Get your tissues ready, because this story will probably make you cry.

Zach Sobiech is dying. The 17-year-old musician has osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, and he has been given just weeks to live. To say goodbye, Sobiech wrote a incredibly touching song called “Clouds.” Thanks to SoulPancake, Rainn Wilson’s media company, a group of celebrities have come together to sing his song in tribute to him.

This is for you.” Musicians Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Sara Bareilles, The Lumineers and Tyler Hilton all make an appearance, happy to sing Sobiech’s song for him. Wilson also brought in some of his “The Office” costars, as well as Ashley Tisdale, Rachel Bilson and Sarah Silverman, to take part in the video.
