Viewers loved the touching moment The children used Makaton to dance to Christina Perri's hit A Thousand Years.

The mums are all part of a Facebook group known as "Designer Genes" created for parents who have a child born with Down Syndrome born in 2013/14.

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

One mother came up with the concept as a way of raising awareness about the condition, to "show the world just how ordinary and fun life is" and how they "wouldn't change a thing". Because everyone is unique, the level of delay will be different for each person, "the organisation states on its website. Very often, people with Down syndrome can understand a lot more than they can express with words".
