These adorable children with Down syndrome are the latest internet sensations.

It is all thanks to a video of them belting out a song in the style of James Corden’s famous Late Show segment.

It shows 50 families from across the UK 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.

The uplifting video — titled “50 Mums, 50 Kids, 1 Extra Chromosome” — even caught the attention of James, 39, who said it was “the most beautiful Carpool Karaoke” and it had “made him cry”.

It has since gone viral and been seen more than 500,000 times on YouTube and three million times on Facebook.

The video has been released to mark World Down Syndrome Day tomorrow, and is accompanied by the hashtag #wouldntchangeathing.
