Michael Bublé became emotional while discussing his son’s cancer diagnosis.
The 43-year-old struggled to discuss his 5-year-old son Noah Bublé’s cancer battle during a special “Carpool Karaoke” segment with James Corden for a “Stand Up To Cancer” telethon that aired in the United Kingdom on Friday.
“It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it, because it’s so painful to talk about, but, obviously, we got the diagnosis, and that was it, man,” he said. “My whole life ended.”
Noah Bublé was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016, when he was only 3.
The singer said he relied on his wife, Luisana Lopilato, for strength towards the end of their son’s battle.
“I’m not OK,” he said. “When this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive. When they got it out and the chemo was done … I fell. I just fell. My wife picks me up now.”
Noah Bublé is now in remission.
Michael Bublé urged everyone to donate to the organisation to help cancer research.
The rest of the video featured Michael Bublé singing some old hits and new songs, as well as engaging in a scat battle with Corden’s father.
“Michael Bublé has absolutely no plans to retire,” Liz Rosenberg, his publicist, told INSIDER. “I wasn’t sitting in on the interview, but this must have been taken out of context.”
