Singer Kelly Clarkson calls an inspirational video of Seattle cancer patients singing her song "Stronger" "beautiful."

The American Idol Season 1 winner posted an update on her Twitter account (@kelly_clarkson) late Tuesday praising the video:

"Oh my goodness y'all have to see this! It's beautiful! I can't wait to visit these kids and nurses! It's Seattle Children's Hospital, I believe. God Bless y'all! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihGCj5mfCk8"

Watch the entire video here:

 

Commenters encouraged Clarkson to meet the patients and nurses featured in the video, including a representative from Seattle Children's. 

"Thank you so much for sharing with your fans, Kelly!" wrote @seattlechildren. "We'd love to set up a visit with you and these patients -- either in real life or virtually. It would mean the world to these kids, especially Chris, who envisioned and directed the video. Let us know if you're game"

On Wednesday, Clarkson sent a video message to the children and staff.  Watch it here:

 

KING 5 News talked to the hockey player-turned-photographer, Chris Rumble, 22, who shot the video while undergoing leukemia treatment at Children's.

"Everyone was genuinely happy on Saturday when were filming that and all the parents were just happy too, which was kind of a relief for parents to see their kids having fun," Rumble said.

"I liked this song before .... now I love it! God bless Chris and all the children at SeattleChidren's...." wrote one commenter on Clarkson's post.
