Michael Bublé questioned his career in showbusiness all together following his five-year-old son, Noah’s heart-rending struggle with liver cancer in 2016.
Now, the 43-year-old jazz singer has revealed there’s a single on his 10th studio album, Love, sparked from his young son’s cancer battle that he will not perform again in the near future as it’s ‘too painful.’
Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph this week, the Canadian crooner, whose son is currently in remission confessed he only sang the emotive single, ‘Forever Now,’ once in a demo after he penned it.

Michael explained he showed the demo to music mogul, David Foster, 68, and his right-hand-man, Jochem van der Saag and the pair said the song was the ‘best he’s ever done,’ according to the publication.
‘I played them four or five other songs and they said,’No record this one, it’s the best thing you’ve ever done,’ Michael said.
‘I called the record label and said I wanted to put I Get A kick Out Of You on the record instead because Forever Now was too painful. They talked me into it, they said I didn’t have to sing it.

‘At this point right now there’s no way I’m singing it. Maybe I will some day,’ he said.
Meanwhile just weeks after Michael threatened to end his music career, he announced his 36-date, sixth world tour last week on top of the release of his 10th studio album.
The jazz singer’s record Love (stylised as a heart emoji) drops on November 16 and features standards like Edward Heyman & Victor Young’s 1952 classic, When I Fall in Love.

‘I’m retiring from the business,’ Michael announced to Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine on October 13. ‘I’ve made the perfect record and now I can leave at the very top.’
Michael ended his career hiatus after his five-year-old son Noah’s liver cancer was in remission, but it was a jam session with his band a year ago convinced him to continue.
‘It wasn’t as straightforward as, “My son’s recovered, I should make an album,”‘ Bublé explained.

‘One, I felt a debt of gratitude, deeper than I can explain, to the millions of people all over the world who prayed for us and showed us compassion. That gave me faith in humanity.
‘Two, because I love music and feel I can continue the legacy of my idols. And three, because if the world was ending – not just my own personal hell but watching the political turmoil in America and watching Europe break up – there’s never a better time for music.’
