Meet the Carpool Karaoke mums who brought James Corden to tears

The Carpool Karaoke-style clip was filmed by a group of 50 mums in an online support group to pay tribute to their wonderful kids for World Down's Syndrome Day.

In support of World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD) 50 mothers and their children came together in a vehicle pool karaoke lip sync video, singing along to Christina Perri's award-winning song "A Thousand Years".

If you thought nothing could beat Adele singing a Spice Girls hit, or Lin-Manuel Miranda having a rap battle James Corden while driving around NY, then you haven't seen what the late-show host himself says is "the most handsome Carpool Karaoke ever".

One person wrote: "The video of the down syndrome karaoke carpool on this morning had me in tears!"

A group of proud mothers of children with Down syndrome in England banded together to produce a video for World Down Syndrome Day, which is Wednesday, and ended up getting some celebrity support along the way.

It has been a week since the video has been published and has grabbed the eye-balls of more than 500,000 viewers.

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.

Rebecca Carless, who appears in the video with her 4-year-old son Archie, described the reaction it had received as "mad".

Mum-of-three Rebecca Carless, 35, from Coventry, got the idea after seeing videos by the group Singing Hands who do nursery rhymes in Makaton.

The session was called "50 mums, 50 kids and one extra chromosome".
