In the sweet video, the children and their mums mime along to the popular song while doing sign language.

The video was originally inspired by Singing Hands - a United Kingdom organisation whose videos have helped many in the group learn Makaton, a language program created to provide a means of communication to individuals who can not communicate efficiently by speaking alone.

Carless said they came up with the idea for the video after seeing videos by the group Singing Hands.

Late night host James Corden, the originator of "Carpool Karaoke", was so touched by the video that he tweeted: "This is the most lovely 'Carpool Karaoke.' It made me cry".

The moving video caught the attention of the British TV presenter 39, who hailed it said it was "beautiful" and admitted it had "made him cry".

To raise awareness for World Down Syndrome Day, 50 mums have recorded a video showing them performing Christina Perri's A Thousand Years with their children, who all have Down's Syndrome. A number of children were also joined by their siblings during the performance.

The mothers who appear in the video are all part of a Facebook group called "Designer Genes" for parents of children with Down syndrome.

The YouTubve video alone has been viewed nearly 800,000 times. They then break out into the song.
