Boy With Autism Cries Tears of Joy For His Favorite Band

Have you seen the video? What an amazing capture of an autistic boy being moved by seeing his favorite band in person. If you haven’t seen the video, here it is.

Luis Noel, a little boy in Mexico City, walked into a Coldplay concert with his Dad on April 16th excited to see them live and in person. What he and his Dad didn’t know is the tears of joy that MILLIONS of people around the entire WORLD would have to choke back after seeing Luis’s emotional reaction to his favorite song, “Fix You.”

The video went viral and has over 4 million views on YouTube. Even Chris Martin and Coldplay tweeted out and shared the video, with a message.

“This kind of thing makes it all worthwhile. Hola Luis y tu hijo hermoso! Love cgqj&p”

As National Autism Awareness comes to a close, this heartwarming story brought an unmeasurable amount of awareness to the reality that those with autism have their own feelings and emotions. Seeing the fatherly love for a son with a developmentally disability is uplifting to say the least. Luis Sr, the father in the video responded to Coldplay and all of the viewers on twitter, showing he cares about raising awareness of the number of people living with autism.
