Singer and father-of-two Michael Bublé has revealed he almost quit his career while his son Noah received cancer treatment.
For the first time, singer Michael has opened up about his four-year-old son Noah’s battle with cancer and how he almost quit his career entirely to be with his son.
Speaking to the Herald Sun Michael said simply: ‘I’ve been to hell.’
He continued: ‘I truly thought I’d never come back to music. Family is what matters. The health of my children is No.1.’
Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer hepablastoma in 2016 and has been receiving treatment for it since.
When the news broke Michael cancelled all of his scheduled gigs and performances so that he could be with his wife and children.
In his interview with the Herald Sun, Michael also revealed he rarely speaks about Noah’s whole journey, as it is still too raw.
He said: ‘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.’
Thankfully, in April last year the Buble family confirmed that Noah was in recovery and was responding to treatment. By December they revealed that he was ‘doing very well’ and that Christmas was going to be particularly special that year.
Since Noah’s battle Michael says he has a new found perspective on life and he now really knows his priorities.
The singer’s fans will be delighted to hear that Michael has rekindled his love of music and that he’ll be channelling his experience through some new material.
