Carpool Karaoke Video Featuring Kids With Down Syndrome Goes Viral


A total of 50 moms and their children have taken to their cars to lip sync and sign to the song “A Thousand Years” — and it’s the cutest carpool karaoke video yet. The YouTube clip has been made by moms from a UK Facebook Group called Designer Genes, set up for parents who have a child with Down syndrome born in 2013 to 2014, to commemorate World Down Syndrome Day on March 21.

These pint-sized stars and their moms and siblings are melting hearts across the world as they sing along to the Christina Perri ballad, about how they “wouldn’t change a thing.” The YouTube video alone has been viewed almost 800,000 times. The video, posted on Facebook by the dad who pulled the video together, James McCallum, has been viewed more than 2.7 million times and shared almost 60,000 times.

Watch the heartwarming footage for yourself here:

TV presenter James Corden, who has become famous for doing this type of carpool karaoke with celebrities, revealed that it moved him to tears.

The video was originally inspired by Singing Hands, a UK organization whose videos have helped many in the group learn Makaton, a language program designed to provide a means of communication to individuals who cannot communicate efficiently by speaking alone.

As one FB commenter summed up perfectly: “With all the rubbish going on in the world, this is so beautiful and inspiring brought a tear to my eyes xxx.”
