Michael Buble has decided to bow out of hosting next month's Brit Awards in London. A representative for the singer confirmed to HELLO! that the Canadian star has cancelled his appearance on Feb. 22.
While no reason for the cancellation was provided, it is suspected that the Vancouver native’s primary focus has and will continue to be on his son Noah, who is undergoing treatment for cancer.
In November, Michael and his wife Luisana released the following statement on their three-year-old son’s heartbreaking cancer diagnosis: "We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. 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.”
Over the past few months, the couple have devoted all of their time to taking care of Noah and their youngest son Elias, who turns one on Jan. 22.
Michael is still scheduled to host the 2017 Junos in April.
