Teen dying with cancer has more things to worry about

With likely just months to live, a Minnesota teenager is making the most of it.

But 17-year-old, Zach Sobiech is not letting that stop him from making his mark in song.

He recently signed with a music giant and now has an upcoming concert.

Perhaps it's a hallmark of truly good music, capturing the listener within the first notes, the first lyric.

No question, Sobiech has done that and more with his song "Clouds."

With nearly 2-million hits on YouTube, it's a dream for any aspiring musician, but this artist does indeed have a higher calling.

For "Clouds" is one but of several songs written as a farewell to family and friends by a teen fighting osteosarcoma.

"So I could be with them all day, even when I'm gone I'll see be with them," says Sobiech.

But what started as a lyrical letter has continued as a poem for people around the world.

"They tell me that, you know, I was an inspiration to them that they could keep fighting, the could keep going," says Sobiech.

"That is, that's honestly unbelievable for me."

But perhaps not as unbelievable to his mother.

Even as the family recently learned his tumors have tripled in size, Sobiech still soars.

Soon with an upcoming concert benefiting osteosarcoma research fund fitting for an artist still capturing the hearts of listeners all over the world.
