Olivia Wise posted a video of her cover of Katy Perry’s “Roar.” To a slower and piano melody, the video showed the 16-year-olds fight against brain cancer.
She posted the video on October 14, 2013 and within less than two months already has nearly 2.5 million views. Since the video went viral, the song is now sold on iTunes and Katy Perry even responded to Olivia with a video.
Olivia’s fight with cancer ended last week when she passed away. However, her family keeps her legacy alive with the LivWiseFund which supports three organizations: Children Living with Brain Tumors 60%, Brain Tumor Research 20%, and POGO – Paediatric Oncology Group Ontario 20% PACT – Palliative Advanced Care Team.
