Music Monday

I followed this kid's story while he was sick, and this beautiful song that he wrote when he realized that he was going to die. The song has touched so many people and done many great things (when you download it from iTunes, the money is donated to a fund in his name that is in turn donated to cancer research at the hospital that was treating him).

Zach passed away in May, 2013. This video is a tribute concert from December, 2013 where 5,000 people gathered at the Mall of America to sing his song. Beautiful.

More info on the day can be found by reading this article.

Recently, Anderson Cooper named Zach one of 2013's Extraordinary People. I'm sure you can find the segment online. It was really moving.

I figured this was a good video to wrap up 2013's Music Mondays.

And if you love the song as much as I do, go ahead and download it.
