Incredibly touching viral video from Luis Vazquez, who took his young son to watch his favorite band, Coldplay. As the iconic British band played one of the boy’s most-loved songs, "Fix You," he immediately starts to well-up.
The boy becomes so overcome with emotion that he stops dancing and puts his head in his hands.
I get every single second of this short video. And the father's kiss on his son's cheek at the 1:12 second mark blows me over the edge.
First - autism is part of my family. I have a grasp of how it affects not only an individual, but the surrounding family. When authentic joy arrives, it's overwhelming for everyone involved.
Second - Coldplay is my favorite band. Why or how I respond to their music, I don't know, I just do. Some things really are just visceral.
I can watch this over and over again.
The power of music.
