Zach Sobiech, the aspiring young artist who recorded “Clouds,” an inspirational song which dealt with his battle against a rare and terminal form of cancer, has succumbed to his illness.
Sobiech, who was just 18, finally lost his battle this week with Osteosarcoma, a bone cancer. But not before his song went viral and turned the youngster into a global role model for others battling serious illness.
Sobiech’s friends had a common wish to see “Clouds” hit one million views before he passed away. When Billboard reported on Sobiech and his brave battle last December, "Clouds" was closing-in on 300,000 views on YouTube. Today, the track has clocked-up almost 3.66 million hits.
