Okay, so apparently I’ve been living under a rock for a week now, at least. I’ve totally not heard of Olivia Wise, of Toronto.
Olivia had brain cancer. Near the end of November, her family brought her to a sound studio where she sang Kate Perry‘s album cover song, “Roar”. On YouTube it has gone viral. Over a million viewers! On Monday, I was sad to hear, she passed away. Since then, the family has put the song up on iTunes, sending all proceeds going towards brain research and kids living with cancer, through a fund called the “Liv Wise fund”.
Rest in peace, Olivia, and thank you for the gift!
