Michael Bublé has pulled out of his appearance at next month’s BBC Music Awards, following the news that his son, Noah Bublé, was diagnosed with liver cancer. The singer announced last Friday (November 4) that he and his wife,  Luisana Lopilato, are taking a break from their careers and focusing on the health of their child.

“We send Michael and his family our very best wishes,” said the broadcaster’s music director Bob Shennan in the official statement published by the BBC.

The official awards show lineup includes the likes of  Emeli Sande, the 1975, Zara LarssonLukas Graham and more. Bublé is also scheduled to host the Brit Awards in February and the Juno Awards next April, though it’s unclear if he’ll choose to pull out of those events as well.

The BBC Music Awards will air live on Dec. 12 in London.
