by ABC Digital
(SEATTLE) -- A video featuring young cancer patients and staff at Seattle Children's Hospital lip-synching to Kelly Clarkson's hit "Stronger" has become an online sensation, attracting over half a million views in five days. Kelly raved about it on Twitter and posted a link, and now she's also sent a personal video message to the hospital thanking them for a great job.
A new video posted Wednesday by the hospital shows the patients and staff watching the video message from Kelly on a laptop. "That was so amazing," Kelly says. "It made my day, I know it's making everybody else's day online. Everybody's been watching it and everybody's been talking about it and it's so beautiful and it's so meaningful."
Kelly adds, "I just can't wait to meet you. I think that was the coolest thing to be able to watch. And I'm not gonna cry 'cause I gotta go perform right now, but it was just so beautiful, so thank you so much!"
The rest of the video shows the kids and staff reacting to Kelly's message: one talks about how much she loves "Stronger," while another wants Kelly to do a concert for them.
