Kids fighting cancer at Hopkins get love from One Direction

You're Beautiful
(You Tube)

Kids fighting cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital have caught the attention of one of the biggest names in pop: the band One Direction.

The children along with their families and hospital staff at the Kimmel Cancer Center put together a video of the kids lip-synching to the One Direction song, "You're Beautiful."


They posted it on You Tube and it was barely up for two days before one of the band's young heart-throbs saw it, loved it -- and sang it from the rooftops today.

"Just seen this amazing video from @HopkinsKids," the band's Liam Payne Tweeted. "Love you guys! big hugs from meeeee and the boysssss."

Check out the video here:

With the endorsement of Payne, who has nearly 6 million Twitter followers, the video could easily go viral.

Payne's Tweet has already been shared this afternoon more than 8,000 times -- in less than an hour.
