Default Teen behind viral hit 'Clouds' dies of bone cancer weeks after celeb-filled tribute v

Zach Sobiech, the Minnesota teenager who wrote the viral hit song "Clouds" during his fight with bone cancer, died at 18 years old on Monday morning.

Sobiech died at his home surrounded by his family and girlfriend, according to a post by his mother on Sobiech’s CaringBridge page. Sobiech was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, when he was 14, and was told by his doctors in June 2012 that he had months or possibly a year to live.

In December of 2012, he released “Clouds,’’ his moving song about facing death, which has received nearly three million views on YouTube. Earlier this month, a group of celebrities including Bryan Cranston, Anna Faris, Sarah Silverman, Ed Helms, Jenna Elfman, and Jason Mraz took part in a tribute video for Sobiech in which they lip-synched to "Clouds."

“It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of our son Zachary David Sobiech,’’ the family said in a statement. “Our family has been blessed not only by his amazing presence in our lives, but also by the love and support of our family and friends and by so many people in the community. In particular we'd like to thank those people who listened with their hearts and helped Zach bring his message and his music to the world.”

I had never heard of him or seen the song. Sad to see him pass. Hopefully whatever is out there post mortem is beautiful and he is some form of peace.
