Los Angeles, Calif. (January 7, 2011) – Singer/songwriter, blogger and recent YouTube phenomenon Carlos Whittaker was awarded the “Favorite Viral Video Star” Award at The People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday, January 5, 2011. Whittaker and his family were given a special segment on the live telecast, highlighting this unique award and the attention the family’s recent YouTube video segment has received.

The video went viral March of 2010 and as a result of its immense fan base, Whittaker and his family were featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CBS’ “The Early Show,” NBC’s “ The Today Show,” AOL, CNN, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” among many other international media outlets.

Currently, over 5 million people have viewed the clip titled “Single Ladies Devastation” in which Carlos’s son has an emotional “breakdown” reacting to his dad’s comments about him not being a “single lady,” while singing to Beyonce’s song “Single Ladies.” When it initially went viral, the video quickly received over 1 million hits in less than 4 days and can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sb9eL3ejXmE

Whittaker has since used the video’s international fame as a platform to raise awareness on the issue of adoption. His son and star of the video, Losiah, now four years old, was adopted from South Korea in 2006. Adoption is a topic that is very important to Whittaker and his family, and he hopes to encourage others to adopt and bring awareness to the issue.

Whittaker also actively writes on his own blog (http://www.ragamuffinsoul.com/) and released his album, Ragamuffin Soul through Provident/Integrity Distribution and Sony Music Entertainment on April 27, 2010.
