The Sun reports that Louis was scheduled to perform his latest single Two Of Us as part of the BBC’s Comic Relief live coverage on Friday but has since pulled out of the fundraiser.
The song is a tribute to the singer’s late mother and includes the lyrics: ‘You’ll never know how much I miss you. The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead.’
Johannah died in 2016 at the age of 43 after a year-long battle with the leukemia.
Louis told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat that playing the song to his younger sisters Felicite, Charlotte, Daisy and Phoebe was a ‘tough one’.

TWO OF US LYRICS…
‘It’s been a minute since I called you
‘Just to hear the answerphone
‘Yeah, I know that you won’t get this
‘But I’ll leave a message so I’m not alone
‘This morning I woke up still dreaming
‘With memories playing through my head
‘You’ll never know how much I miss you
‘The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead’
‘Me as their big brother – if I can sing those words it’ll hopefully help them too,’ he explained, while also admitting he will be ‘drifting off thinking of mum’ while performing the song.
Louis previously discussed the song to House Of Solo magazine, admitting he avoided writing it for a while for fear of not getting it right.
He said: ‘I just feel like, musically, I almost needed to get this song off my chest.
‘People say writing is a part of therapy. In a way, I feel like I’d been avoiding writing this song because I knew I only had one chance to get it right.
‘I don’t mean to be too soppy but if Two of Us can help just one other person who’s going through the tough time I went through, that would make me really happy.’
Louis has been left ‘devastated and distraught’ by the death of his sister, the Sun reported on Thursday, and praised his sister as ‘loveable, caring, bright and beautiful’ last night, sources close to the One Direction singer told the paper.
It is understood police found no signs of drugs at the address. They say they are in the process of informing next of kin.
The death of Félicité — known as Fizzy — is being treated as ‘unexplained’ at this stage.

Louis, 27, was working in London on Wednesday when police informed him of his sister’s death. Other family members, in Doncaster, have also been notified.
The X Factor judge was extremely close to his sister. They regularly saw each other in London.
A family source told the paper: ‘Félicité was an absolutely adored young woman who was loved by Louis and her whole family. They are all totally devastated, as you can imagine.
‘She had so many friends and was such a positive happy person. It’s a massive loss to the world. She was a loveable, caring, bright, passionate, popular and beautiful young lady.’
Louis appeared on The X Factor three days after his mother’s death in 2016 for an emotional performance of his track Just Hold On with Steve Aoki.
He was supported by his One Direction bandmates for his first solo performance away from the band, while X Factor head judge Simon Cowell, who put the group together during their time on the show, told him:
‘The bravery of what you’ve done. I respect you as an artist, as a person and your mum was so proud of you and she was so excited for the performance. She’s looking down on you tonight.’
