Michael Bublé, 41, may have decided to momentarily shun the limelight to focus on his son’s health, but it did not deter him from doing his share for the BBC Children in Need televised fundraiser for U.K.’s underprivileged. Michael’s 3-year-old son is currently fighting cancer.
Little Noah, on the other hand, has inspired another group led by Wayne Swift, to enlist the support of his Facebook friends and acquaintances to come up with a song that they then recorded to help children with cancer in the U.K. Wayne has performed in many places and has been a Michael Buble tribute act for the past eight years.

It was apparent, as Michael sang, that his personal circumstance was tearing him apart, yet he delivered one of his most heart-stirring performances that reverberated on Twitter sphere.

The Canadian singer thereafter announced that he and his wife, Argentine actress and model Luisana Lopilato, have put their careers on hold to monitor their son’s treatment and progress in fighting cancer. The Grammy Award-winning singer’s mentor David Foster echoed the couple’s statement that Michael may not sing until his son gets well.
