Zach Sobiech’s ‘Clouds’ hits No. 1 on iTunes
Seven years after his death to cancer at age 18, a Minnesota singer-songwriter has returned to the top of the iTunes chart with his inspirational tune "Clouds."
"Clouds," by Zach Sobiech, took over iTunes’ No. 1 slot on Sunday, according to iTunes’ top songs chart. It comes just two days after the Hollywood movie of the same name based on Sobiech’s life premiered on Disney+.
The ranking is based on downloads of the song.
The single first climbed to the top of iTunes in 2013, shortly after the Stillwater-area teenager’s death. Sobiech had been diagnosed with bone cancer four years earlier.
The movie is an adaptation of the memoir "Fly a Little Higher" by Zach’s mother, Laura Sobiech. It was filmed in some parts of Minnesota, including the Mall of America last Christmas during the Clouds Choir for a Cause concert.
