Carpool Karaoke video of kids with Down syndrome will melt your heart

A carpool karaoke lip sync video has just about broken the internet today, and our hearts!

The trending clip was created by a group of mums to raise awareness of World Down Syndrome Day

It comes as a new advanced prenatal test for Down is being introduced this year, which is expected to see terminations of Down syndrome babies rise.

The mums are part of a group on Facebook called “Designer Genes”, which was created for parents who have a child with Down syndrome born in 2013/2014.

They’re hoping to show the world just how ordinary and fun life can be with the condition – and how they #WouldntChangeAThing.

The Carpool Karaoke video sees 50 families of gleeful children singing or signing Makaton, a form of sign language including speech, along to Christina Perri’s multi-platinum selling track, “A Thousand Years”.

The uplifting video — titled 50 Mums, 50 Kids, 1 Extra Chromosome — even caught the attention of James Corden, who has performed Carpool Karaokes with some of the world’s biggest stars on the Late Late Show, who said it was “the most beautiful Carpool Karaoke ever”.
