MOBILE, Ala.—When Integrity Music singer/songwriter and worship leader Carlos Whittaker posted a clip of his children’s back-seat sing-along to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”—and the now-infamous incident that followed—on his www.ragamuffinsoul.com blog earlier this week, little did he know the priceless moment would grab the attention of CBS’ “The Early Show,” NBC’s “TODAY" and AOL, among other national outlets.

Carlos, his wife Heather, and children Sohaila, Seanna and Losiah, were interviewed from their Atlanta home this morning on CBS’ “The Early Show,” discussing the headline-grabbing incident, which can be viewed at www.ragamuffinsoul.com.

The video was also featured this morning on NBC’s “TODAY" show and the clip is slated to air on tonight’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on ABC. In addition, AOL’s ParentDish.com featured the video, along with an interview with Whittaker, yesterday: http://www.parentdish.com/2010/03/31/little-boy-weeps-when-told-hes-not-a-single-lady-but-dad-saves/

The viral video sensation is shedding new light on a subject dear to Whittaker’s heart: adoption. The Whittakers’ 4-year-old son, Losiah, who is featured in the clip, was adopted from South Korea in 2006, and the family has been given a new platform to encourage others to consider adoption.

Whittaker’s Integrity Music debut, Ragamuffin Soul, releases April 27. The project’s forthcoming single, “God of Second Chances,” penned by Whittaker, Jason Ingram and Phillip LaRue, was partially inspired by Losiah’s adoption. Carlos Whittaker’s blog, www.ragamuffinsoul.com, has a worldwide following of more than 20,000 people.
