Doctor delivers babies, brings happiness to families through gift of song

A doctor is getting recognition for his unique way of welcoming babies into the world with the gift of song.

Dr. Carey Andrew-Jaja says he has delivered thousands of babies during his career and has been known to sing soothing tunes to calm the newborns and families since he started as a doctor.

The doctor says he learned the trick from another physician while he was learning his practice. He was about to retire and asked him to carry on the tradition as he got into the medical field.
