Michael Bublé will make a rare public appearance tonight at the National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa in honour of the 25th Anniversary of the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards. As one of this year’s honourees, the Vancouver native is expected to attend the event with his loving family by his side.It will be Michael’s first public event since stepping away from his career to care for his three-year-old son Noah as he underwent treatment for cancer.
Michael’s fans, who have supported him throughout this difficult time, are sure to be delighted to see the singer return to the spotlight. This year’s NAC celebration runs until June 29 in the nation’s capital and will include a gala performance and a glitzy awards ceremony, at which the “It’s a Beautiful Day” singer will be recognized by the Right Honourable David Johnston.
The award-winning artist isn’t the only Canadian who will be honoured at the ceremony. Michael J. Fox and Martin Short will also be given special tributes.
In November 2016, Michael and his wife Luisana Lopilato cancelled all professional obligations to concentrate on Noah’s cancer treatment. In early April, Luisana gave a positive update on her son’s condition, telling reporters at a press conference in Argentina that Noah was on the road to recovery. "Thank God, my son is well," said the actress, adding, "When things like those that happened to us occur, your take on life changes. It happened to us. Now I value life much more, the now and the today.
