“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,” Bublé said during his speech.
“When I woke up this morning, I thought about that because I thought that for all of you people — all of those people who 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,” he continued.
“So thank you so much for that great honour today.”
His friends Priscilla Presley and record producer David Foster watched on as Bublé spoke about the next chapter in his life after his 5-year-old son Noah’s terrifying cancer diagnosis in 2016.
The star also thanked Noah, his 2-year-old son Elias and 3-month-old daughter Vida in his emotional speech.
“My children, who have given me a purpose for life and have made days like this even sweeter … I can truly understand how beautiful the good moments are,” he said.
“My wife, there’s nothing I can really say that can express how I feel about her and what we’ve been through,” Bublé said.
“She is my hero and my rock.”
The ceremony comes just over a week after Bublé announced he is launching the Don’t Believe the Rumors tour in 2019.
His new tour will mark his official return to the stage since Noah’s diagnosis.
“My record being out today and having a star here on the Walk of Fame, I have personally never felt so self-important before,” he said, laughing.
“I think everyone in this business probably struggles with not mixing up who you are with what you do and trying to separate your ego from your spirit.”
