50 Mums And Their Children With Down's Syndrome Make Emotional Carpool Karaoke-Style Video

They chose to create the fun clip ahead of World Down Syndrome Day on March 21 to celebrate their kids.

50 mothers whose children have Down's Syndrome said they are overwhelmed by the support they have received since their video went viral.

"We believe this video really does have the potential to be the most viewed across the world on World Down's Syndrome Day this year, so we urge everyone to share share share to help us make it a success", said mum Becky Carless (below), who took part in the video and is mum to four-year-old Archie.

The original clip sees the families from across the United Kingdom using Makaton - a form of sign language that also uses symbols and speech to aid communication - to follow Christina Perri's hit A Thousand Years.

James Corden, the English comedian known for his Carpool Karaoke videos, called the video "the most lovely carpool karaoke video ever".
