If you’ve ever watched The Late, Late Show with James Corden then you’ve probably seen one of his most famous segments, Carpool Karoake.
It’s an entertaining way for Corden to interview some of the most famous names in music, while also getting to hear some of the day’s most popular tunes.
Well, some intrepid moms decided that they would do their own version of carpool karaoke in an effort to raise awareness for World Down’s Syndrome Day, in the hopes that they could help educate people about the beauty and wonder of children with Down Syndrome.
If you can watch this video without crying, you may need to get your tear ducts inspected… or you may be a robot.
One of the ugliest things the history books will write about our generation is that we stopped Down Syndrome – not with gene therapy, or a cure, but with abortion. Down’s babies deserve life.
Watch and Enjoy!
A carpool karaoke lip sync video in support of World Down Syndrome Day features 50 mums and their children singing along to Christina Perri’s multi-platinum selling track, “A Thousand Years”.
The mums are all part of a Facebook group known as “Designer Genes” created for parents who have a child with Down’s Syndrome born in 2013/14. They got together to show the world just how ordinary and fun life with the condition is and how they “Wouldn’t Change a Thing”.
The video was originally inspired by Singing Hands – a UK organisation who’s videos have helped many in the group learn Makaton for supporting their children’s communication development. Makaton is designed to help hearing people with learning or communication difficulties using signs, symbols alongside speech.
With thanks to the artist Christina Perri for her support and Singing Hands for the original concept.

When British actor and American TV star James Corden learned about the beautiful tribute, he was moved to tears.
