Katy Perry cover: Teen Olivia Wise battling cancer covers Perry's 'Roar'

Olivia Wise is a 16-year-old girl who loves singing with her friends. She likes Katy Perry. And she's dying of an inoperable brain tumor. But one last wish granted her a way to immortalize her voice for her friends and family.

In September, the Toronto girl went to a recording studio to record Katy Perry's "Roar." Reports say in the weeks since she recorded it, her condition has deteriorated, but the fund started in her name has raised nearly $30,000 in support of brain tumor research.

The video is indescribably moving, and further written detail will only trivialize it. Watch the video below.
