Ashley Tisdale, Sarah Silverman and More Celebs Lip-Sync For Dying Teen [VIDEO]
17-year-old Zach Sobiech was diagnosed with an extremely rare bone cancer called osteosarcoma. After his doctor estimated that he only had a year to live, the brave teenager penned a catchy, heartwarming, and uplifting song entitled ‘Clouds’, which instantly became a YouTube hit.

Over 2.5 million people viewed the video for ‘Clouds’. The song’s beautiful lyrics, including “Go up in the clouds because the view’s a little nicer up here, my dear,” inspired ‘The Office’ star, Rainn Wilson, to round up some of his celebrity friends to create a tribute video.

Wilson and Justin Baldoni, who directed a short documentary about Sobeich for his online reality series, ‘My Last Days’ (featured on Wilson’s SoulPancake YouTube channel), got some of Hollywood’s biggest stars involved.

On Monday, ‘My Last Days: Zach Sobiech "Clouds" Celebrity Music Video ‘ was released, with hopes of helping Sobeich spread his message, and to bring awareness to increase support for finding a cure.

Sarah Silverman, Ashley Tisdale, Rachel Bilson, Brian Cranston, Anna Faris, Jason Mraz, Sara Bareilles, Lumineers, Jason DeRulo, Jack McBrayer, and over 20 others filmed videos of themselves lip-syncing to Sobeich’s ‘Clouds’. All of the footage was cut together by Baldoni’s team.
