In response to a beautiful and heart-wrenching cover of her brand new single, “Roar,” superstar singer Katy Perry sent a video recording encouraging Olivia Wise, a fan with brain cancer, to “keep roaring.”
Olivia is a teen from Toronto, whose cover of “Roar” has taken the world by storm. Katy began her shout out by saying, “I just wanted to reach back out to you and tell you that I saw your video and I was very moved, and you sounded great for being in the studio and making it your wish to record that song. I thought that was really cool.”
The 29-year-old went on: “I love you and a lot of people love you, and that”s why your video got to me and moved everybody that saw it. So I just wanted to send you some love and some light and tell you that I”m thinking about you. Thank you so much. Keep roaring.”
Olivia brought courage and strength to the mic, as she sang the hit song without flaw, accompanied by the song”s soft piano and powerful melody. Her cousin, Jeff Kassel reportedly arranged the session with his friend, California-based music producer Jon Levine.
Kassel told the Toronto Star that their entire family has been blown away by the positive response the song had garnered. Watch below, and listen for yourself!
