This could easily be the most moving celebrity shout-out of all time.
Zach Sobiech, 17, inspired millions with his cancer fight and the farewell song he penned, "Clouds."
Now, a slew of celebrities are showing their support for the brave teenager (he's been diagnosed with osteosarcoma) with a tribute video set to his song, in an effort to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for childhood cancer.
Among the stars featured in the new video, which airs on Rainn Wilson's SoulPancake YouTube channel: Ashley Tisdale, Colbie Caillat, Anna Faris, Jason Mraz, Sara Bareilles, Jenna Fischer, The Lumineers, Rachel Bilson, Ed Helms, Phillip Phillips and more.

The last year has been the most challenging – and rewarding – of Phillip Phillips's life.
His joyful journey on Season 11 of American Idol – which he won in an emotional finale on May 23 – is something "I never thought would happen," Phillips, 21, tells PEOPLE.
It almost didn't: At the same time the gravel-voiced Georgia guitar player was following his music dreams on Idol, he was privately coping with a kidney disorder that often left him in excruciating pain – and sometimes wondering if he could continue with the show.

After his long run on American Idol, you might expect winner Phillip Phillips to give anything for some rest – but as the small town singer puts it himself, it's possible to have too much of a good thing.
"I still love to sleep, but it's been kind of hectic," Phillips, 21, told reporters on Wednesday of his recovery process following the surgery he had earlier this month to remove kidney stones. "I've kind of been going crazy just looking at the four walls surrounding me."
Although he's finally been able to pick up a guitar again, the crooner says that's about the only activity he's been able to take part in since going under the knife.

Now that he's out of the hospital, Phillip Phillips has some more good news for the fans who voted him to the top on American Idol: He's ready to make music again.
"I'm getting better each day, so that's a good thing," Phillips, 21, who went under the knife earlier this month to remove kidney stones that were too large to pass, tells Associated Press.
"It was tough, you know, those first few days, but I'm getting to where I can pick the guitar back up and write a little bit."
