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

#wouldntchangeathing 💖💖💖

A group of 50 mums of kids with Down’s syndrome has created a Carpool Karaoke-style video to raise awareness of children with an extra chromosome.

Mums who were part of the Facebook group “Designer Genes”, who all had a child with Down’s syndrome born in 2013/14, were inspired by a Singing Hands Carpool Karaoke video signed with Makaton, a simplified form of British Sign Language which is designed to help hearing people with learning or communication difficulties using signs alongside speech.

The mums decided to use the track ‘A Thousand Years’ by American singer Christina Perri. To get permission to feature the song, the group contacted Perri via her husband, Paul Costabile on Twitter. Within an hour, the LA-based couple replied declaring their support for the idea.
