Zach Sobiech’s ‘Clouds’ Tops iTunes Charts 7 Years After His Passing

Seven years after his death to cancer at age 18, Zach Sobiech has returned to the top of the iTunes chart.

The Star Tribune reports that the Minnesota teen whose music and battle with osteosarcoma touched people around the globe, took the number one spot on Sunday.

The song hit the top of the charts just two days after the release of the Hollywood movie of the same name that is based on Sobiech’s life premiered on Disney+.

The single first reached the top of iTunes in 2013, shortly after the Stillwater-area teenager’s death. The profits from the continued success of the song will be added to the $2 million already raised for cancer research via Sobiech’s namesake foundation.

The YouTube video of the song has been viewed more than 15 million times.
