People combat the stress of surgery in different ways.

Specifically their song “She Will Be Loved,” which he performed live from the ICU last week. The 16-year-old’s performance was captured on YouTube and Twitter and is currently making the rounds on social media. Will’s brother Mac was the cameraman for the performance; both are students at The McCallie School, a private prep school for boys in Chattanooga.

Hunt is battling cardiomyopathy — a disease of the heart muscle — and has been scheduled for two surgeries at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. Yesterday, he underwent his first — the second will involve a heart transplant.
