As my dad likes to call it, this video is sure to be a tear-jerker. I was sitting in class, and I saw someone share the clip on Facebook. Little did I know I would be tearing up in class about two seconds later–how could you not?!
Luiz Vasquez and his wife decided to take their 6-year-old autistic son to see his favorite band. The mom caught both boys with their hands up in the air, jamming along to Coldplay’s concert in Mexico City’s Foro Sol stadium.
When Coldplay started singing, “Fix You,” the little boy couldn’t hold in his emotion, and his dad followed suit. As the song went on, Vasquez continued to sing into his child’s ear, hugging and comforting him.
When his mom decided to share the video on social media, it quickly went viral, reaching over two million views already, including Coldplay! The band tweeted the video with the caption, “This kind of thing makes it all worthwhile.”
What a beautiful representation of the power of music.
