Station seeks 1,000 voices to sing Sobiech's 'Clouds' at Mall of America

KS95 is trying to assemble a choir of 1,000 voices for a special performance of Zach Sobiech's "Clouds" at the Mall of America next month.

The Pioneer Press says the performance of the late Minnesota teen's song will be part of the KS95 for Kids Radiothon Dec. 5.

Organizers of the event are asking choirs, groups and families to come to the mall's rotunda area from 6 to 7 p.m. to create a four-part choir to perform the song.

Sobiech, who was from Lakeland, died on May 20 at the age of 18 from osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. He wrote and performed “Clouds” as a goodbye song to his family and friends, and the video version of the tune went viral on YouTube.

To date the video has more than 8.4 million views.

Earlier this month the Twin Cities Gospel Choir and singer Jearlyn Steele performed the song at the 2013 Dawn of a Dream gala in Minneapolis. The gala is an annual fundraising event organized by Children’s Cancer Research Fund.

The two-day radiothon, which began in 1999, is an annual benefit fundraiser for the Children's Cancer Research Fund and Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare.

KS95 debuted "Clouds" during last year's radiothon on Dec. 6.
