"They were singing along!" Hoda Kotb said, They were all looking for themselves in the video as they sat on the couch, but then they were "singing along."

This is what Hoda Kotb told Access Hollywood today about the debut of her video earlier that morning on the fourth hour of the Today Show with Kathy Lee Gifford.

The Today show studio was filled with the beautiful children from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia that were the stars of the video. This video is Hoda's contribution to the TODAY's Shine A Light Series, a campaign to support worthy causes. Hoda herself battled cancer 7 years ago.

Hoda named her project "Project Truly Brave." With a little help from Cyndi Lauper and Sara Bareilles, she has created a stunning video which truly does not just shine a light but shows the light shining from all of these sick children. 

Hoda said she played around in the studio, got goosebumps when they hit on just the right song, and then, "They put the song in a blender and that's what came out."

This video is touching, colorful and powerful. Hopefully it will not just raise awareness of the human aspect of pediatric cancer but also raise funds so we can eradicate this disease.
