This Boy with Autism Had a Powerful Emotional Reaction to Hearing Coldplay Live!

The next time someone tries to tell you that people on the spectrum are emotionless, direct them to this video. Why? Because this is proof that that’s simply not the case!

This adorable boy with autism is a big fan of Coldplay, so his parents took him to a concert in Mexico City in April of 2016. When the band played “Fix You,” a song he loves, he was overcome with such joy that he began to weep. (Isn’t that just too sweet?!)

Luckily, the precious moment was captured on video and went viral…and even Coldplay saw it!

Their response came in the form of a tweet:

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

(Just in case you were wondering, the Spanish part of this tweet is saying “Hello Luis and your beautiful son!”)

Watch the touching moment here!
