Sick Kids Sing Katy Perry's "Roar"

Kids' Katy Perry Hospital Video Goes Viral

Some children at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock are proving that their illnesses can't keep their spirits down. Their lip-sync to Katy Perry's song "Roar" is going viral and racking up fans from around the world, Yahoo! Shine reports. The YouTube video of their performance received 70,000 views in the first day with its empowering message.

Video producer Chris Cammock, a Vermont-based graphic designer and creative director, came up with the idea for the video while working on some pro bono branding projects at the hospital where her brother is employed. At the same time, another hospital employee had the same idea, so in one day, they pulled patients and hospital staff together for the filming.

"It was seriously awesome just seeing these kids light up. A lot of them have cancer and don't have a lot of energy," Cammock says. "I was blown away at the enthusiasm and energy." Watch the video. You'll agree their energy is contagious!

These kids are just awesome! No child should ever have to endure the trauma of extended hospital stays and illness. This facility looks (and acts) a lot like our local facility in Aurora, and I have to say that the excellent staff have a lot to do with the great attitudes these kids have. Yep, I'm in tears too...Wanna just grab all those kiddos and hug the illnesses away!
