My Favorite Thing Today: The Power Of Music

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.
