While the Canadian singer did not hesitate to put his career on hold indefinitely to care for Noah — industry executives weren’t keen on his decision.
“I had different promoters telling me, ‘Listen Mike. This might be over for you. People forget quick. They do. You step away and they move on to the next thing,'” he said.
Speaking to USA Today, Buble admitted: “I don’t even think about my career. It’s going to sound sloppy, but I remember sitting there and thinking, ‘Why the f— am I worried about all this s—?”
However, despite his career challenges Michael’s family became his sole focus as they rallied together to get Noah through treatment.
Speaking to The Sun, the crooner admitted that he wasn’t sure if he would ever return to the industry following the devastating news about Noah.
“When I went away and went through our family stuff with our son, I never knew if I was coming back.”
However after putting his career on hold to care for Noah, Michael returned in 2018 with his 10th album, called Love.
He also returned to live performing with a sold-out show in London’s Hyde Park, where he was joined by Noah on stage.
