Canadian crooner Michael Bublé has pulled out of the Brit Awards in order to care for his sick son.
ET Canada confirmed reports that the Vancouver- native will no longer be presenting at the February awards show in order to be with his three-year-old son, Noah, who was diagnosed with cancer last year.
In a statement to ET Canada in November, Bublé addressed Noah’s illness:
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the U.S.”
“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.”
