This is the beautiful moment a big sister performed a song she wrote just for her delighted younger brother.

Leah Kirwan from Carlingford posted the video to her music Facebook page yesterday, where it has already received more than 16,000 views.

In the clip, she sings to little Noah, who has Downs Syndrome.

The North Louth teenager and her little brother became internet sensations in 2015 after a casual video posted on a Facebook page went viral.

Leah took out her guitar for the special duet with Noah and she wrote on her Facebook page: 'Thought I'd do a duet with my favourite little man singing his favourite song, Titanium'.

The massive People Magazine in America also featured it on its website, along with inquisitr.com and Fox28.com. And the video has proven very popular in Europe too with French websites ladepeche.fr, telestar.fr and Magic Mama giving it the thumbs up along with Dutch website Telegraaf.nl.

Here are they lyrics to Leah's song:

The day I saw your baby face, you make this world a better place

Your eyes they lit up the whole room, we were taking you home very soon

Your tiny hands and little laugh, you were growing up way too fast

You are such a special boy, you fill our hearts with love and joy

 

And ooohh I promise I'll protect you and ooohh nobody is gonna hurt you

 

Cause you are a star to me and everyone in this family, you can live the life you want and be what you want to be

Despite your differences and troubles in the path, I'm always here for you just remember that

 

Ignore what bad people say, you'll meet a lot along the way. Show them all what you can do and know I am so proud of you. You've been through a lot in your life, between amazing moments and negative times. With a smile, you get through it all. Hold on tight and stand up tall

 

And ooohh I promise I'll protect you and ooohh nobody is gonna hurt you

 

Cause you are a star to me and everyone in this family, you can live the life you want and be what you want to be

despite your differences and troubles in the path, I'm always here for you just remember that

 

You are in the hearts of everyone

Your smile is brighter than the sun

You make all the bad days seem great

Accept all love and ignore all hate

We're blessed to have you here today

You're amazing in every single way

Live your life the way you choose

And just know we're all so proud of you

 

And ooohh I promise I'll protect you and ooohh nobody is gonna hurt you

 

Cause you are a star to me and everyone in this family, you can live the life you want and be what you want to be

Despite your differences and troubles in the path, I'm always here for you just remember that

I'm always here for you just remember that
