American Idol Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson really has something to sing about right now. Last week, some of the brave cancer patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital teamed up with on-staff nurses and doctors to create a moving lip-synching video to Kelly’s hit song “Stronger.” The tough kiddos held up signs with words like “hope” and “fighter” and danced and sang along to Kelly’s anthem, which declares, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
The vid became an instant viral sensation, with over 1.7 million views in less than two weeks.
It certainly got Kelly’s attention, because just a few days later, she made her own video before heading to the stage to perform, thanking the patients and staff for their inspirational video. “That was so amazing,” she said. “It made my day… I can’t wait to meet you. I think that was the coolest thing to be able to watch. And I’m not going to cry because I’ve got to go perform right now, but it was just so beautiful so thank you so much.”
According to TIME, Kelly’s representative at RCA Records has said that “nothing is confirmed yet,” but Kelly indeed “really wants to visit” the little ones who made this video happen. Let’s cross our fingers that it’ll happen!
