ichael Bublé spoke in public Wednesday for the first time since announcing his three-year-old son Noah’s cancer diagnosis in November.
The British Columbia-born Canadian singer appeared in Ottawa to accept a medal for the 2017 Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards, wire service The Canadian Press reported.
“I stand here truly humbled that I have been allowed to be one of your musical representatives, and that you would choose to bestow this honor upon me during what has been an emotional and difficult time for my family,” Buble said.
His son has been receiving treatment in Los Angeles. In April, Buble’s wife Luisana Lopilato said, “Thank God, my son is well.”
Buble did not give any updates on his son’s illness Wednesday, but he did speak about his family.
“My entire life has been inspired by how my family has made me feel,” he said. “There are no words to describe how I feel about you. Sometimes ‘I love you’ just isn’t enough because what I feel is so much more.”
