Michael Bublé has “no plans to retire” as he dismisses rumours
He’s known for his melodious voice and for bringing along the Christmas cheer, but Michael Bublé broke many hearts after it was reported that he will be retiring from music. Thankfully, those rumours have been dismissed.
In an article from the Daily Mail, the media outlet reported that the singer would be quitting his music career to focus on his five-year-old son who is currently battling cancer, but a representative has put an end to those claims.

The 43-year-old will be releasing his album, Love, on November 16 which is why he sat down for an interview with the UK publication, and while discussing his music, he also spoke about the challenges his family has faced after discovering his son has the life-threatening condition.
“This is my last interview,” Bublé told the Daily Mail. “I’m retiring from the business. I’ve made the perfect record and now I can leave at the very top.”
While it does seem as if Bublé has intentions to quit his career, his publicist Liz Rosenberg set the record straight after social media went into a frenzy.
“Michael Bublé has absolutely no plans to retire,” she told INSIDER. “I wasn’t sitting in on the interview, but this must have been taken out of context.”
“Perhaps as he discussed the different emotions he’s been through these last few years, that thought might have gone through his mind.
“I assure you with a new album coming out, TV appearances, and a possible tour, he is not retiring.”
Bublé’s upcoming album, Love, will be the singer's 10th record. He has dedicated it to his well-wishers and fans, who he says have helped him and his family out through this very difficult time.
“On behalf of my family and I, there’s no way that you can know how much it meant to us – how much your prayers, how much your thoughts, how many times you got us through. For me, this is kind of a really small way of being able to thank you, to tell you how much I love you,” Bublé announced.
