After a tough few years since son's cancer diagnosis, Michael Buble tears up as he receives Hollywood Walk of Fame star
Michael wasn't the only one getting emotional. Luisana also was glimpsed dabbing her eyes when her husband began speaking about their tiny tots — Noah, Elias, and Vida
Michael Buble has two very magical things going for him at the moment. The same day that his latest album, Love' was released, the singer got his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame! Both incidents taking place this Friday, it was an atmosphere of music, success, and most importantly, love — as he and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, both teared up during his speech, where he paid tribute to his family.
Among a slew of several different 'thank you's, the 43-year-old singer was all praises about his wife, who was sitting in the audience, as he shared that "there's nothing I can really say that can express how I feel about her and what we've been through. She is my hero and my rock."
As Michael wiped his eye mid-speech, he wasn't the only one getting emotional. Luisana also was glimpsed dabbing her eyes when her husband began speaking about their tiny tots — five-year-old Noah, two-year-old Elias, and Vida, who is all of three months now. He said the children "have given me a purpose for life and have made days like this even sweeter because I can truly understand how beautiful the good moments are."
The Canadian made some genuinely thoughtful insights in his speech, as he concluded saying: "The longer I live, the more I realize that love isn’t free. Love has a great cost. The more you love, the more you hurt, the greater the chance of suffering and pain. And when I woke up this morning, I thought about that, because I thought that for all of you people – all of those people that have loved me and supported me through the good times and the bad, I would risk that love a million times over for all of you. So, thank you so much for this great honor today."

Michael and Luisana also posed for several shots, on his star, and sharing kisses with each other on the red carpet. On the list of people he posed with were also Priscilla Presley and David Foster, both of whom he has worked with in the past. There was also Leron Gubler, the President and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber Of Commerce, the organization behind the Walk Of Fame stars, and Tom Carson, who used to be the president and the COO of RCA Records and is currently the co-chairman and COO of Warner Bros Records. Michael's most recent album 'Love' was produced by David at the Frank Sinatra-founded label Reprise Records, which was taken over by Warner Bros Records for a period of time.
As for the Hall of Fame event, Michael, who adores every bit of showmanship, decided to do a push up over his star when he was alone on the carpet.
On the other hand, Priscilla Prestley also gave a warm speech in honor of Michael as he was the one who recorded the old 1950s standard 'Fever' which was overlaid as a duet with her late husband, Elvis Presley.
'It’s on an album called 'If I Can Dream', which went number one, and I think you were part of that. You definitely helped with that," she said. "Do you know, it knocked my record out of the number one position?" Michael told her, and after a bit of back-and-forth, she reminded him that the success of 'If I Can Dream' was a number one "For you too!" While she was explaining how she got the idea for the duet, Priscilla accidentally said Elvis when she meant Michael, then teased Michael: "You'd like that, right?"
