Cancer patients and nurses in Seattle Children's Hospital perform Kelly Clarkson's song "Stronger"

[Video Link] The pop hit, as performed by patients and nurses in the Hematology/Oncology ward of Seattle Children's Hospital. Not a big fan of Kelly Clarkson's music myself, but I can't help feeling admiration for the staff and people with cancer in this video. Anything that makes you feel stronger during this process is a wonderful thing. A behind-the-scenes video below.

Update: BB reader autark says,

My wife works in Hem/Onc @ Childrens and apparently Clarkson is all cool with this, and broadcast her response to a big screen they set up for the kids to see yesterday.

Oh yeah, and the film maker is/was a patient, he's been getting mobbed by media interviews for the past couple days.

And Clarkson's response is here. Very cool of her.

    1. Thanks for some back-story.  This was so neat to watch on this end.  Such an inspiration, these kids and the medical staff of care givers. 

  2. YAY! I’m so glad someone brought this to your attention, Xeni. I was going to but I procrastinated. I also work at Seattle Childrens and see the bravery of these kids each day. It’s very inspirational.
