Emotional video shows young autistic boy in tears as he watches Coldplay perform


A video showing an autistic boy totally overcome with emotion as he listens to Coldplay has swept the internet. The clip, which shows the young child watching the band perform their hit song Fix You at a concert in Mexico, has gone viral since it was posted online – and has even been shared by the band themselves.

It was filmed by proud father Luis Vazquez and his wife, as they took their little boy to see his favourite band. Alongside the video, Luis wrote: "Something my wife and I decided to share with the whole wide world. You have to watch it! It says it all! You guys #coldplay please need to see this!"

Luis Vazquez uploaded the incredibly touching video on YouTube

It has been shared by thousands of people on Facebook and Twitter and has over 1.9million views on YouTube. And it did indeed reach the British band, who posted it on their official page with the words: "This kind of thing makes it all worthwhile. Hola Luis y tu ijo hermoso! Love."

The clip shows the young boy trying to sing and dance along next to his father, but is so overcome with emotion he cannot help but put his head in his hands and cry. His dad, seeing his son’s reaction, also becomes emotional and presses his son's head to his as he sings the words to him.
