Cherry Pick of the Week: Zach Sobiech's Clouds - A Celebrity Tribute
This week's Pick comes courtesy of Soul Pancake, who shared the most moving celebrity tribute I've ever seen. Zach Sobiech lost his life at the age of 17 this May, having suffered for over three years with Osteosarcoma, a rare but terminal bone cancer. Once diagnosed Zach turned to music and just months before his passing he wrote and performed Clouds, a tribute to his friends and family, which raises funds for cancer research to give other children with this form of cancer a hope for a better outcome.
Soul Pancake, a media company set up to encourage thought, civil community and feel good media reached out to their celebrity friends and just weeks before Zach passed they released this celebrity tribute of his song Clouds.
I can't say how much these videos and Zach's story have affected me this week, it could be that Aaron (the eldest Gorgebag is 17 now), it could be Zach's amazing spirit and the heart with which this tribute was composed but I have been touched and I hope you are too - All of that and it's a cracking bloody song.
Let me know what you think.
