Six-Year-Old Boy Sings Justin Bieber Love Song To His Newborn Brother With Down Syndrome In Sweet Video

This is the adorable moment a six-year-old boy sang a Justin Bieber love song to his newborn brother with Down syndrome.

Little Tripp Grieve spent his first month in hospital after being born with the genetic condition.


His big brother Rayce, six, assured his mom Nicole Powell, 29, he'd always look out for his precious brother - and asked to give him a cuddle one morning.

And the mom-of-five was left smiling when the schoolboy started singing "their song" — "10,000 Hours" by Dan + Shay & Justin Bieber.

She captured the touching moment on her phone, to send to husband JJ, 39.

Police officer Nicole also posted it on her Facebook - where the clip amazingly racked up more than 8 MILLION views.

Nicole, from Cabot, Arkansas, said:

"It's amazing. I had wondered our purpose - of why now do we have a baby with Down syndrome. I think maybe it was to bring love and awareness. People are so terrified of what can happen. But he's perfect. It's super scary, but parenthood is scary in general. I'm so proud of my sons."

Nicole and husband JJ, who owns a car sales business, found out Tripp would likely have the condition during scans before he was born.

She admits they were "not educated" about Downs syndrome and said doctors warned he could have major heart problems.

"Honestly I was really terrified because I wasn't educated at all about Down syndrome, and I hadn't been around anyone with Down syndrome," she said, adding:

"I had this horrible picture in my head and I was thinking the absolute worst. My biggest fear was I was afraid of the future. I was uneducated and didn't understand. I thought 'I have four other children, they all love each other, I just want them to love him the same way they love each other.'"
"We explained to them early. I didn't know much but I told them what I did know. We told them it just means he will be different but he's still your brother. The boys answered and told us 'but we're all different.' And we were like 'ok, this is going to be fine.'"

She said later scans revealed his heart was healthy, and when she finally saw him when he was born via c-section on November 21 he was "absolutely perfect."

After a month in the hospital he came home to the family - including Jayce, nine, Rayce, six, Grayce, two, and Reese, one, on Christmas Eve.

On the way home in the car the love song "10,000 Hours" came on the radio, and Rayce started singing it to his little brother.

"Both the boys love music," said Nicole.

"Rayce was saying 'this song is about me and you' - he doesn't know it's about a husband and wife. He decided it was 'their song.'"

She woke up on December 30 and took Tripp in to see Rayce and Jayce, and the eldest was listening to the song on YouTube, and asked to hold his brother.

He cradled him and stared into Tripp's eyes while he sang the song:

"I'd spend ten thousand hours and ten thousand more. Oh, if that's what it takes to learn that sweet heart of yours. And I might never get there, but I'm gonna try. If it's ten thousand hours or the rest of my life.I'm gonna love you."

She posted the video online before she went to bed, and was surprised when it received 90 likes before she fell asleep.

But she woke up to see it had been viewed a million times overnight, and a week later it has more than 8,000,000 views.

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:
