May 4 (UPI) -- Michael Bublé will return to the spotlight in June after spending months caring for his elder son.

The 41-year-old Canadian singer will accept the National Arts Centre Award in Ottawa on June 28 following 3-year-old son Noah's battle with cancer, the center announced in a press release this week.

"We are delighted that Michael Bublé and his family are doing so well, and that they will all be joining us at the National Arts Centre when we will honor his extraordinary career," center president Peter A. Herrndorf said.

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

Bublé will be honored at a ceremony 28 at Rideau Hall, and at a gala performance June 29 at the center. The award recognizes "recent exceptional work by a performing artist."

"Michael Bublé is an exceptional singer and songwriter whose voice and stage presence have captured the hearts of audiences across Canada and around the world," Herrndorf said. "We are very happy to honor him."

Bublé announced son Noah's cancer diagnosis in November. His wife, Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato, said at a press conference in April that the toddler is now "well" and recovering from the ordeal.

"My son's recovery is a long process as you all know and he has to continue with checkups. But we are very happy. We are looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow," she said.

Bublé and Lopilato married in 2011, and also share 15-month-old son Elias. The singer last released the album Nobody But Me in October, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
