Father and his son with autism, reaction at a Coldplay concert touches millions

For those with children with autism, may you have a moment like this, it's awesome!

Luis Vasquez and his wife took their son to watch his favorite band perform in Mexico City on April 16, 2016. As Coldplay began playing one of their hit songs, "Fix You," the young boy began to cry as he jumped up and down. His father then held him tight and sang along in an emotional moment.

The video was shared online and quickly went viral. As of Wednesday, April 27, 2016, the video had over 3 million views on YouTube and even caught the attention of Coldplay.
