Less than a week after announcing on Facebook his son Noah has cancer, Michael Bublé has cancelled his upcoming performance at the BBC Music Awards, scheduled for December 12.
The cancellation was announced by BBC DJ Steve Wright. BBC Music Director Bob Shennan said, “We send Michael and his family our very best wishes.”
The singer is also scheduled to attend the Brit Awards in February and Juno Awards in April. As of now, there has not been word if he will attend.
Following the announcement Friday, the “Nobody But Me” singer’s sister-in-law told an Argentina TV station that Noah was not suffering from leukemia. “Michael and my sister will publish more statements and I can’t say any more, but it’s not leukemia or the central nervous system as people are saying… that’s all I can say.”
The Grammy Award winner and his wife Luisana Lopilato told US Weekly “they’re staying positive and Noah is a fighter,” and that they have been “inundated with kind wishes today, and that’s really helping.”
