Michael Bubl� has fans all over the world, and it's not hard to see why. The Canadian crooner has stolen our hearts since his first album, BaBalu, was released in 2001.
Since then, Bubl� has been dominating the music scene, with four Grammy awards and five more nominations. He's known for his enthusiastic performances and sultry voice, and fans wouldn't have it any other way.
Bubl� married his wife, Luisana Lopilato, in 2011. Together, the couple has two children, Noah and Elias.
Tragically, on November 4th, 2016, Michael Bubl�'s three-year-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with cancer. Bubl� and Lopilato both put their lives on hold to take care of their son.
"We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US," Bubl� posted on Facebook "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."
Bubl�, who was set to host the Brit Awards, cancelled all his appearances to be with his family. Four months after Noah's diagnosis, everyone received great news.
Noah was recovering well and his cancer was gone, which left one question for Bubl� fans: when will he decide to come back to show business?
When the good news about Noah's health was revealed, a music insider had some promising words to say about doting dad, Michael.
"This is a sure-fire sign Michael's big return is happening," he said. "He's not going to play hundreds of gigs, he'll ease himself back into it."
But now, fans have a definite return date for their favorite singer. Bubl� announced he will be headlining at the British Summer Time Hyde Park in July 2018. The festival boasts two "fun-filled weekends" with food, music, and other events.
"I can't wait to come over to see my fans in London and play BST Hyde Park for my largest ever UK show! You guys have been patient and I can't thank you enough for all your support," Bubl� said. "And for those of you that haven't seen me live, well... I just haven't met you yet!"
Other performers slated for the festival include Roger Waters and Bruno Mars. We can't wait to see Bubl� back on the big stage, and we're so happy Noah is well enough for it to happen!
