He will be feted at an Ottawa gala, along with Michael J. Fox and Martin Short, three weeks after his wife said their son Noah's treatment was progressing "well."

Michael Buble and his family are set to attend a gala awards show in June in Ottawa where the singer will receive a career tribute.

News Tuesday that the Canadian crooner would get an award during the 25th Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards ceremony comes three weeks after his wife, Luisana Lopilato, told a press conference in Argentina that her son Noah was progressing "well" following his cancer treatment in Los Angeles.

Buble earlier withdrew from hosting duties at the Brit Awards and the Juno Awards to care for his three-year-old son. The cancer diagnosis was first revealed in November.

"We are delighted that Michael Buble and his family are doing so well, and that they will all be joining us at the National Arts Center when we will honor his extraordinary career," Peter Herrndorf, head of the National Arts Centre, said in a statement.

"All of Canada wishes the Buble family the very best, and we’re thrilled they will be here to enjoy the 25th anniversary of the awards," he added.

The Governor General's awards show will also honor fellow Canada-born entertainers Michael J. Fox and Martin Short.
