We thought Hoda was Sara Bareilles' biggest fan, but we think these brave hematology and oncology patients and their doctors may have her beat.

The Amplatz Children's Hospital at the University of Minnesota made Bareilles' song "Brave" their anthem — the song that happened to be Hoda's iHoda pick last week — and both patients and staffers took part in a sweet, uplifting video, singing along to the hit song.

"There's a great line in there that says 'show me how big your brave is," explained Hoda, and it really encapsulates the spirit of the kids. 

Bareilles thought so, too.

She saw the video and tweeted, "Crying, watching this. Thank you for inspiring me, Amplatz Children's hospital."

Be right back, there's something in our eye. 

Video: TODAY’s own Hoda Kotb admits she can be a bit scatterbrained and often misplaces really important items… like her NBC Universal ID badge. But Fourth Hour viewers prove they aren’t like the sinners and cheaters in this week’s hot poll, especially the good Samaritan from Houston who returned Hoda’s lost badge!
