The Canadian crooner rode through Los Angeles singing some of his biggest hits like “Haven’t Met You Yet,” “Everything,” and “It’s a Beautiful Day” as well as a new song from his upcoming album, “Love You Anymore.” The pair shared some lighthearted moments as they traveled along, which included picking up Corden’s dad, Malcolm, who had a scat battle with Bublé via his saxophone. The senior Mr. Corden really held his own and impressively changed Bublé’s former negative opinion of the instrument.
The conversation took a serious turn when Corden addressed Bublé’s young son Noah’s 2016 cancer diagnosis (when he was just three-years-old). When asked to talk about what happened, Bublé became emotional, wiping a tear as he struggled to speak. He said, “It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it because it’s so painful to talk about. We got the diagnosis and that was it, man, my whole life ended.”
He went on to explain how he and his wife’s entire families all came together during Noah’s treatment and he stayed strong for his wife and their son throughout the unthinkable battle. It was only after the tumor removal and chemo was done, Bublé said he “fell,” and his wife picks him up now. And when Noah, who is now five, talks to him about super heroes like Spiderman he tells him, “Spiderman’s amazing. Superman’s amazing. But, they’re fake. They’re not real. You’re a super hero. You’re my hero. My real super hero.”
Bublé put his career on hold throughout Noah’s treatment and recovery. His tenth studio album called Love will be released on Nov. 16. He released the album’s lead single “When I Fall in Love,” on Sept. 27.
The Grammy-winning singer looked into the car camera and made a heartfelt plea to viewers, asking people sitting on the couch to “call” because “there’s hope, and treatments, and medicines that haven’t been discovered and will be discovered because of you.”
