A video uploaded Friday shows a cancer-stricken 12-year-old boy recording a beautiful rendition of Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.”
Justin Townsend, who is battling a rare form of brain cancer, recorded the song last month at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis where he is undergoing treatment, according to WXYZ.
Now Townsend, who was diagnosed in September with the cancer, is gaining notoriety online. At the time of publication, the video of the recording had just over 4,000 views on YouTube.
“I have chills and close to tears,” one individual commented on Youtube, “So beautiful.”
“Justin! That was beautiful! You are so awesome!” wrote another.
